Change is not easy, not for a team that hasn't had a winning record since 2004-05, not when a million other moves have yielded poor results and bad luck has abounded. But change shouldn't be so scary. It shouldn't be so stubborn. Maybe holding on to Love is the right move. Maybe he'll stay. Problem is, the Timberwolves need to be prepared for maybe not, and picking up the pieces will be far easier if there are actual pieces to pick up.
