Kevin Love could be one of the most coveted free agents in 2015, provided he opts out of his contract. Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that Love has one team in his sights:
The Lakers are combing the trade market for an athletic power forward who fits Mike D’Antoni’s system, though it isn’t clear how high they’re aiming. If LA is looking for a premium player in return for Pau Gasol, league sources say Gasol’s trade value has plummeted to the point where such a deal is unrealistic.
Also, rival executives are skeptical that the Lakers would be willing to cut into future cap space, especially with an Eastern Conference executive telling CBSSports.com this week that “everyone knows” 2015 free agent Kevin Love wants to sign with LA.
No surprise here. Love grew up in Southern California and went to UCLA. His smokeshow girlfriend is a former UCLA cheerleader.
He’s also getting frustrated with losing in Minnesota.
No worries. As long as Mike D’Antoni is the coach, the Lakers aren’t winning squat.
