Cavaliers want to keop Kevin Love next season

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says this is the Cavs' first meaningful draft pick since 2014, just before LeBron James announced he was returning to Cleveland.

The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't offering Kevin Love in any trade offers and intend to have him on the roster next season regardless of any decision LeBron James may make, ESPN reported Wednesday.

LeBron James, who is in the running for MVP, has not spoken about his free agency and has stayed quiet following his team's loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Finals earlier this month.

With three days before the National Basketball Association draft, Koby Altman and the Cavaliers front office will have to make decisions without insight into LeBron James' free agency decision.

It's also possible that James hasn't made up his mind.

According to a report by Cleveland Sports Talk, sources are revealing that LeBron James will only consider playing for two teams next season, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the L.A. Lakers. "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode". A team like the Rockets with a James Harden could be one, but until James makes a decision, it's all speculation for now.

We doubt the Cavs - who have paid nearly $500 million in combined salaries and luxury taxes the last three seasons - would take on Parsons' contract. He can hit free agency this summer if he declines the player option on his contract with the Cavaliers.

Friday's Draft is shaping up to be one for the ages.

Young could be gone by the time the Cavs are on the clock, but Sexton would be a nice backup plan.

Along with this, my source gave me some interesting information regarding chances LeBron leaves or stays, LeBron's goal to build a team in Cleveland and his ultimate end game with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Speculation has been rampant that Cleveland would look to deal Love if James leaves as a free agent.

So where does a superstar like James would fit in as an off-the-ball player?

James has remained off social media since the playoffs began in April, and his self-imposed blackout has continued since the Finals ended.
