Cavs still view Kevin Love as valuable piece in slow rebuild

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers intend to keep Kevin Love around. The five-time All-Star forward was limited to 25 games by injuries this past season, when the young Cavs went 22-50 and failed to be competitive. Love was never fully healthy and then led to some frustration, which reached a boiling point when he had an on-court meltdown against Toronto. The regrettable moment may have hurt Love’s standing with fans, but general manager Koby Altman said it didn’t affect his relationships with teammates. Altman wants Love to embrace his leadership role.
