Kevin Love has played incredibly well for the Minnesota Timberwolves so far this season after getting steadily better every year he played in the league, and the Timberwolves look like they're ready to reward Love for his hard work with a large contract.
Love is currently making only $4.6 million this year, making him the fifth highest paid member of the Wolves. A report says that the Wolves will likely be offering him a $60 million, four year long contract at some point in the next week. With Love eligible for free agency in the next few years, it could a smart move by the Wolves if true.
Love began the 2012 season with a ludicrous 13 straight games with double doubles and is averaging high numbers in just about every category. If this is indeed the contract that the Timberwolves are going to offer their forward, it's hard to say that it wasn't very well deserved.
