Ricky Rubio has heard all of the media hype surrounding Kevin Love’s murky future with the Timberwolves, but he wants to hear the truth from the man himself. From NBA.com:

‘Of course I want him to stay.’


Are you going to tell him?


‘Yeah,’ Rubio said. ‘I don’t want to convince him if he doesn’t want to stay. But I want him to stay and I’m going to tell him what I think, which is we’ve been improving every year and he’s a great player, he helps us a lot. I think we need to make the next step. … The media says it’s pretty settled, but I don’t know what he thinks. What I’ve been hearing is from the media, not from him, so I don’t trust that. It can be an opinion from you guys. I just really want to talk to him as a teammate.’
