News broke earlier in the week that All-Star power forward Kevin Love wanted out of the ailing Minnesota Timberwolves franchise.
Well according to reports from CSN New England, the 25-year old would be incredibly receptive to the chance of playing for the Boston Celtics if the team ever came in for him.
From CSN basketball analyst Tim Welsh:
A source close to Love said that the three-time All-star, "wants to play for an organization that's going to be a winning organization; not necessarily I have to go to a championship team now, but a team that's going to be built to move in that direction. Maybe it'll take a couple years. That's OK. But he needs a change from Minnesota."
Love played college ball at UCLA and is originally from Santa Monica, California so a move back out to the west coast seems to make most sense, but apparently it isn't a top priority and just wants to join a team that is heading in the right direction.
While the Celtics definitely have some assets, Rajon Rondo is a top 3 point guard and they hold multiple draft picks, Boston don't strike me as a team that is going to bounce back too quickly from their awful 25-57 season in 2013/14.
I definitely wouldn't be putting Boston anywhere near the top of the Love-Race at the moment, but they are capable of putting together a rather tempting offer.
