I really think that is the way this is going to go in the end, not sure the rules of buying out players with timelines or anything but I really believe Love this season will be like Drummond last year.
They could have at least tried to create a rumor that made some sense.
For instance, if there was a team with cap space interested in Kevin, maybe he'd be willing to give up a significant portion of his salary such that the Cavs might be able to do something; otherwise our worst case is we make it through another season and he's an expiring contract that can at least be used to absorb salary in a trade.
We don't owe him a $60M parting gift for helping us win a championship.
I know I cannot speak for others about $$ but at the same time Love has more money than God at this point in his career. If he wants out that bad, why doesnt he go to the Cavs FO and negotiate a buyout at 1/2 the cost of his contract. Its still 30 m i l l i o n dollars.
I highly highly highly doubt anyteam wants to trade for that contract even if the Cavs attach assets to it. Its dumb for the Cavs to give up assets they need in a rebuild just to not pay Kevin Love to play basketball.
lol, even if Kevin didn't need the money personally, there's still a lot he could do with $30M to make a difference in areas he cares about.
The odds of him agreeing to a buyout of more $$$ than he can recoup signing with another team are very low, and in a year, he becomes the Cavs favorite asset - an expiring contract.
