Kevin Love is off to a great start this season and has reminded teams how much of a game-changer he can be. Whether they needed the reminder or not, the New York Knicks reportedly have decided that they want to make a big push for Love in 2015.
Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Love will almost assuredly opt out of his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2015, and that the Knicks will be waiting.
Here’s what Woj reports:
The Knicks are sold on Love in 2015, sources tell Yahoo Sports, and they’ve already begun devising a strategy to lure him when the time comes.
That is a year and a half away, so a lot can change before then. First up for the Knicks will be seeing what happens with Carmelo Anthony, who seems to have interest in potentially going to the Los Angeles Lakers. But Love is a fantastic player who many teams will pursue. I just don’t think he’s dumb enough to go to the dysfunctional Knicks. There will be plenty of other attractive options.
