Kevin Love did not confirm that he will opt out of his contract to become a free agent in 2015, but the Minnesota Timberwolves' forward discussed speculation about a potential trade.
"My agent is handling everything at this point ... I'm hoping that everything works out for all parties involved," Love said on Wednesday.
"No matter what the outcome is, I just want to end up in a great place where I can win. At the end of the day, I've played six years, haven't made the playoffs yet, that burns me and hurts my heart, so I really want to be playing."
Flip Saunders said last week that Love "didn't have a right" to be frustrated.
"Flip's a great guy," Love said. "He was great for us last year when [Rick] Adelman was the coach, bringing us all together. It was his first time back with the team, and now he's taking over the coaching reins, and I congratulated him, talking with him, back and forth, and when he says something like that, same as when Ricky talked about me being a leader, I just continue to work hard, keep on the grind, and use some of it as fuel ... but what they said, it holds true, some of it."
The New York Knicks are believed to be interested in Love.
"I think any time you have Phil Jackson involved in any organization, you're going to definitely look at it and it's definitely intriguing," Love said. "The Knicks are definitely a place where anybody would like to go."
When asked whether he can be the best player on a championship team, Love said, "I think so."
