Kevin Love will sign off on a trade that he likes. Is Boston a place that he wants? The Celtics won't bite if he doesn't agree to an extension. What it could come down to is this. The Lakers have nothing to offer, except their lottery pick this year. The Celtics have young guys,and future picks, along with this years lottery pick. I think when it comes to having a good chance at Love, the Celtics must get the better pick over the Lakers. If the Lakers get it, they could have the edge, even if Boston has more to offer.

...the Wolves are under pressure to start considering trade scenarios for Love, who's anxious to exercise his early termination option (ETO) in the summer of 2015 and leave as a free agent, league sources said.
"For the first time, [team president Flip Saunders] sounds like looking at deals for [Kevin Love] is an option," one rival executive told Yahoo Sports.
The Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns are among many teams determined to make hard runs at trades for Love, league sources said. Boston and Los Angeles plan to make high-lottery picks in the 2014 NBA draft available in offers for Love, sources said.
