Reports: Kevin Love likely to re-sign with Cavaliers
Monday June 29th, 2015

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is likely to re-sign with the team, according to multiple reports.

Sam Amico of Fox Sports reported that Love has indicated to the Cavaliers that he plans to return, and ESPN's Brian Windhorst cited sources who indicated Love will likely remain in Cleveland.

The Cavaliers plan to extend Love a five-year maximum contract worth at least $110 million, according to Windhorst.

Cleveland acquired Love in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves last summer. 

Over 75 games last season, Love averaged 16.4 points and 9.7 rebounds while shooting 43.4 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three-point range as Cleveland posted a 53–29 record and earned the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. 

Love suffered a dislocated shoulder during the Cavaliers' first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics and missed the remainder of the playoffs. He also dealt with a back injury during the regular season. reported last week that LeBron James will not recruit Love back to Cleveland.
