Kevin Love off of team USA this summer

MINNEAPOLIS – Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love will not play for Team USA this summer.

The team begins training Monday for the FIBA World Cup.

“The fact is we can only look to the players we have available,” Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo said in a statement. “Our job is to get the job done with our very, very deep roster, and we’re anxious to get things started.”

Love’s absence is attributed to the ongoing trade saga involving the Timberwolves, according to the Associated Press.
