REPORT: Kevin Love Considering Opting Out and Joining Lakers

Just five games into the 2014-15 NBA season, there are rumours that Cavs All-Star forward Kevin Love is reportedly considering opting out of his current deal with the Cavs and joining the Lakers in 2015.

When Love was dealt to the Cavs there were reports that he had verbally agreed to sign a five-year $120 million extension with them after this season, however, it looks like that may not be true.

Bulls.com’s Sam Smith is reporting that Love is seriously considering opting out and becoming a free agent in 2015. Smith also reports that Love would have a strong interest in joining the Los Angeles Lakers if he does become a free agent. For years now Love has been linked to joining the Lakers, but will he really ditch the Cavs after just one season?

It’s not going to get as much discussion during the season, but one of the biggest issues for the Cavs is that both LeBron James and Kevin Love own opt outs after this season. LeBron James basically cannot afford to go anywhere after his return to Cleveland. But watch out for Love. Indications are he will seriously consider the opt out and has his eyes on a return to Los Angeles, where he attended college and where the Lakers long have had him on their free agent wish list
