Cavs ready to listen to trade offers for Kevin Love

As NBA trade possibilities expand beginning Dec. 15, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expressing a willingness to listen to offers for All-Star forward Kevin Love, league sources told ESPN.

Cleveland is open to the idea of moving Love before the Feb. 6 trade deadline should the Cavaliers find a requisite package of young assets and/or future draft picks, league sources said.

Love is an intriguing target for franchises in both conferences, especially in a season in which so many teams believe a key addition could catapult them into championship contention.

Dec. 15 represents the date when players who signed free-agent contracts in the offseason are eligible to be moved — a status that covers roughly 40 percent of the league.

Love, 31, has three years and $90 million left on his contract.

The Cavaliers are pursuing a full rebuild, gathering young players and draft picks. The Cavaliers’ plan has been to let coach John Beilein develop a younger roster. The team has a roster thick with expiring veteran contracts, including those of Tristan Thompson, Brandon Knight, Jordan Clarkson, John Henson and Matthew Dellavedova.
