Kevin Love met up with Rondo: Could this lead to Kevin Love being a Celtic?

Kevin Love's weekend visit to Boston just keeps getting more interesting for Celtics fans.
The Minnesota Timberwolves forward, who has been linked to the Celtics in trade rumors, took in the sights and sounds of Beantown in a mini-vacation that took him to some of the hot spots around town. On Sunday, his tour of the city continued as he was spotted at the Tampa Bay Rays-Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park, but it was who he was spotted with that will be of special interest to fans.
During the Red Sox's 4-0 win, Love met up with Celtics star Rajon Rondo, and according to the Boston Globe's Baxter Holmes, Love attended the game with his agent.
The trade rumors surrounding Love have been heating up since reports came out last month saying he wanted out of Minnesota and would be testing free agency this summer. While a number of teams are said to have interest in acquiring the 25-year-old, it's hard for Celtics fans not to get their hopes up about the possibilities of a Love-Rondo combination on the court when pictures of the two of them pop up.
It didn’t take long for news to travel that Love was in the ballpark, and Red Sox slugger David Ortiz definitely took notice.
Big Papi knows a thing or two about coming to Boston from Minnesota and participating in a few duck boat parades, so he gave Love a pretty solid pitch.
That’s right, it appears Boston has brought in the big guns.
Only time will tell if Love, who has said he’s “open” to playing for Boston, will take Ortiz up on his offer. But the last time a Timberwolves star — Kevin Garnett — moved to Boston, it worked out pretty well for both sides.
