The official Celtics-centric Kevin Love timeline 2.0

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On June 25, 2014 @ 2:06 pm In General | No Comments

The Celtics-centric story surrounding Kevin Love [1] actually began before the All-Star break, but Boston’s Love affair reached “Fatal Attraction” levels when the three-time NBA All-Star spent three days in the city a few weeks back.

Since then, Timberwolves [2] president of basketball operations Flip Saunders [3] and Celtics [4] counterpart Danny Ainge have seemingly pulled the puppet strings masterfully, casting sources in a drama worthy of Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. The plot thickens every day, so here’s the storyboard updated through the latest episode.

Rumored Kings, Warriors, Lakers, Suns, Bulls, Nuggets and Cavaliers [29] offers have been put out to pasture. All the while, the C’s package remains with the possibility of Ainge sweetening the deal. If the Wolves are looking to trade Love — and it seems inevitable given his stated goal to leave via free agency next summer and the ensuing circus the past six weeks — then the Celtics still stand among the favorites (if not the favorite) for his services.

For further analysis, read about Ainge’s final play for Love [30].
