Cleveland Cavaliers Ready to Listen to Offers for All-Star Kevin Love
Kevin Love’s time in Cleveland may be coming to an end.
That is if some team is willing to take on the last $90-million that he is owed over the next three seasons.
As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue to sputter, dropping to 5-17 on the season, they have began listening to trade offers for the former All-Star forward. December 15 represents the date when players who signed new contracts over the offseason become eligible to be traded.
The 31-year old Love has drawn interest from teams such as the Portland Trailblazers and the Phoenix Suns. Through 18 games this season, he has averaged 16.1 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.
The Cavaliers are looking to jumpstart a full rebuild by gathering young players and draft picks to piece around Colin Sexton and 2019 lottery pick Darius Garland. The Cavs have a number of expiring contracts that could turn into potential trade chips as the trade deadline approaches. Tristan Thompson, Jordan Clarkson, and John Henson are all free agents following this season.
Just three years following a championship victory, the Cavs are ready to inject young blood into its organization.
