Kevin Love staying in Cleveland

I’m going back to Cleveland. After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, that’s when it really struck me. Sitting on the sidelines, I never wanted to play in a game more than that one. I had dreamed of playing in the NBA Finals and I just wanted to help my guys win. I couldn’t have been prouder of them as they poured their blood, sweat and tears onto the court.

The Los Angeles Lakers will meet with free agent Kevin Love later this week, according to league sources. One source said the Lakers have heard Love is likely to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they still want to sit down with him. The meeting will be part of a busy week for the Lakers, who also will meet with LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan and Greg Monroe.

With that said, which free agent big (out of Marc Gasol, Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan) do you think we have the best chance of landing? It’s clear that’s what we’re going to target on July 1st, so I’m interested. Maybe use that “godfather’ type offer to pry Boogie from Sac-Town? David Aldridge: Out of that group, I’d say Love. But the Celtics will be in the mix for a lot of other guys, including Dallas’ Al-Faroqu Aminu, who had a strong season with the Mavs last year on a one-year deal. Boston isn’t going to just reach for the big names; there are a lot of good players who could help the Cs that wouldn’t break the bank. And remember, Boston still has that monstrous $12.9 million traded player exception from the Rajon Rondo trade last December.
LeBron James and Kevin Love may not be “best friends.” But pool buddies? Two of the Cavaliers’ most important, expensive free agents to be were spotted hanging out Sunday at a Los Angeles-area hotel pool. Sources confirmed that James, who is in L.A. for his annual skills camp for high school and college players, and Love did spend time together Sunday, but downplayed its importance.
So the focus for the Lakers heading into the few days between now and free agency will turn to big men. That’s probably a good thing; there will be choices. As good as Cousins may be, the Lakers feel they have a legitimate shot at Portland big man LaMarcus Aldridge, their preferred target. Rehabbing Cleveland forward Kevin Love is also on the radar — assuming he opted out of his contract with the Cavaliers in order to genuinely investigate other destinations and not just to re-sign with the Cavs. Love played at UCLA and has long been rumored to be interested in going to the Lakers.
