Kevin Love does not want to play for Cleveland

Cleveland?!?! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

In a report that would have Joakim Noah smiling, Jackie MacMullan of ESPNBoston says Love has no desire to become a Cavalier. About a year ago, Cleveland was rumored to have made a push for the Minnesota big, but obviously nothing came of it. While Kyrie Irving may be an enticing teammate, it's not enough for Love to take his talents eastward. Via ProBasketballTalk:

Jackie MacMullan of ESPN Boston reports that "Cleveland has the No. 1 pick and has interest in Love, sources confirm, but the feeling isn't mutual."

Obviously, if the Cavs are looking for a Love rental, they'd probably have the chops to making an enticing offer to Minnesota (especially with the number 1 pick). Perhaps the move would also bring incentive for Luol Deng to stay. After all, a core of Irving, Waiters (though could be included in a deal), Deng and Love ain't too shabby.
