Aiming to keep Love
A decision on the future of Love has not been made, Saunders said. He will no doubt make every effort to convince the All-Star forward to stay here.
“We probably have 16 teams that have called us,” Saunders said, regarding interest in Love around the league. “We haven’t called anybody.”
Regarding Love’s recent weekend visit to Boston, Saunders said he didn’t know if it had any connection with basketball.
“I don’t think [the] Boston [Celtics] had anything to do with it. But I don’t know,” he said.
Apparently Love’s agent is telling teams that Love will enter free agency next season, but financially, Love can make more money staying with the Wolves.
“We can sign him to a five-year deal, the last year of his contract would be $27.5 million,” Saunders said. “Anybody that is his number of years serviced in the league, that’s what their contract is. To go sign as a free agent anywhere else, he can only sign for four years, so you’re not getting that fifth year.”
Look for Taylor to do everything under the NBA financial rules to keep Love.
