One of the Lakers' free agent targets came off the market on Wednesday.
I'm going back to Cleveland.
After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, that's when it really struck me. Sitting on the sidelines, I never wanted to play in a game more than that one. I had dreamed of playing in the NBA Finals and I just wanted to help my guys win. I couldn't have been prouder of them as they poured their blood, sweat and tears onto the court.
Yeah, of course I've heard the free agency rumors. But at the end of the day, and after meeting with my teammates (it turns out pools are great meeting places) and with the front office, it was clear Cleveland was the place for me. We're all on the same page and we're all in. We have unfinished business and now it's time to get back to work.
Love was sidelined for the NBA Finals with a shoulder injury, his team losing to the Golden State Warriors.
The Lakers are hoping to lure a top free agent with a portion of their $22 million in cap space.
Contracts cannot be signed until the NBA's annual moratorium ends on July 9.
