It’s no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers would like to trade forward Kevin Love, but the five-time All-Star reportedly has not requested a trade.
According to Hoops Wire’s Sam Amico, Love is not expected to make any trade requests in the near future. Love, 32, has two years and $60 million left on his contract.
“Sources told Hoops Wire last week that the Cavs intend to try to trade Love this offseason, and that he too would like to find a new place to play. That said, no trade request has been made by Love and sources contacted by Hoops Wire don’t believe one is forthcoming,” Amico wrote.
In the 25 games that he did play in the past season, Love averaged 12.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while shooting 40.9 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from 3.
The Cavaliers most certainly will look to offload Love’s contract this year as they are in full rebuild mode with the young core of Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen and Isaac Okoro.
