Cleveland Cavs not actively shopping Kevin Love

Christian Hinton of clesportstalk.com, through a source, wrote that LeBron is leaning toward staying in Cleveland. Or it could mean everything.

The Milwaukee Bucks have one of the most exciting and promising young cores in the league but have suffered from a lack of a consistent big man and also poor spacing, and Kevin Love could be the solution for both issues.

Should James opt out of his contract and sign with another team in July, going all in on his return would end up looking pretty darn foolish.

A combination of Schroder and picks could be enough to entice a team into doing a deal with the Hawks, but that's a situation that could unfold more on draft night as the first round plays out and certain players remain available.

As a bit of a side note on Love, my source also tells me the Cavs are "not high on Kevin Love" and are "likely to move on from him if the opportunity arises to get better talent".

And after Cavs were swept 4-0 in the NBA Finals by Golden State Warriors, many thought that was his last hurrah at the Quicken Loans Arena.

The 33-year-old can decide where he plays next and that has Cavs fans (and much of the NBA) on the edge of their seats waiting for LeBron's next move.

LeBron James and Shaquille O'Neal were teammates for a brief period of time.

However, reports now indicate that it may have been a drive-by shooting, with the shooters leaving in a black Dodge journey . Cellphone video taken at the scene shows the unconscious rapper in the driver's seat of his auto after the shooting.

Love, George Hill, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Jordan Clarkson and Korver are on the books for a combined $95,368,590 in 2018-19. If LeBron stays, the Cavs, once they fill out the roster, again would be over the cap, which is projected to be $108 million.

Cleveland has made a call to inquire about the availability of San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, but the franchise does not believe it has the realistic assets to convince the Spurs to deal them the former Finals MVP considering what other teams on the market can offer.

After yielding to Irving's request and trading him, the Cavs spent all last season trying to replace him.

And if a trade were to go down, it would have be done after the Cavs make their pick at the No. 8 spot.

The Hornets have been stuck between the playoffs and rebuilding over the past few seasons.

However, Kyrie Irving put the Cavs in the position to draft high this year.

"Multiple sources ... have indicated the Cavs would look to improve (read, continue to spend) while James makes his decision", Vardon wrote.
