Kevin Love has no interest in negotiating buyout with Cleveland Cavaliers, agent says

Jeff Schwartz, Excel Sports' agent for Kevin Love, stated that the five-time All-Star forward is not interested in negotiating a buyout of the $60 million and two years remaining on his contract with Cleveland Cavaliers.
Schwartz stated to ESPN that there have not been any talks with Cleveland about a buyout. Schwartz also said that Kevin is not interested in a buyout.

Sources said that the Cavaliers have explored trades Love, which he supports, but have not been able to reach a deal.

Three significantly younger frontcourt players have arrived in the last year: center Jarrett Allen and No. Love could be affected by Evan Mobley, the Bulls' forward, and Lauri Markkanen, the Cavaliers' forward -- Love may not get as much time with the Cavaliers.

Love has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons. Love, 32, was injured in his calf last year and averaged 12.2 points per game. Love also had 7.4 rebounds in 24.9 minutes, a career low.

A contract buyout would enable the Cavaliers save money on Love's balance and allow Love to sign anywhere he chooses.
