Kevin Love has now played for three teams during his NBA career but his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers is talked about the most.
Love now plays for the Miami Heat but he still holds a special place in his heart for the Cavaliers.
According to a report from Chris Fedor, Love is “open” to the idea of coming back to the team.
“I am definitely open to coming back and retiring there,” Love said about the Cavaliers.

Love spent nine seasons with the Cavaliers, won a championship with them, and cemented his status as one of the most important players for the team during that time.
He averaged 15.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists during his Cavaliers tenure.
He was earning less time on the floor during his final seasons with Cleveland and fans weren’t shocked when he left the team for the Heat.
Since moving to Miami, he has recorded 7.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game.
Love is now 35 years old and plays an average of 18.2 minutes per game.
It is very likely that within a few years, Love will decide to hang up his jersey and retire from the NBA.
That means that he only has a limited amount of time to come back to the Cavaliers and end his career there.
Depending on salary issues, Cleveland might also be very open to that idea.
He remains a beloved figure in the city and the fanbase still adores him.
So if there was a way to bring Love back to the team, even for just a season or two, everyone would be happy about it.
