Other players along with Faried could go to Minnesota for the All-Star Timberwolves power forward.
It is clear that Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love wants to get out of Dodge, or Minnesota, as it where.
The rumbles of discontent has turned into public statement questioning he direction the franchise is taking after missing out on the NBA playoffs yet again, despite having a side on paper that could have win a 6-8 seed.
Two of the primate target markets for Love include the Chicago Bulls, to give Love a chance to play in the playoffs much less win a title.
And the Boston Celtics, who are reportedly willing to give up a king’s ransom in current and future draft picks and young players they feel have a big up-side to secure a player they could build around for the future.
However, a third player has entered the race for Love with the Denver Nuggets offering Kenneth Faried for Love.
Reports suggest the Nuggets are willing to throw in their number 11 draft pick this year and possibly Wilson Chandler to sweeten the deal, which is arguably the best the Timberwolves have been presented with so far.
Faried will make just $2.3million next season, well under what the energetic rebounder and hustle player can provide to a team.
However, Faried is eligible for restricted free agency next summer, however, so if the Wolves are worried about losing Love as a free agent, they could be right back in the same situation if they trade for Faried.
Love has expressed his desire to land in a location where he can help a team win a titles in the next season or two, and it can be argued that Denver is not that place.
