Kevin Love had a meeting set up with the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this week, but it doesn’t matter now as according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kevin Love have agreed to a five-year 110 million dollar deal. Love wrote an essay in The Player’s Tribune to elaborate more on his re-signing with the Cavaliers.
“I’m going back to Cleveland,” Love wrote. “After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, that’s when it really struck me. Sitting on the sidelines, I never wanted to play in a game more than that one. I had dreamed of playing in the NBA Finals, and I just wanted to help my guys win. I couldn’t have been prouder of them as they poured their blood, sweat and tears onto the court.
“Yeah, of course I’ve heard the free-agency rumors. But at the end of the day, and after meeting with my teammates [it turns out pools are great meeting places] and with the front office, it was clear Cleveland was the place for me. We’re all on the same page and we’re all in. We have unfinished business, and now it’s time to get back to work.”
Love averaged 16.4 points and 9,7 rebounds in 75 regular season games for the Cavaliers last season.
