Nothing's changed – Cavs star Kevin Love on trade talk

Kevin Love said "nothing's changed" as the Cleveland Cavaliers star addressed speculation over a possible trade.

Love – a five-time All-Star – has won an NBA championship since joining the Cavaliers from the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2014.

However, the 31-year-old's future in Cleveland is uncertain as the Cavaliers (5-17) struggle this season.

The Cavaliers are reportedly willing to listen to offers for veteran Love, who is not bothered by the trade talk.

"Nothing's changed," Love told ESPN. "What I mean by that is, since I got here they've been ... since I f****** got here, there's been talk of me being traded, so it's nothing different.

"If they decide to go that way, I've just got to know it's part of the business, or if we decide to go that way, it's part of the business.

"Truthfully, I don't know how it's going to play out, because I see both sides."

On being the oldest player on the Cavs' roster, Love added: "I imagine, in a rebuild, it's easy to look at it, especially when it's down and out at this point, and say, 'Hey, we want to completely reset the deck and go young. I understand that.

"But despite that, whether it's five months or five years, I'm always going to be able to come back to Cleveland no matter what, and I'll always love the fans, and be part of this organisation, one way or another."

In 2019-20, Love is averaging 16.1 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game for the struggling Cavaliers.
