LeBron James is pondering what he wants to do this offseason and where he wants to sign but there’s one team who is going all out to try and get him back. They started as a joke but the Cavaliers have emerged as a real threat to get LeBron James back this summer and they’re planning out all possible outcomes.
According to Sam Amico from Fox Sports Ohio, the Cavaliers are looking at Kevin Love as a possible backup plan should they miss out on LeBron James this summer.
If James chooses to leave Miami and return to Cleveland, the Cavs still feel they can obtain Timberwolves star Kevin Love in a trade if need be, sources reiterated Sunday.
In addition to targeting Love, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavaliers could also target free agents Trevor Ariza and Channing Frye with the extra cap space they clear in their attempts to lure LeBron back to Cleveland. It’s possible that the Cavs could land all three but the focus is on LeBron James.
There’s also the questions of if Love would sign long term with the Cavaliers, but after getting Andrew Wiggins No. 1 overall and locking down Kyrie Irving with a max contract, the Cavaliers are suddenly not the terrible joke of an option they were just a few months ago.
