Kevin Love told the Minnesota Timberwolves that he won't sign extension and went on to publicly announce that he likes the make-up of the Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors.
This should make it interesting as Love has put the Timberwolves in an awkward position, essentially forcing them into potentially having to trade their best player over the summer and forcing the rebuild a year early. This should make for an interesting soap opera in the NBA now so stay tuned for more. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
