CLEVELAND (WJW) — Saturday, Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers made their separation official. Today, we know where the basketball star is headed.
Just like LeBron James once did before him, he’s going to the Miami Heat.
Former teammate Tristan Thompson took to Twitter Sunday saying: “Just spoke to my brother @kevinlove. He’s confirmed with me that he’s taking his talents to South Beach. @MiamiHEAT This is a huge pick up for the heat. Let’s go!!!”
With Love responding: “Yes sir, my brother!!! Thank you for letting me bounce all of this off of you. Heat Nation, let’s go!!!”
His agent reportedly confirmed the news to ESPN, saying the deal depended on the 34-year-old clearing waivers.
The announcement is far from unexpected, as there were already rumblings Love would end up there or in Philadelphia.
On Saturday, the Cavaliers sent out a statement, thanking him for his time with the team.
“Kevin Love had an outstanding run with the Cavaliers, including memorable on-court moments, four NBA Finals appearances and an NBA Championship in 2016,” Cavaliers President of Basketball Operations Koby Altman said. “ … He also embodied everything a franchise would want in a player, and the admiration and gratitude we have for him will ultimately land his jersey in the rafters of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.”
