Kevin Love Health Issues
During the last season, Kevin Love signed a four year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for $120 million. The free agency analysts are saying that Love will be traded out to other teams so that the Cavaliers can make a comeback. The real reason behind throwing out Love is that he has spent most of his time in an injured state.
Kevin Love only managed to play 22 games in the last season of NBA. Hence the Cavaliers feels that he is extra baggage and they can get some better players instead. But what the Cavs are forgetting that if healthy, Kevin is an amazing player who can shoot doubles from the other side of the court.
Tristan Thompson’s Contract is Over
Another player which the Cleveland Cavaliers is none other than the ex-boyfriend of Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson. There was not any over the top performance from Thompson, hence he will be traded out. As of right now, Thompson has only one year left in his $82,000 contract.
It is expected that Tristan will become a free agent, and the Cleveland team will not re-sign him. There is a lot of pressure on Koby Altman, the general manager of Cleveland Cavaliers to rebuild a stronger team. More star players are needed to get the winning combination back for the Cavaliers squad.
