A five-time NBA All-Star has reportedly been put on the trading block as we head into 2020, according to a new report by ESPN.
Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers are ready to start listening to offers for All-Star forward Kevin Love.
Love, 31, would be a significant addition for several contending teams. NBA trade possibilities expand on Dec. 15, when players who signed contracts over the summer are able to be moved.
The Cavs are reportedly open to moving Love before the trade deadline.
Cleveland is open to the idea of moving Love before the Feb. 7 trade deadline should the Cavaliers find a requisite package of young assets and/or future draft picks, league sources said.
Love is an intriguing target for franchises in both conferences, especially in a season in which so many teams believe a key addition could catapult them into championship contention.
Love has three years and $90 million left on his contract. He’s averaging 16.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game this season.
Cleveland isn’t expected to contend anytime soon.
The Cavs are 5-16 on the season, coming off a loss to Orlando.
