Even though Kevin Love sat out most part of the last season due to injury, Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t given up hope of getting Love to deliver. After all, his stats uptill last season seem to show that he is a winner. LeBron James has given the indication that the next season will feature Kevin Love more prominently. He is planning to reshuffle the team accordingly.
Cleveland Cavaliers are entering their second year in their big three era and fans are expecting big things from the team. The team’s best player LeBron James is enthusiastic about shuffling roles in the team so that last year’s acquisition Kevin Love can show his mettle on the court.
When Kevin was acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves, he had the second best score for a power forward at 27.7 points. He had been named the most improved player in 2010-11 when he had averaged 26.1 points. He had an impressive 12.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists in his kitty when the Cavaliers had signed him on.
But he failed to keep up to his fame in the last season mostly due to some really bad luck. He had a bad shoulder injury that kept him out of the game for most part of the season.
Now that he is hale and hearty, the Cavs are looking to make the most of his talent. Apparently, the time he spent playing last season, impressed the Cavaliers enough to want to sign him up for a 5 year, 110 million dollar deal.
And now that Kevin Love is back in court, they want to make the most of the money being offered to him and give him a chance to show how good he can be on the court. He has the backing of teammate LeBron James too. Hence, there is a good chance that he will have more minutes to shine this next season.
