Cleveland Cavaliers have no interest in trading Kevin Love

  • Cleveland Cavaliers have no interest in trading Kevin Love

The 33-year-old can decide where he plays next and that has Cavs fans (and much of the NBA) on the edge of their seats waiting for LeBron's next move.

When James last faced a similar opt out in his contract, he fled Miami to return to Cleveland, and informed Heat president Pat Riley before the draft of his decision.

Ideally, the Cavs would know LeBron's plans before entering a critically important draft. James and his representatives have kept an air-tight lid on their plans.

According to a report by Cleveland Sports Talk, sources are revealing that LeBron James will only consider playing for two teams next season, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the L.A. Lakers.

ESPNs Brian Windhorst said the other day that James is “looking for reasons” to stay in the state of his birth and prefers to give the City of Cleveland another National Basketball Association championship.

It's also possible that James hasn't made up his mind.


"Somebody told me a long time ago - they said your book is already set [before the later stages of your career]". "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode". A team like the Rockets with a James Harden could be one, but until James makes a decision, it's all speculation for now. Or should they package the pick in a trade to land a star player in the hopes of convincing James to stay - without any guarantee he'll do so? He succeeded in getting to his eighth straight Finals, but was then overmatched by the deeper Warriors.

The NBA Draft analyst also noted that Kentucky guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Oklahoma guard Trae Young have picked up momentum when it comes to the Cavs' pick. The last time the Cavs had a draft pick was 2015. In the postseason, James averaged a tremendous stat line of 34.0 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 9.0 assists per game, as a ball-dominant point-forward who spent most of the time on the court either setting his teammates up for scoring chances or creating buckets himself.

That year, the Cavs selected Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 pick.

Free agency begins on July 1, so keep checking back to see where the top players have signed.

He's been quiet, but there's no doubt he's watching.
