Kevin Love signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2018 offseason and has since been mentioned in trade rumors as the franchise rebuilds.
“I know there’s talk about me possibly being the missing piece somewhere,” Love said. “There’s been constant chatter since I signed that I could be traded. It’s one of those things where I’m going to keep doing right by the team, by Cleveland and by the organization. If my number is called, so be it, but I’m going to stay true to my commitment and let the chips fall where they may.”
Love ties trade rumors to his well-documented mental health struggles.
“A big aspect of mental health is just staying in the present but it’s so hard,” he said. “You have to try to not get too far ahead of yourself or get worked up. You can get that anxious feeling or fear for the future, but you have to try to stay focused on getting better and let things work out the way they should.”
Love is signed with the Cavaliers through the 22-23 season.
