Continued: Scoggins: Make sure to get some value if Kevin Love is lost

From Love’s perspective, a change of address would bring increased expectations. Any team trading for him will be forced to give up a bounty, which means Love will be expected to make that team championship caliber. He’ll need to prove that he’s more than a player who just puts up stats. The reaction also won’t be so forgiving if he shows up to practice with a broken hand and a curious explanation involving knuckle pushups.

Love has worked diligently to transform himself into an elite player. He gave the Wolves everything he had this season, and yet his departure looks inevitable.

What a shame.
