MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Kevin Love will not be participating in the celebrity softball game that’s part of All-Star weekend at Target Field, according to a news release sent by the Twins on Wednesday.

The rumor mill churned, the NBA Draft came and went, the free-agency period began, and still, the Timberwolves forward remains on the roster, but he’s not listed as a participant in the game like several other notable Minnesota athletes including Wild left winger Zach Parise, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Lynx forward Maya Moore.

According to a Twitter message sent by Twins president Dave St. Peter, Love dropped out of the game due to a conflict and the Twins and the league were notified this week, the Star Tribune reported.

Love has announced his intention to opt out of his contract with the Timberwolves and become an unrestricted free agent after next season, and has been the subject of trade rumors for several months.

The celebrity game will be played on July 13.
