The Cleveland Cavaliers and Kevin Love would like to part ways with a trade
"(Love) absolutely, totally wants to get out of there," said Brian Windhorst on his podcast. "It has driven him various levels of crazy to be there this season, but there's not that much traction for a trade as far I can tell... That is a bit of a mess to say the least."
Windhorst and Kevin Arnovitz then discussed the trade value of Love, which is impacted by the Cavaliers owing him $91 million over the next three seasons.
"I think there's teams that would do it," said Windhorst. "One of the things that's been remarkable to me as I've talked to some people around the league about Kevin in the last 48-72 hours is there's a lot of people who really, really value him and really like him, but the problem is because of the contract, it's a difficult to come up with a trade for. Because the Cavs are viewing trading an All-Star level player. The other teams are saying 'Yeah, he's a good player but we're taking on this money.' They think they're bailing the Cavs out."
