The power forward, who is the final member of the 2016 champion squad currently playing in Cleveland, is expected to be acquired by the Miami Heat.

It's the end of an era for the Cleveland Cavaliers: Shams Charania and Jason Lloyd of The Athletic have reported that the Cavaliers are close to reaching a buyout agreement with power forward Kevin Love. Love is the lone remaining member of the big three after Kyrie Irving and LeBron James left the team in 2017 and 2018, and he has a contract worth $28.9 million for the upcoming season. The 120 million dollar extension he signed in July 2018 expires this summer, at which point it appeared he would also depart from the team that was beginning its second post-LeBron reconstruction. As a result, he will be free to sign a new contract next summer.

Love joined the Cavs in 2014 when LeBron's return to Ohio led to the formation of the big three, but he has since continued to be a seasoned voice and a true benchmark for the team's supporters. Now, they will observe how he finally departs from that team. Having played six seasons in Minnesota after being chosen fifth overall in the 2008 selection, he left the state along with Kyrie.

Love, 34, was an all star five times, with the most recent appearance coming in 2018. He will now finalise an arrangement with the Cavaliers under which he will forgo some of the remaining compensation (of those $28.9 million) and sign, in concept, for the proportionate share of the minimum contract with another team with the aim of being a free agent in the summer.

Miami Heat is already a worthy adversary. Despite the obvious connection, there are not any current rumours that specifically mention the Los Angeles Lakers. because of Love's friendship with James, who was born in Santa Monica and played college basketball at UCLA.

His performance this season has considerably declined: 8.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in 20 minutes on average with a 35.4% three-point shooting percentage. He played his final game on January 24. Later, coach JB Bickerstaff agreed with him to withdraw from the rotation until a solution that already pointed to the buyout was found. He was also dealing with a thumb injury at the time.
