It’s become part of a fall tradition like no other in Cleveland. The weather gets cold, the Browns inch closer toward elimination from the postseason (check out Pro Football Rumors for the latest on the NFL club), and the Kevin Love trade rumors heat up.
Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavaliers are indeed ready to listen to offers for the big man, as he explained on ESPN’s NBA Countdown (h/t Ben Pickman of Sports Illustrated).
“I’m told that Cleveland is ready now to listen to offers on Kevin Love as we get to that December 15 date and then the February trade deadline,” Woj said on the telecast.
Love is in the first year of a four-year, $120.4MM extension he signed back in 2018. Wojnarowski said a number of teams in both conferences could have interest in the power forward and if a deal happens, expect it to come after December 15 when many of the league’s offseason signings are eligible to be dealt.
The Cavaliers have always been willing to listen to offers for Love, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com tweets. According to Fedor, the team isn’t actively shopping the five-time All-Star, though if the right deal presents itself, Love will be on a new team.
