Now that the most notable free agents have been signed, the focus of the NBA's offseason speculation will shift to Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love and the trade rumors surrounding him.

Here are five teams that may still have interest in acquiring Love.

Love's trip to Boston earlier this summer fueled speculation about a trade involving the Celtics, or Boston's potential as a landing spot for him as a free agent next summer. A third team may have to get involved to make a trade work, but the Celtics still deserve a spot on this list.

After not being able to sign Chris Bosh or Carmelo Anthony and deciding not to match the offer sheet Chandler Parsons got from Dallas, the Rockets may now re-enter the trade market for Love. The primary concerns would be if Houston has enough to get a trade done by itself, and if the Timberwolves have any interest in said assets.

The Suns can offer a combination of players (Goran Dragic? Eric Bledsoe? Marcus Morris?) and picks, which may be enough to engage Flip Saunders in trade talks sometime in the near future.

2. Golden State Warriors

The Timberwolves want guard Klay Thompson, and as of now Golden State does not want to part with him. Things may change at some point if multiple teams make competitive trade offers, and the Warriors can offer the best package of proven players in a deal for Love.

The Cavaliers' refusal to include No.1 pick Andrew Wiggins in a trade for Love is a significant road block right now, but with LeBron James back in the fold adding another proven player has to be on their radar.
