ricky rubio kevin love timberwolves 2014

Kevin Love has informed that he does not want to sign a contract extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves at this moment, and instead will test the 2015 NBA free agency market. Other reports out there have said he would want a trade. His teammates have responded about this latest news and point guard Ricky Rubio became the first to speak out.

Rubio, while admitting that Love is the leader stats wise on the team, says the All-Star power forward may not have what it takes to be the overall team leader.

"He is a special player, his numbers are unbelievable but maybe our leader must be other player. He is our leader in points and another things but he can’t be or he doesn’t want to be our 'voice' leader," Rubio said, per Basket Americano. "Many kind of leaders. Perhaps he shouldn’t have been our leader, perhaps Kevin Martin could have been our leader because he had more experience, perhaps I could take a step ahead to be the definitive leader."

It's going to be an interesting offseason in Minnesota.
