Love is in the final year of his contract at Cleveland which paid around $29 million to the 34-year old and despite his age, the Cavs star still remains ever consistent on the court.
Even though he was moved out of rotation earlier in February, Love is still putting up pretty good numbers at his age and with 8.5 points and 6.8 rebounds a game this season the veteran would still certainly be a dangerous asset to any roster.
The favorites to sign Love have emerged to be the Heat, who are looking to claw their way back up the Eastern Conference however with a lack of depth in their current roster, Miami are struggling in 7th which means Love could be the perfect addition to their side.
