Kevin Love Quits Team USA
With an uncertain NBA future, the Minnesota Timberwolves‘ Kevin Love has withdrawn from Team USA ahead of Monday’s start to training camp. It’s believed that Love took himself off the roster to avoid injury — something that would devastate any potential upcoming trade moves.
The Timberwolves are considering dealing Love, possibly to Cleveland. Love was part of the U.S. gold medal teams at the 2010 World Championships and the 2012 Summer Olympics.
The 2014 World Championships will take place August 30 through September 14 in Spain.
