Timberwolves expected to offer Kevin Love $70 million contract extension

24

Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love can look forward to a contract extension offer of six years in the $70 million range once a new NBA labor deal is reached, a little birdie says. The NBA’s collective bargaining agreement expires June 30. Love, 22, can become a restricted free agent after the 2012-2013 season. The Wolves have no intention of letting him get that far. Love, who is being paid $4.61 million this season and is signed for $6.1 million next season, leads the NBA in rebounding (15.5 average) and double-doubles (56, five more than Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin), and ranks 18th in scoring with a 20.9-point average. Love said Tuesday evening that he likes Minnesota and hopes to remain here.
