Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor calls Kevin Love trade ‘likely’

Last we heard from Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, he said he expected Kevin Love in training camp.

Of course, Minnesota has hardly acted on that assumption.

The Timberwolves asked Love to sit out the World Cup and have spoken with the 76ers about getting Thaddeus Young to replace Love. Taylor – and everyone else in the organization – realizes Love is getting traded.

Now Taylor is finally saying it.

Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press:

The Timberwolves say now that they expect to trade disgruntled all-star Kevin Love and that a deal is expected Aug. 23 or Aug. 24.

“I’m saying it’s most likely because Kevin has made it pretty clear that that’s what he wants to do,” Wolves owner Glen Taylor told the Pioneer Press.

Aug. 23 is when the Cavaliers can trade Andrew Wiggins, lending more credence to the belief Love will join LeBron James in Cleveland.

That doesn’t mean a deal is set. Likely, details remain. Will a third team be involved? Will Minnesota include Kevin Martin and/or J.J. Barea? Which players acquired from the Jazz will be necessary to make salaries match?

But the inevitability of Love becoming a Cavalier becomes increasingly clear.

    Have you been responding to me pundit. I can’t tell because you seem to be speaking towards no one in particular with your meandering posts. If you are responding to me please don’t because I have no interest in what you have to say. Thank you.

    And in return pundit I will agree not to comment on your posts. That will be easy since I never read them anyway.

    1 year rental for Cavs. I hope he’s worth it! Championship or bust.

      He’ll miss Minneapolis/St. Paul. There’s really no metropolis that friendly yet urban in a cosmopolitan way although I haven’t been to San Antonio. He may not miss the winters, but you had to grow up in the cold to appreciate it.
