Kevin Love Opts Out Of Contract With Cavs, Chooses Free Agency

Kevin Love opts out of contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers

In a move that was expected to take place, Kevin Love has opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Love spent just one season with the Cavaliers after being acquired in a trade last offseason, which saw the T-Wolves receive 2014-15 NBA Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins and the Cavs’ 2016 first-round pick in return.

The all-star power forward endured plenty of scrutiny throughout the course of the regular season, as he averaged nearly 10 points and 3 rebounds less than his 2013-14 season averages.  And in his first ever trip to the NBA postseason, he lasted just four games before dislocating his left shoulder during the Cavs’ first-round match-up against the Boston Celtics.

Now Love will be free to go wherever he pleases.  And while the Cavaliers are still expected to make a run at him, he’s also expected to garner interest from the Lakers, Celtics, and Trail Blazers, among others.

Where will he end up?  Only time will tell.

Stay tuned.
