Minnesota Is Entering a "Win Now" Strategy
Minnesota is entering a win now phase and they are off to a nice 5-3 start this season thanks to their expected strong offense and a better than expected defense.
Thanks to the legacy of David Kahn (who refused to give him a five year max contract extension), Love can opt out in the summer of 2015 and almost certainly will. Its no secret around the league that Love has had his frustrations with the Timberwolves and he is seen as a guy who could bolt. He will be the marquee free agent of 2015 and likely will have the Knicks, Lakers and maybe even Bulls among others knocking on his door.
