Cavaliers' Kevin Love expects to be mentioned in trade rumors

Cavaliers' Kevin Love expects to be mentioned in trade rumors

As the Golden State Warriors celebrated their second straight NBA Championship, and third title in four years, late on Friday night, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James made a startling revelation during the post game press conference.

In coming weeks, Golden State will extend head coach Steve Kerr's contract past next season.

Now Durant says he needs to hammer out only the final details on a rich deal to remain with the Warriors. Having LeBron James back would mean they would be competing for an National Basketball Association title again next season, but it has become clear over the past two seasons that beating the stacked Warriors would require more than just having the four-time MVP in Cleveland's fold.

In the end, James may decide home is still the sweetest spot.

Utah Jazz - Donovan Mitchell became one of the most entertaining players in the league as a rookie this season, and Utah has a number of intriguing players surrounding him.

The first-round pick the Cavaliers obtained in the Kyrie Irving trade landed at No. 8, far from a certainty in landing a franchise-changing player, and the team remains locked into much of its expensive roster.

While the Heat management will make the requisite effort to recruit James again, most likely led by his close friend Wade, the team's current status doesn't quite fit the veteran's parameters.

If he chooses to leave Cleveland, the Cavs are set for a full rebuild and will also trade Kevin Love before the start of next season, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. His next destination is undetermined, but all indications are that his second stint for his local team has run its course. It's unclear if they can move forward together.

The King always has most of the possession of the ball since he's the undisputed best player on the Cavaliers roster, which is why Durant believes it's harder for him to shine on the court for the Warriors.

"Legally, he may be working for our organisation, but that's not really the case, " Gilbert said.

"I have no idea at this point", James said. The last team to be swept before this latest edition of the Cavaliers was the 2007 Cavaliers team that got wiped out as quickly as possible by the San Antonio Spurs. He found it with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, and he came back a different man, ready to build his legacy. "(Kevin Durant) went there, they teamed up, and it's like, 'OK, beat this.' I think it's on another organization to kind of give that same narrative". I want to see Quinn Cook come back a better player.
