He’s only played a handful of games with his new team, but Kevin Love might already have his sights set elsewhere.
Sam Smith of Bulls.com reported Monday that the Cleveland Cavaliers center might consider opting out of his contract at the end of the year.
Smith also said that Love might eye a return to Los Angeles, where he attended UCLA. The Los Angeles Lakers have long coveted the big man and will have plenty of cap room next summer to make a strong pursuit for him.
That said, despite a 2-3 start in Ohio, the Cavaliers might still be the best shot for Love to win a title playing alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. On the other hand, the Lakers have plenty of question marks and might continue to do so come next year.
