Ever since Kevin Love became a free agent, he has become the target of many teams. Since entering the league six years ago from UCLA, Kevin Love has become one of the premier big men in the NBA. Love can score, rebound, defend, and do just about anything a quality center can do and more. Last season, Love averaged 26.1 PPG, 12.5 RPG, and 4.4 APG. His stats last season show just how versatile and skilled of a player he is and why so many teams would love to have them on their team. Over his six year career, Love has averaged a double double, 19.2 PPG, 12.2 RPG, and 2.5 APG.

The main issue that Kevin Love has with the Minnesota Timberwolves is that he is tired of losing and wants to go to a place where he feels like there is potential to win. According to Sports Nation, ESPN, Kevin Love stated:

“No matter what the outcome is, I just want to end up in a great place where I can win. At the end of the day, I’ve played six years, haven’t made the playoffs yet, that burns me and hurts my heart, so I really want to be playing.”

{adinserter 2} With the recent return of LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cavs look to be a serious contender in acquiring Love. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, Kevin Love is ‘intrigued’ by the possibility of joining the Cleveland Cavaliers as reported before and would be willing to commit long term.

While the interest seems to be there on both sides, the Cleveland Cavaliers will need to make some serious moves in order to acquire Kevin Love. However, if the Cavs are able to acquire Kevin Love, Cavs Nation will become a deep threat in the East.
