When the Wolves announced those three new players at the Minnesota State Fair in August, Taylor questioned whether Love would accept being a third option behind James and Irving and wondered if the Cavaliers would demand Love play better defense than he did the Wolves. Love said he wasn’t hurt by Taylor’s typically blunt comments. “No, no, it was to the point where I knew I was getting traded and between the players he got, especially Wiggins, I thought he got a lot of value,” Love said. “Just sometimes you don’t press send and sometimes you do and wish you had it back.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Love said he hasn’t talked to Taylor since the trade, but said he had a telephone discussion with Saunders that gave both some closure, and he predicted he’d give Saunders, now the Wolves’ coach as well, a “big hug” and “we’ll be talking and laughing” and discussing where they’ll have lunch when Cleveland makes its only Target Center appearance this season Jan. 31.

Taylor's Wolves haven't been to the playoffs in 10 seasons. This is expected to be No. 11 in a row. "This year, knowing that I have (coach Flip Saunders), knowing we have some really good resources, I just understand we're going to go through part of our growing process," Taylor said. "For some reason, I'm more accepting of it. I haven't found myself feeling terribly sad or terribly uncomfortable. I'm more patient." St. Paul Pioneer Press

"This has been a long process and I am thrilled that we have reached an agreement," said Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor. "We drafted Ricky over three years ago and had to wait two years for him to come over. He came to us with such high expectations and he immediately proved why we were so high on him. Unfortunately he got hurt at the end of his rookie season, but he has worked so hard to come back and we believe he has a long and successful career ahead of him. He's a great foundation for our franchise and we're very happy to keep Ricky here long term to work and grow with the young nucleus that we have." NBA.com

A day after Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor questioned if going to the Cavaliers was the best decision for Kevin Love, Love told ESPN’s Mike and Mike that he thinks Taylor should be focused on his own team. “I think emotions are definitely running high right now. For Glen to say that, I just think that he should be focusing on the players that he just received,” he said. “I mean, he has two of the No. 1 picks in the last two drafts: Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett. He has another guy who can really play in Thaddeus Young. For The Win

Kevin Love: “I think he got a lot for me. So I’d be focusing even more on that. More than anything, I’m just excited to start my time in Cleveland, get to work with my new teammates, and start with this new family here.” For The Win
