Kevin Love Not Interest in Buyout, Looking to Play Out Contract in Cleveland

Despite earlier reports, Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love has no interest in a buyout.

The report has been confirmed by Love’s agent.

The former All-Star is currently under contract through the 2022-23 season and is owed over $60.2 million. Hampered by injuries, attitude issues, and a sharp decline in performance over the past couple of seasons, the Cavaliers are looking towards the future and Love very clearly does not fit their timeline.

Earlier in the Summer, the Cavs drafted big man Evan Mobley, have re-signed Jarrett Allen, and acquired Lauri Markkanen via sign-and-trade, creating a log-jam in the team’s front court. Love, who has only appeared in 60 games once in the past five seasons appears to be the odd man out in the equation. While the Cavaliers will continue to look for a way to move on from the former NBA champion, it seems very unlikely that Love will receive significant minutes on a young and rebuilding team.

If the Cavaliers are to cut ties with Love prior to the start of next season, the Los Angeles Lakers are one team that has been linked with the aging big man.

It is unclear whether Love is willing to take on a mentorship role on what will be a very young Cavaliers team.
