In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Cleveland Cavaliers forward has dismissed the idea of requesting a trade in the foreseeable future: “I know there’s talk about me possibly being the missing piece somewhere”, Love said. “There’s been constant chatter since I signed that I could be traded. It’s one of those things where I’m going to keep doing right by the team, by Cleveland and by the organization. If my number is called, so be it, but I’m going to stay true to my commitment and let the chips fall where they may”.
Love has signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2018 offseason, shortly after LeBron James’departure to the Lakers, and has since been mentioned in trade rumors as the franchise rebuilds.
