The Cleveland Cavaliers said their final goodbyes to the BIG3.먹튀검증
According to reporter Shams Charania of 『The Athletic』, on the 16th (Korean time), Cleveland announced that they would terminate the contract with Kevin Love (forward-center, 203cm, 114kg).
Love’s contract expires at the end of this season. This is because the extension contract (4 years, 120 million dollars) signed in the summer of 2018 is ending. Opportunities to play have declined this season. It wasn’t even that many of his injuries caused him to miss out. Eventually, he decided to end his association with Cleveland.
He appeared in 74 games last season as well. Even when Jarrett Allen, Evan Mobley and Lauri Makkanen (Utah) were all in place, he played his part on the bench. Like an old man, he came out as a tutor for the big men. He led the bench alongside Ricky Rubio, bringing experience to the team. However, his playing time has been significantly reduced this season, and he has finally decided to terminate his contract.
He has appeared in 41 games this season. He recorded 8.5 points (.389 .354 .889), 6.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 20 minutes per game. His playing time is similar to last season. However, the frequency of his not being able to play in the game has increased markedly. Until the end of last January, he has been steadily on the court, but he has hardly stepped on the court in recent months.
Cleveland already has a solid big man power. The balance was balanced by bringing in Donovan Mitchell using Makanen and Colin Sexton (Utah). Inside, Mobley and Alan do their part, with Dean Wade backing them up. Depending on the situation, only one big man can be put in, so the player base is solid. Even Robin Lopez, who can step out in case of emergency, is lined up.
Love’s position has declined. Considering that his annual salary this season is close to $29 million, his performance is all the more disappointing. In the end, both parties agreed to terminate the contract amicably. He was traded to Cleveland in the summer of 2014. He played with LeBron James (Lakers) and Kyrie Irving (Dallas) in Cleveland and won his first championship.
Meanwhile, as he comes out on the transfer market, he is receiving attention from several clubs. It may be difficult for him to play many roles right away, but if he joins as a candidate for the championship, he is expected to be able to take responsibility for around 15 minutes. It is known that the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State Warriors, and LA Lakers, starting with the Miami Heat, which need to fill up their inner power, are considering signing Love.
