Timberwolves Dreaming of Gay/Love?

Sorry. I had to do it.

In what could be a strange twist of fate, Rudy Gay and Kevin Love could be teammates again this summer, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. The two were both Grizzlies for all of four hours in 2008 before Love-the 5th pick in that year’s draft-was swapped for O.J. Mayo. Now that he is a restricted free agent,  the Minnesota Timberwolves have not been not been shy about their affinity for Gay. (Damnit, I did it again, didn’t I?)

The likes of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Amare Stoudemire will soak up most of the big money. On the second tier, Gay will be highly coveted.

One team that will make a strong run at Gay is the Minnesota Timberwolves. Team owner Glen Taylor and president of basketball operations David Kahn have already targeted Gay as an attainable player to uplift the struggling franchise.

Griz owner Michael Heisley continues to insist that Gay will be a Grizzly next season. Memphis (namely Heisley) has the right to match any offer sheet that is presented to Gay from another team.

There are countless reasons why this needs to happen. Then there’s the fact that Gay could actually help the Wolves.

    When it comes to getting Gay it comes down to 3 options: he’ll stay in Memphis if they do what the say: match whatever another teams is willing to pay him. He’ll go to Minnesota (draft day swap?) or he’ll go the Nets.

    Don’t forget Ramon Sessions. That Gay-Love-Sessions lineup is going to be so sick, parents should take their kids out of the room.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Cheryl

    you can tell the season is winding down. this one sounds like ‘we got nothing to talk about’ offseason chatter.

  • Jumper

    I’m laughing at everybody’s comments….except Mike C, you sir, are a sense of humor failure.

  • rich

    rudy will really help that team with scoring and perimeter shooting. i know his percentage isnt great but if he has ppl that arent hogs lik zbo and OJ things will be better. trade al jefferson or love( who cares? 1 is a poor mans mchale the other is a rich mans glen davis) for a banging center.

    penetration, banging inside, that would make gay love sessions intense

  • Hussman25

    This headline is priceless… It made me chuckle…

  • andynorstrom

    MikeC go buy a wrench and smash your computer into dust, you are a disappointment to the human race

  • MikeC.

    That’s the last time I try to integrate a late 80′s rap lyric into a joke about Gay Love Sessions.

  • MikeC.

    @andynorstrom – I respectfully decline.

  • JD

    Great Headline lol

  • zabba

    MikeC, die slowly.

  • http://www.threadsandkicks.com.au Eduardo

    If LeBron can’t entice Wade to go to Cleveland, as Joe Johnson would probably want to get a max contract since he’s more about the dollars Rudy Gay wouldn’t be a bad fit for the cavs as a shooting guard. Cav’s need to pick up the guards.

    Funny title though! Be pretty embarrassing for the franchise when they make good plays to each other. “Gay to Love to the Ring”!!!

  • Buppie

    …..oh GROW UP!
