Kevin Love is playing at an incredibly high level right now. As he continues to establish himself as a legitimate superstar, though, rumors will always follow.
He can choose to opt out of his contract after next season, and the New York Knicks are already plotting to land the stud power forward, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Adrian Wojnarowski - remember him? - has sources who say that the Knicks are targeting a 2015 opt-out for Love to bring in the power forward and convince Carmelo Anthony to stay beyond this season.
Anthony has an opt-out in July and right now the Knicks are in turmoil. It may be too early to panic, but at 2-4 and missing Tyson Chandler due to injury many Knicks fans are on edge.
To be clear, the report presents no comment from Love or anyone in the Wolves' camp on the matter.
That means it's probably premature for Wolves fans to fret about potentially losing Love. It's certainly possible Minnesota is his best option after next season; it's possible he won't exercise his opt-out clause in 2015; it's possible he could opt out and still re-sign a richer deal in Minnesota.
Wojnarowski has ruffled feathers before with Love, Wolves' brass and the team's fans before. For now, fret not, Wolves fan. You've got a good thing going.
