No matter what LeBron James ends up doing with the next step of his career, Kevin Love has stated he'd like to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers and ideally alongside James.

 

The perennial All-Star sidestepped trade rumors when asked Saturday during an interview with station WKYC.

 

"People have been saying that for the past four years," Love said. "I knew that question would come, but I like to be here. I've always said that. Always wanted to win here."

Obviously, I'd love to play with LeBron the rest of my career, but that will be a choice that he makes.

Should James part aways with the Cavaliers, the prevailing thought is that Love would be traded away.

 

"[Cleveland would] fully make Kevin Love available," Windhorst said. "I bet they would look for a first-round pick in that trade. He's on the last year of a deal, so they don't want to take on money."

 

Per Spotrac, Love is owed $24 million next season and holds a player option for 2019-20 worth about $25.5 million.
