Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love has no interest in a buyout, his agent told ESPN. Love is under contract for two more seasons, through 2022-23 and is owed over $60.2 million.
The Cavs acquired Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2014. Love helped Cleveland to win the 2016 NBA Finals. Since that point, Love has struggled to stay healthy. He’s only appeared in as many as 60 games once in the past five seasons.
This offseason, Cleveland re-signed Jarrett Allen, drafted Evan Mobley and acquired Lauri Markkanen via sign-and-trade. The logjam led to speculation that Love would want a buyout. Doing so would allow the veteran big man to join a title contender.
