The Cavs Have Reportedly Changed Their Minds On Kevin Love

A general view of the Cleveland cavaliers basketball court.

The Cavs have, according to multiple reports, maintained that they intend on keeping Kevin Love despite the franchise losing LeBron James to the Lakers. This seems odd, considering that Cleveland is not likely to be a playoff team moving forward. Love is a player that could fetch a future asset or two from a contending franchise.

New reports suggest the Cavs have either changed their minds about Love's future or weren't being truthful from the beginning.

Sam Amico is reporting that the Cavs will look to see what they can get for the All-Star forward.

Amico is not the only one reporting this. Jason Lloyd of The Athletic is also reporting that Love is a player who could be dealt.

Love, 29, has said that he enjoys Cleveland and would like to be a member of the Cavs moving forward, but he also understands that this is a business.

"I like to be here. I've always said that. Always wanted to win here," Love told television station WKYC in Cleveland at the end of the 2017-18 season. "Obviously, I'd love to play with LeBron the rest of my career, but that will be a choice that he makes."

The five-time NBA All-Star would not be surprised if he's not on the Cavs next season. There are several teams - from the Blazers to the Wizards to the Hornets, among others - that could put together a promising package to the Cavs for Love.
