TWolves To Offer $70M Extension To Kevin Love?

As he quickly closes in on Moses Malone’s record of 51-straight double doubles, Kevin Love may soon reap a very healthy reward, according to a little birdie: “Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love can look forward to a contract extension offer of six years in the $70 million range once a new NBA labor deal is reached, a little birdie says. The NBA’s collective bargaining agreement expires June 30. Love, 22, can become a restricted free agent after the 2012-2013 season. The Wolves have no intention of letting him get that far.”
