Kevin Love and Cavs Agreeing on Contract Buyout: Report

16 February 2023, Thursday
The Cleveland Cavaliers and All-Star Power Forward Kevin Love could be on the brink of parting ways, according to a report by The Athletic. The two sides are reportedly finalizing a contract buyout agreement, which could set the stage for Love to join another team. The Miami Heat, currently seeded seventh in the Eastern Conference, could be the favorite to acquire the five-time All-Star if the buyout is successful.

Jarrett Allen is making a statement with his impressive display of offense as the Cleveland Cavaliers have enjoyed a six-game winning streak.

The Cavs' only remaining member of their 2016 championship team is Kevin Love. Love, who has been part of the Cavs organization for nine seasons, was an All-Star in 2017 and 2018.

The Spurs' Malaki Branham, a graduate of St. Vincent-St. Mary high school, is having a strong month and his homecoming against the Cavs is part of this upward trend.

This year, Love has appeared in 15 NBA seasons, but his average minutes-per-game total has never been lower than in the current season, clocking in at only 20 minutes. Two weeks ago, he fell out of rotation entirely.

Though speculation suggested that a buyout between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the power forward was on the cards, Cavaliers President of Basketball Operations Koby Altman recently spoke out to deny this, and the team has now finalized the signing of Danny Green. Prior to the addition of Green, Love was part of the 9-man rotation being used by head coach J.B. Bickerstaff.

Love is the fourth and final year of the $120 million, four-year extension he signed shortly after James departed for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018.
