Kevin Love is “anxious” to leave Minnesota, and the Celtics are among a handful of teams in pursuit of the three-time NBA All-Star, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge reportedly plans to offer the team’s lottery pick as part of a package for Love. The lottery is Tuesday night.

Love has told the Timberwolves brass he plans to exercise his 2015 early termination option and sign elsewhere if he is not traded, according to ESPN.
