Friday (Your roundup of Kevin Love rumors) edition: Wha' Happened?

Posted by: Michael Rand under Wolves news Updated: June 13, 2014 - 10:07 AM

 

By now, you're almost certainly aware of Kevin Love's special field trip to Boston a couple weekends ago. You've also heard the sound bites from his appearance Wednesday on ESPN's SportsNation.

 

But that's not the end of the Kevin Love trade speculation, nor is it the end of what he has been saying lately. Let's take a quick spin, because as a great columnist once told us, "There's a lot of stuff on that Internet."

*A bunch of kids got to interview Love, and we finally saw him asked some tough questions and with his guard down a little. He was asked how it feels to try to be "trapped" by other teams before his contract expires -- the original line of questioning was about a video game in which that's a thing -- and Love had this to say: "It's a humbling experience. It's an honor to try to be trapped by other teams. ... You just have to roll with the punches and hope you end up on the right one."

*Love doesn't think trade rumors about him going to Cleveland are off-base. He told The Big Lead as much in response to a question about trade rumors: "I try not to read it. A lot of it is brought to my attention through outside sources, sometimes twitter. But like most people, I need to be conscious of my image and try to roll with the punches. I know that’s a generic answer. I don’t think the Cleveland [trade rumors] are outlandish at all. They have a great young foundation."

*The Rockets reportedly don't think they have enough assets to acquire Love.

Keep all of this in mind as we move toward the inevitable Love trade.
