Despite several reports stating the contrary, Glen Taylor, owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves, has indicated that their plan is not to trade F/C Kevin Love.  Love has been in the center of many trade scenarios involving the Rockets, Knicks, Lakers, and Celtics.  Love is slated to become a free agent during the off-season of 2015.  

"I'm not in a position where you would say absolutely I wouldn't do it, because what if something that I can't even speculate (on) happens? You'd say, 'You're nuts, Glen.' Maybe some team puts a value on him that's different than we suspect.....At this point, we're not talking to any teams," Taylor said. "I haven't heard from Kevin or his agents or anything like that. We're assuming that Kevin will be here next season, and we're working with that scenario. This isn't the time for us to do anything but to prepare for next year.

"As far as Flip and I, there's nothing that has happened," he said. "Flip is getting ready for the draft and interviewing for a coach, and that's where our priority has got to be.....Kevin came here, played here, became an all-star here ... I mean, what a wonderful environment. The fans have been great and support him. I'm not sure that could have happened at other places.....To be in a position where we have to defend that he might leave or not leave when he's under contract, it's difficult."
