Timberwolves coach and GM Flip Saunders says he believes Minnesota fans will not forgive Kevin Love for asking to be traded away.
Asked Flip if he thinks fans will forgive Love: "no. Minnesota people are pretty loyal. When you turn on MN they don't forgive you."— Jon Krawczynski (@JonKrawczynski) December 22, 2014
Love, who played six seasons in Minnesota, will play his first game against his former team on Wednesday in Cleveland. Love was acquired by the Cavaliers in a three-team trade prior to the start of this season.
Love averaged 19.2 points and 12.2 rebounds per game during his tenure with the Timberwolves. He is the franchise's all-time leader in rebounds per game.
Love's first game in Minnesota since being traded will be on Jan. 31.
