Kevin Love has a lot of goals in the NBA. Breaking news was not one of them. But early Wednesday morning, the Minnesota Timberwolves forward unknowingly played the role of the reporter on Twitter.

@kevin_love: Today is a sad day…Kevin McHale will NOT be back as head coach next season.

Love Tweeted about McHale’€™s status with the Timberwolves before the organization had made any news public. Teammate Mark Madsen also Retweeted the news on his page.

According to the Associated Press, ‘€œUpon seeing the posting, a person in the league was told McHale sent a text message to Love indicating he was not coming back. The person requested anonymity because no official announcement has been made.’€

Two hours after the initial Tweet, Love offered a clarification:

@kevin_love: P.S. I am not a breaking news guy…I had no idea no one knew..I’ll tell them I stayed at a holiday inn express last night. Always works….

News on McHale’€™s future had been expected. Last week the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported McHale and president of basketball operations David Kahn met for the third time.

The former Boston Celtic has collected a 39-55 coaching record over the last two seasons with the Timberwolves.
