    Re: Kevin Love Stays in Minnesota

    Despite reports Tuesday night of a contract extension between Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves, two sources close to the process told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that Love has not agreed to anything and that talks are "ongoing." hoopshype

    Kevin Love: If you read it on the Internet it must be true right? #sarcasm from Twitter

    They'll work out a deal.  But if they don't, I hope Danny makes him a max offer at the end of the season and make Minny match (which they DON'T want to do as they are not a big money team).

    In Response to Re: Kevin Love Stays in Minnesota : Come on, that's not true. In 1998, a year after signing Kevin Garnett to an unprecedented 6-year, $126 million contract , the Timberwolves were used as the poster child of irresponsible spending as the NBA endured a 4-month lockout that wiped out much of the season. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Timberwolves

    That's right.....and what have they done since then?  The entire set of small market teams wanted a continued lockout because they wanted to stop the big spending.  Guess who was a big part of that "small market movement"?   They are negotiating hard to give Love less than the max.  Why?  Because they are smart and they don't want to lock themselves up with any more contracts like they gave KG.

    KG was a long time ago for them.  They've changed.  But, I still contend they'll get him this year.  My contengency plan is that if they don't, Celtics should offer the max and how Minny resorts to a sign and trade to avoid a single big contract.

    A max contract is only 1 more year then what they have offered to Love.
    The Celtics can only offer Love a similar contract that is on the table right now. (4 years).
    Kevin won't be traded to Boston.

    Re: Kevin Love Stays in Minnesota

    Celtics fans here seem to think Boston can offer Love a max contract which Minnesota wouldn't want to match because they are a small market team. The level of educated fans here is comical....

    My T-Wolves won't let Kevin leave.

    It looks like Boston might get shut out in trying to sign a big name player this summer. They could always offer 4/$35m to Kim Humphries...

    Yea, we want a lot of drama next year, mtrax, so we're going after both Humphries and Odom!!  The realtiy show - the Kardashian hubby and ex-hubby can't be far behind!!

    But - for the record, IF he became an RFA, we COULD offer him a max deal, which would force (NOT) your T-Wolves to match. It will be moot if he signs, but until he does, we can hope......kind of like your REAL team trying to get DH or DW (who could both end up on DAL) - Dream On.

    Have a great night, mtrax!!
