“Yeah, I’ll be happy if I’m still here,” Love said. “I fully plan to continue to help these guys. With Tristan [Thompson], myself and Larry [Nance Jr.] and these guys, being a leader. This place — Cleveland, the fans have been really, really good to me. So yes.”
The Cavs have had trouble consummating a Love trade, mostly because of his huge contract (he’s in the first year of a four-year, $120 million extension) and his injury history.
Still, Love has significant value to offer suitors, thanks to averages of 17.3 points and 10.1 rebounds a game this season.
It’s been another rough season for Cleveland, as it continues to rebuild following the second departure of LeBron James two summers ago.
After showing a bit of spark by winning five of eight games in late December, it’s dropped six in a row and 11 of its last 13.
Getting a good haul for Love would go a long way in helping the Cavs’ rebuilding process, as well as give them more clarity for the next few years.
