Cavs, Kevin Love working toward buyout?

Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly started conversations on a buyout and the sides could come to an agreement as soon as during the All-Star break.

Love, who is the last remaining player from the 2016 championship team, reportedly formally requested to be bought out Wednesday. He’s in the final year of his contract with a $31.2 million salary but has been out of the Cavaliers’ rotation for some time, not playing in the team’s past 12 games.

Love, who is averaging 8.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists this season, is expected to draw attention from a number of playoff contenders.
