If Kevin Love becomes available in free agency -- and it sounds like there a chance he does -- then our Town Fair Tire Sports Tonight crew thinks that the Celtics should pursue him.
CSN NBA Analyst Tim Welsh said that he would "absolutely" take Kevin Love.
"He fits in as a guy that can score, an up-front scorer. They (the Celtics) don't have that. They're built on guys, a lot of wing players ... they've got the two tough guards out front with (Avery) Bradley and (Marcus) Smart that can really defend," Welsh said. "And I think the thing with Kevin Love, too -- and other free agent will obviously look at -- is what Brad Stevens has done. He's kind of resurrected a lot of different guys here in a short period of time."
Welsh cited players like Evan Turner, Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko, who have all found success in Boston. Stevens knows how to put players in a position to excel offensively, and he could be the perfect coach to give Love's career new life.
"I think that's Brad Stevens' brilliance as a offensive mind, putting guys in the right spots that they really can take advantage of what their strengths are on the basketball court," Welsh said. "I think that's what Kevin Love needs. You see him in Cleveland and he's really not in the right spots."
