While the Knicks still search for a head coach having been spurned by Steve Kerr, could Kevin Love be headed the the Garden?
He’s open to the idea according to Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News. In Lawrence’s notes column he writes that while Love’s preference is to go to the Lakers he’s open to playing for the Knicks:
Kevin Love’s people reiterated to the Timberwolves this past week that they had better trade him or else he’ll leave via free agency when his contract is up after next season. With Love looking to exit, there’s your No. 1 reason the T-wolves have not been able to find a head coach to take over for Rick Adelman. Love wants to play for the Lakers but he’s also open to coming to the Knicks.
The disgruntled forward has told the Timberwolves that he wants to be traded or he will leave via free agency.
The Timberwolves, according to Yahoo! Sports, are for the first time openly considering a trade of Love. The Lakers, Celtics and Suns are expected to be among the suitors.
