Kevin Love has no interest in negotiating a contract termination with the Cleveland Cavaliers, says his agent

Five-time All-Star power forward Kevin Love has no interest in negotiating a termination for the two years and $ 60 million remaining on his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, his Excel Sports agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN on Saturday.

“There have been no discussions with Cleveland about a buyout, nor is there any interest from Kevin in doing a buyout,” Schwartz told ESPN.

The Cavaliers have periodically explored a trade from Love, a scenario he supports, but have been unable to find a deal they are willing to execute, sources said.

The arrival of three significantly younger frontline players over the past year, including center Jarrett Allen, No. 3 overall pick Evan Mobley and Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen, could affect Love’s minutes with the Cavaliers.

Injuries have continued to affect Love’s productivity in recent seasons. Struggling with a calf injury a year ago, Love, 32, averaged 12.2 points and 7.4 rebounds in 24.9 minutes, a career-low.

A contract buyout would allow the Cavaliers to save some money on Love’s contract balance, and give him the freedom to sign elsewhere as a free agent.
