Cavs want to keep Kevin Love even if LeBron James leaves

With trade rumors starting to heat up around the National Basketball Association in anticipation of Thursday's draft, there are some signs leading to a wild night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

James, Cleveland.com reported, has been in touch with the team through his representatives. He becomes a free agent on July 1 — he could re-sign with the Cavaliers, or any other team for next season.

With this year's draft top loaded with quality big men, there's a strong possibility the Cavs will have their pick of one of the elite guards, perhaps Oklahoma's Trae Young or Alabama's Collin Sexton - two players James has praised in the past.

One dead as ferry carrying 80 people sinks in Indonesia
Kapal Motor Sinar Bangun boat carrying about around 80 people, majority domestic visitors, capsized at 17:30 p.m. Earlier this month, a ferry carrying around 43 people sank off Makassar on Sulawesi Island, killing 13.

"LeBron has said time and time again that he wants to raise his family in Cleveland and retire a Cavalier (remember the Sports Illustrated letter), do not be surprised when he ends up owning this team."
It's clear that Love would like to continue playing alongside LeBron moving forward.

-NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he understands why some fans are upset about the Golden State Warriors' assembly of a superteam with Kevin Durant, but he also gave the team praise for earning the success it has achieved. The Hall of Fame center says he was seeking championships later in his career and doesn't think James should do the same thing, according to ESPN. He has to inform the Cavs whether he intends to opt out of the final year of his contract by June 29.

Walker will be entering the final season of his current contract with the Charlotte Hornets. Or should they package the pick in a trade to land a star player in the hopes of convincing James to stay - without any guarantee he'll do so?

Takeover battle: Disney/Fox reach $71B deal, blowing away Comcast
AT&T just bought Time Warner for $81 billion, after a federal judge rejected the government's antitrust concerns. Disney is locked in a battle with U.S. media conglomerate Comcast, which has offered $65bn in cash for Fox.

With LeBron James potentially on his way out, many believe Love will be traded for young assets to rebuild around. He continued by saying "LeBron is actively searching and recruiting players to Cleveland, even more so than he did after he came back with Kevin Love".

How many times have you heard that in reference to the Cavs in the last four years?

I know many people are wondering why he would do so, considering Cleveland's roster and LeBron's lack of trust in the front office. "Always wanted to win here". If that's what you are looking for, then go back to Google or Bing or whatever the hell you were using.
