But in an interview on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the morning, Love said he wants to stay with Cleveland for a long time. 

"Whether we lose two or three games in a row, or there's a game where my statistical output isn't necessarily what it should be, people are always going to talk," Love said. "Since I was traded to Cleveland this summer, I've said since Day 1 that I'm a Cleveland Cavalier long term and I plan for it to be that way. If I could end all the speculation now, I would.

"I just thought that Kevin, very much like the last game, he got to his spots on the floor. He made shots, he rebounded as he always does, he was very much engaged and played a really solid game for us," Blatt said, per the team's official website.

Love has registered seven double-doubles through 15 games. He is averaging 22.2 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists over his last five games, including back-to-back double-doubles.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: 'I'm just trying to find myself in this offense'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Forward Kevin Love's numbers are a bit down in his first 10 games with the Cavaliers, averaging 16.7 points and 10.4 rebounds after averaging 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds in 2013-14 for Minnesota. 

Love, however, will be the first to admit he is still adjusting to new his surroundings, according to Cleveland.com.

"I'm just trying to find myself in this offense," Love said. "It's just one of those things. We're 10 games in. I think everyone knew coming in that we would have to sacrifice. At some point we are going to need some low-post scoring and outside shooting."

Love does have a double-double in six of 10 games. Although, his offensive game still needs a little work since his shooting percentage is at 38.9 percent, which is well below his career average (45 percent).

"I haven't really said much. I'm just trying to be a part of this team as best I can to help us win," he said. "As far as getting into a rhythm it has been tough."

Cavaliers PG Kevin Love seeks more post-up opportunities


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love believes he needs more touches closer to the basket than he has received recently to maximize his contributions to his new team.

"My entire life I've played the game from inside-out," Love told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "So the more touches I can get inside to get myself going, the better. I'm not accustomed to starting out a game shooting a three, so it's just something that I see.

"I'm 26 years old and I've been playing basketball for quite a long time. Just finding ways to mix it up. If anything, keeping it around the basket a little bit more and the offense will allow me to get offensive rebounds. That will be tough for teams with Andy [Varejao] and myself and Tristan [Thompson] in there."

Love has been parking himself beyond the arc more often in the preseason and has struggled with his shot in recent games. His shooting ability creates space for such offensive talents as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, but David Blatt has expressed his understanding that Love also thrives in post-up situations that result in higher-percentage shots.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kevin Love suffers neck injury Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love suffered neck soreness in Wednesday's preseason action, but the injury is not considered serious, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Love was dealing with a knee injury coming into Wednesday's game and asked out after becoming "banged up." The team may update his status after the game if it's determined the injury is more serious than thought, but for now he looks on track to be available for the start of the regular season.


Cavaliers PF Kevin Love not worried about fitting in


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Cavaliers new power forward Kevin Love has rejected a theory that he would not be in control of his offensive opportunities this season because teammates LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will be doing most of the ball-handling.

Love has certainly not been hindered in the preseason. He is riding the tide of successive 25-point performances, including one Tuesday night against Milwaukee in which he was 5 of 7 from 3-point range.

Though neither James (rest) nor Irving (ankle) played in that game, Love is rejecting the notion that his touches would be limited by the whims of those two players.

"I'm comfortable and just not trying to, I guess, fit in so much," Love told ESPN.com after the game. "I had a talk with the guys on the plane ride over (to Brazil) and also at different practices off the floor and they told me to fit out. Just be myself.

"I kind of laughed and smirked at that. Off the court, I never have any problems with that. But on the court, it's just us having so many weapons and being able to fit together out there on the floor ... you always say check your egos at the door but we also need to bring our egos with us because that's what makes us so great. We wouldn't be here without them."


Kevin Love deal morphs into three-team trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) The Cavaliers' acquisition of Kevin Love is set to go down Saturday, and Yahoo.com reports it will end up being a three-team deal.

The Timberwolves will receive Andrew Wiggins , Anthony Bennett and a lottery-protected first-round pick from the Cavaliers in exchange for Love, and are set to move one of those pieces to Philadelphia to complete the deal.

The Wolves will move the first-round pick -- a top-10 protected pick from Miami -- to the 76ers along with Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute in exchange for Thaddeus Young, as first reported by the Minnesota Star-Tribune. 


Trade doesn't hurt Kevin Love's potential too much


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Though the move to Cleveland and a stacked Cavaliers roster should make life considerably easier for Kevin Love, should Fantasy owners be moving him down their draft boards a bit after Thursday's news?

Love carried a huge load for the Timberwolves last season, logging 36 minutes per game and finishing the season second in Fantasy scoring overall. He averaged a career-high 26.1 points and 4.4 assists per game, while adding 12.5 rebounds, but will now have to adjust to life as a second or even third option offensively.

With LeBron James and Kyrie Irving already on hand, Love is almost certainly going to take on a smaller scoring role. He attempted 18.5 field goals per game a year ago, which actually led this trio a year ago. However, he is also much more reliant on his teammates setting him up than the other two, so he should have the ball in his hands a little less by default.

Even if Love takes three fewer shots per game next season, there is little reason to drop him too much for Fantasy purposes. With his three-point range and offensive rebounding skills, Love still promises to be one of the most efficient scorers in the league. Even after adjusting his projection to reflect his new reality, Love is still projected for 23.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game next season.

Love likely won't be one of the three most productive Fantasy options in the league again next season, but there is no question he is still a slam dunk first-round pick. He shouldn't go much later than 8th overall on Draft Day. 


Report: Cavs, Wolves finalize Kevin Love deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The long-awaited deal to send Kevin Love to the Cavaliers has been agreed to, according to a Yahoo.com report Thursday.

Though the deal cannot be officially finalized until Aug. 23, the Timberwolves are expected to acquire the last two No. 1 overall picks in the deal, in the form of forwards Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. They will also reportedly receive a 2015 first-round pick in the deal.

The report also indicates the Cavaliers have received a commitment from Love that he will opt out of his current contract next offseason and re-sign a five-year max contract worth $120 million. 


Blake Griffin, Kevin Love withdraw from Team USA activities


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Team USA will be without two of its star power forwards for the August FIBA World Cup, as Blake Griffin and Kevin Love both withdrew from participation.

According to the AP, Love wants to be cautious and not risk injury while seeking a trade from the Timberwolves.

Griffin said in a statement that he appreciated the invite but would decline the opportunity in order to focus his energy on improving the Clippers.
