I was wondering what the consensus on the Love situation is here. Seems like the Cavs have been trying to trade him since he signed that extension a few years back. Love is still on the Cavs roster and books and it seemed like the situation was going to reach a buyout sooner rather than later but reports a week or so back seems to indicate there haven't been talks.
Do you guys see a buyout realistically happening before the playoffs this year? Or will you likely keep holding on for a trade?
My opinion is that he nurses injuries longer than anybody in NBA history and has zero desire to hold up his end of the bargain with his contract while being a leech on the Cavs salary cap.
Realistically, he is going to play this entire season as a Cav- he likes it or not. Nobody wants him and he doesnt want a buyout at this number because as a Athletic reporter said 'Kevin loves his money'. So we are stuck with him and he is stuck with us for 1 more season before a realistic buyout happens next offseason.
I get the impression the Cavs approve of Kevin nursing his injuries, but it's a fact his injuries (back, calf, Achilles, etc) are problematic/lingering type injuries that can easily be re-aggravated. If he was actually playing for something, maybe he'd take the pain killers and play.
