Kevin Love to the Celtics has been the talk of the town all offseason thus far.

A. Sherrod Blakely, Kyle Draper, and Jimmy Toscano predict whether or not the Celtics will acquire Minnesota's forward.

Toscano believes Love will end up in Green.

"Why would he come to Boston and hang out all day?" said Toscano. "It's still early in the season to be traveling to Boston, usually people wait for the warmer weather. I think the Celtics are obviously interested in a player of his caliber. I think they have the pieces."

Blakely disagrees.

"This is the thing we have to keep in mind when we're talking about Kevin Love, it's not his choice where he goes." said Blakely. "He will have say, but ultimately Flip Saunders is going to do what he feels is best for the Minnesota Timberwolves organization.

"Boston has picks, that's pretty much it. If you're rebuilding, that's the way to go, but I don't know if Flip Saunders is necessarily in the mindset that 'we're going to just scorch the earth and start over."

Draper wonders if the Celtics have the pieces the Timberwolves are looking for.

"While the Celtics have the draft picks, there's a report out there that Minnesota is really not enamored with the players." said Draper. "Sullinger is a nice player, but is he a championship caliber player, a starter, for years to come? I don't know."
