Report: Timberwolves told Kevin Love to sit out the World Cup

Kevin Love took the heat for withdrawing from Team USA, but it might not have been just his decision. Despite their posturing, the Timberwolves are reportedly set on trading Love. They don’t want him getting injured before they can complete a deal, and they have to wait for the Cavaliers to be allowed to trade Andrew Wiggins. That might explain Love taking it easy this summer.

How the Celtics could still benefit from a Kevin Love to Cleveland deal

Last week I posted about how the Celtics have begun to accept that they're no longer in the Kevin Love race, as when all the dust is settled, there's not a truly compelling argument for either side to say 'no' in a potential Wiggins for Love trade.

Former Cavalier Mo Williams to Minnesota doesn’t make the most sense

The cynical view here is that Minnesota doesn’t need a 31-year-old backup guard. The team probably isn’t going...
