Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love has agreed to a four-year, $62 million contract extension and is expected to sign the new deal Wednesday afternoon in Dallas, a person close to the situation told the Pioneer Press.
Love, 23, and the Wolves are in Dallas to play the defending NBA champion Mavericks on Wednesday night.
Love, who is earning $4.6 million this season, needs to sign an extension before 11 p.m. Wednesday, or he will become a restricted free agent after the season.
Love, the No. 5 overall pick in 2008, is averaging 24.9 points and 13.9 rebounds and leads the league with 16 double-doubles. He was voted the NBA's most improved player last season and is one of 20 finalists for USA Basketball's 2012 Olympics team.
