Forward Kevin Love has been an absolute beast for the Minnesota Timberwolves in his three-plus seasons and he's about to potentially cash in. According to Pro Basketball Talk (via 1500ESPN.com), the Timberwolves are going to offer Love the maximum extension to keep him in a T-Wolves uniform:

One team source said he would be "shocked" if a maximum contract offer to Love isnt made by the 11 p.m. deadline on Jan. 25.

Matt Moore at PBT thinks Love, closing out his rookie deal this season, will take the offer because "that's what you do" and "it's fun to play in Minnesota" with the additions of rookie point guard Ricky Rubio and head coach Rick Adelman.

Kevin Love spoke with 1500ESPN.com and this is what he had to say about a possible maximum extension offer from the Timberwolves:

It's all in my agent's hands. I just don't know what I am going to do. I'm happy to be a Timberwolf at this point and happy we're winning games.

Kevin Love set the NBA's double-double record last season with 53 consecutive, passing Moses Malone's 51. He averaged 20.2 points and an NBA best 15.2 rebounds per game. He is averaging 26.1 points and 14.9 rebounds through seven games this season.
