Kevin Love isn’t looking to leave Cleveland

Would there be reason for Kevin Love to exercise his player option and leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign elsewhere after this season? Love says don’t count on it.

Even though Love could have signed a two-year extension with Cleveland by now, he hasn’t, but if he waits and declines his player option after the season he can sign a multi-year deal for a lot more money. That seems to be his priority, as he told “Mike and Mike” on the radio this morning,

“If I could end all the speculation now, I would. But people are going to continue to talk no matter what. I just want to continue getting better with this team long term. I’m a Cleveland Cavalier.”

Somehow speculation does keep swirling that Love would be willing to sign elsewhere, mainly the Los Angeles Lakers, but he continues to deny such rumors. Kevin Love’s situation in Cleveland hasn’t gotten off to the greatest start, but the Cavaliers have won their last four games and are still far away from the best version of themselves. For Love to abandon this opportunity, even if Cleveland doesn’t put it all together this season, would be premature and foolish.

But coming from Love himself, he’s a Cleveland Cavalier.
