Cavaliers Haven’t Yet Discussed Kevin Love Buyout

Over the past few seasons, things have gotten interesting with Kevin Love in Cleveland. Being someone that always seems to be on the trade block but never moved, Love just doesn’t fit the timeline of the Cavaliers. 

Turning 33 years old next week, he also can’t stay healthy, appearing in just 103 games combined over the past three NBA seasons.

According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, buyout discussions haven’t occurred to this point in the offseason. Rather, Cleveland has already spoken to Kevin Love about his role and minutes moving forward, which could include coming off of the bench considering the young core the team has built out. 

Love hasn’t made an All-Star team since the 2017-18 season and is coming off of the worst year of his career. Last season, he averaged just 12.2 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. 

As the offseason continues, the Love situation could change, but for now it appears he will be part of the team’s plans for the 2021-22 season.
