Love Getting Impatient with T-Wolves; Interested In Rush
Timberwolves forward Kevin Love in talking to yahoo sports indicates that he’s growing impatient with the Timberwolves organization for not surrounding him with better talent. Love signed a 4-year $62 Million contract extension last season but says he’s not sure what will happen if they miss the playoffs next year.
Love is the only member of the United States Olympic team that hasn’t played in the NBA playoffs. Love led the Wolves averaging 26 points and 13 points in 2011-2012. Minnesota was 26-40 last season. He likes the additions of Chase Budinger and Brandon Roy in the off-season so far.
CBS Sports is reporting that the Timberwolves are interested in free agent shooting guard Brandon Rush. CBS Sports says if the Wolves don’t get Nicolas Batum from Portland they will turn their attention to Rush. Portland has until July 14 to match the Wolves offer sheet to Batum. Rush averaged 9.8 points a game in Golden State in 2011-2012. He shot 45 percent from 3-point range last season.
