  Report: Cavaliers would’ve traded Kevin Love for Paul George if LeBron James committed long-term last summer And probably kept Kyrie IrvingThe Cavs also apparently sought a commitment from LeBron earlier that summer, when they were discussing a three-way trade with the Pacers and Nuggets that would have sent Paul George to Cleveland and Kevin Love to Denver. That deal fell apart over the Cavaliers insisting on protecting a pick that would have gone to Indiana.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have made it clear that they’re not about to go into full-scale rebuild mode after LeBron James left in free agency for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Cleveland still believes it can contend in what has been a weakened Eastern Conference. Whether that equates to anything more than a bottom rung playoff spot remains to be seen.

But following James’ exit, rumors continue to persist that Cleveland is in fact looking to trade away some of its veteran assets. That has in the past included Kevin Love and Kyle Korver.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, The Cavaliers don’t want to necesarily trade either veteran. Though, the NBA insider also notes that the only real untouchable on the team’s roster is rookie lottery pick Collin Sexton.

The Sexton angle is intriguing in that Cleveland pushed back against including him in a deal for Charlotte Hornets All-Star Kemba Walker. Certainly, the Cavs think they can build around the Alabama product moving forward.

As it relates to Love and Korver, both have movable contracts. Still an All-Star performer, Love is due just south of $50 million over the next two seasons. Meanwhile, the 37-year-old Kover has two years remaining on his deal at a total value of $15.1 million.

In post-LeBron world, Cavs are betting big on Kevin Love reclaiming star status .
The Cavs are banking on Kevin Love’s ability to return to his Minnesota form. It’s part of a patchwork plan pocked with question marks, but one that could keep Cleveland in playoff contention next season. The Cavs were encouraged by the summer league showing of three key rotation players — draftee Collin Sexton, center Ante Zizic and forward Cedi Osman — and remain hopeful that they’ll keep restricted free agent Rodney Hood.MORE: Reviewing biggest NBA summer league winners, losers and pleasant surprisesWith veterans like Larry Nance Jr.
