After the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday, Cavs star Kevin Love gave everybody on the team a chest bump. Well, everyone except for rookie Kevin Porter Jr:

The Cavs are 8-21 on the season. They are in the 13th spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
Love is averaging 16.1 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists on the season for the Cavs. He’s shooting 44.2 percent from the field, 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 84.6 percent from the free-throw line.
Love is clearly in good spirits despite the Cavs being bad and his name being in trade rumors again. Love is once again being brought up in trade rumors, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported a few weeks ago that the Cavs are “expressing a willingness to listen to offers” for the All-Star big man.
In the second season of the post-LeBron James era, Cleveland is looking to build its franchise around youngsters Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Porter Jr. and Cedi Osman.
A bevy of contenders would love to acquire Love. He has career averages of 18.2 points and 11.2 rebounds with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cavs and is a walking double-double. We’ll see if Love gets traded, but for now, Kevin is enjoying himself with his younger teammates.
