Kevin Love wants Timberwolves roster changesPosted by Inside Hoops
The Wolves could add Love’s new $13 million salary and still clear more than $12 million for free agency if they let go Beasley, Randolph, Milicic, Webster and retiring Brad Miller. But they still would have to fill out those roster spots, and as many as six NBA teams could have $20 million or more to spend this summer when the Wolves’ best options are difficult-to-sign restricted free agents — O.J. Mayo, Eric Gordon, Nicolas Batum — or perhaps overpaying unrestricted free agents Ray Allen or Landry Fields.
More likely is a trade for a player such as Kevin Martin, who played for Adelman twice and whose $13 million salary Houston wants to shed.
Love said he will lobby management to be “aggressive” in adding veterans. “I think we just need to make some moves,” he said.
Adelman said he believes the team’s young, vibrant nucleus will attract free agents.
“When you look at Kevin and you look at Ricky and the style that we’re going to play, it’s going to be good,” Adelman said.
