The Cleveland Cavaliers want to keep Kevin Love to the roster for another season, per Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.

The Cavs believe Love is a great veteran to have in the locker room for young guys, such as Collin Sexton and Darius Garland.

“While his name remains at the center of trade rumors, the Cavs still want Kevin Love around, believing he can be a positive influence during this rebuild. And despite two rough years, the Cavs still view him as their best — and most impactful — player.

The league sees him in a different way — an often-injured 31-year-old forward with a bloated contract whose best basketball is in the past and may become unhappy in certain situations.

The trade offers have reflected that. Until his value, league-wide and internally, more closely aligns, it’s hard to see a trade,” Fedor reports.
