Source: Kevin Love Likes Idea Of Playing In LA, New York, Chicago

Kevin Love can become a free agent in 2015 and appears one of the more likely players to move teams even though he has downplayed the possibility of leaving the Minnesota Timberwolves.

“You know, my parents live there and they had me there,” Love said of Los Angeles. “It’s not my fault. So, I don’t really care about that right now. I just go out there and play and don’t think about it.” 

A sources familiar with Love's thinking says he's enamored with the idea of being “big time in a big city,” and that list of potential places he’d seek includes Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

Both the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers are projected to have max cap space in 2015, while the Chicago Bulls could have enough assets to acquire Love via trade.

LeBron: 10-Year, $300M Contract Would Be Nice

LeBron James was understandably impressed by the 10-year, $292 million contract signed by Miguel Cabrera with the Detroit Tigers.

James will earn $19 million this season with the Miami Heat, tied with Chris Bosh for the ninth-highest salary in the NBA.

"I said 'wow,' " James said. "I wish we (the NBA) didn't have a salary cap."

James would undoubtedly make at least three times his salary if there wasn't a salary cap, as playing below his actual value helps support the NBA's middle class of players.

"He's the best player in baseball, and the best players in each sport should be rewarded," James said. "It'd be nice to sign a 10-year deal worth $300 million."

James hasn't decided if he'll opt out of his contract yet, but he did say he would if he could sign that type of deal.

"I would do it this summer for sure," James said with a smile. "I'd opt out for that."
