Is Kevin Love Poised For A Breakout Year?

It’s no secret that Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love isn’t quite sure what’s in store for his franchise’s future.

But one NBA scout tells the Sporting News that Love’s personal future is very bright, ranking him as one of five young NBA players who are poised for a breakout season.

He has gotten better as a rebounder, and he is one of the more versatile power forwards out there. He can shoot it from medium and long range, and he is a tough matchup. He has to get better defensively—if he had been healthy all of last year, he would have made some natural improvements.

For everything Minnesota Timberwolves, head over to SB Nation’s Canis Hoopus.
