Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love who will become a free agent this summer plans to return to play basketball for the Cavaliers next season despite rumors that he will be playing basketball for another team that will pay him his market value that can command as a free agent.

Will Kevin Love return to play basketball for the Cleveland Cavaliers next season?

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love who can become a free agent at the end of the current basketball season had a chat with reporters on Sunday making a statement that he will return to play basketball for the Cavaliers at the start of the 2015-16 basketball season.
Love who is in his seventh season in the National Basketball Association played six seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2008-2013 before he was traded by the Timberwolves to the Cavaliers in exchange for shooting guard Anthony Wiggins and power forward Anthony Bennett on August 23, 2014 to serve as the third member of the Cavaliers Big Three players with includes forward LeBron James and guard Kyrie Irving.
Love suffered an injury to his left shoulder in the Opening Round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs in the fourth game versus the Boston Celtics that required an operation to repair a separated left shoulder that placed Love on the shelf for the remainder of the playoffs.
Free agency begins on July 1, 2015. The Cavaliers management has a decision to make whether to try to sign Love to a contract extension to keep him on the team for the next basketball season or decide to sign to let Love hit the free agent market to play basketball for another team that needs his services.
In case Love decides not to return to the Cavaliers next season. Forward Tristan Thompson who replaced Love in the Cavaliers starting lineup during the remainder of the playoffs will be his replacement next basketball season.
Time will tell if Love will use his free agent status as leverage to get a better deal to remain with the Cavaliers or leave the team for another team where he does not have to live under the shadow of LeBron James who is the face of the Cavaliers franchise.
