Lakers News: Kevin Love believes T'Wolves have 'better foundation' than Lakers

The one big-name player that every Lakers fans is hoping lands in Los Angeles before the NBA trade deadline is Kevin Love. Although there's been many different reports linking Love to the Lakers, a trade seems unlikely. Not only is a trade unlikely, but Love might not leave Minnesota after all according to an interview he did with GQ Magazine as of Feb. 19:

“People think it’s so far-fetched that I would stay in Minnesota,” he says. “And I’m not s------- on the Lakers, but we have the better team, the better foundation. I’m having fun.”

At this point in time, Minnesota is not a desired destination for big-name free agents. The Timberwolves may have some talented players like Love, Kevin Martin and Ricky Rubio, but they simply haven't been able to put it together under head coach Rick Adelman.

With that being said, Love playing for Minnesota may end up being a lost cause in the long run in terms of contending for an NBA title. Even though all it takes is one season for it to come together for the Timberwolves, it doesn't appear as if that'll happen in the near future leaving Love with a big decision to make in the summer of 2015.

Only time will tell if Love can help right the ship next season for the T'Wolves. Minnesota will likely do everything within their power to keep their superstar, but the bright lights and lifestyle in Los Angeles might be too much to pass up once officially an unrestricted free agent in July of 2015.
