Kevin Love is pulling out of Team USA because of uncertainty surrounding his status with the Timberwolves.
With Wolves actively shopping him around and so many teams interested and gearing up to pay a steep price, it makes perfect sense that he not play for Team USA and risk injury. Love wants out of Minnesota, so he's not going to do anything to jeopardize a trade going through. He's still going to have to wait a month until the Cavs can trade Andrew Wiggins, but he'll find something else to do in the meantime.
