Kevin Love 'Would Love' To Remain With Cavaliers

Kevin Love Cavs

The five-time All-Star power forward of the Cleveland Cavaliers told reporters Monday that the original timeline to return after surgery to fix an injured left foot in mid-October is no longer in play. Love signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension after James' departure, and now, Cleveland may be regretting their decision. "I didn't know what the doctor was going to say in NY, but I think just if I'm feeling good and I progress well then hopefully it will be sooner rather than later".

Despite already missing 36 games this season, Love has no interest in missing the remainder of the year. "I think just if I'm feeling good and I progress well than hopefully it will be sooner rather than later".

In mid-December, rumors swirled that five teams reached out the Cavaliers attempting to trade for Love. "I don't know when I'll be able to go one on one, two on two, three on three, but I think that's all part of the next few weeks I'd say".

Long story short, Love's recovery from toe surgery has gone along a lot slower than anyone expected.

The 30-year-old forward hasn't played since October 24 because of a toe injury but his name has still surfaced recently in trade rumors.

Oakland A's expect Kyler Murray to enter 2019 National Football League draft
The A's took Murray with the No. 9 pick in the 2018 MLB Draft and gave him a $4.66 million signing bonus. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller said talk of Murray staying with football has been "heating up".

However, Love made it clear that he has no intentions of sitting out the remainder of the season.

Love, however, said he still plans to play again in 2018-19. "I've said all along that I've wanted to be here and I've said this too - it's a business".

He also stated that he wants to play as soon as he can and does not want to just throw away the rest of the season, even with head coach Larry Drew and the Cavs not close to anywhere near the postseason picture.

At 8-32, they have the NBA's worst record and lost nine straight games going into Tuesday's matchup with Indiana. "I don't know what's going to happen". I want to be out there with those guys.

"I'll get more of an idea of that over the next couple weeks,"Love said from practice Monday". He expects his name will surface in trade talks ahead of the deadline like it does every year but hopes to remain in Cleveland. It's always different, so, you know I would love to be here, I would just love to get through a whole season healthy just because I've had little nagging things that have taken time.
