With Dec. 15 quickly approaching, the Cavaliers have shown an increased willingness to listen to offers for Kevin Love. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavs have expressed interest in entertaining offers that would move Love out of Cleveland prior to the NBA Trade Deadline.

Wojnarowski detailed the developing market for Love on Friday:

As NBA trade possibilities expand beginning Dec. 15, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expressing a willingness to listen to trade offers for All-Star forward Kevin Love, league sources told ESPN.

Cleveland is open to the idea of moving Love before the Feb. 7 trade deadline should the Cavaliers find a requisite package of young assets and/or future draft picks, league sources said.

During a segment on SportsCenter, Wojnarowski hinted that pursuing Love could make sense for a handful of Western Conference teams, a list that included the Trail Blazers.

Love, a 31-year-old big man, has appeared in 17 games for the Cavs this season. He agreed to a four-year, $120 million extension in the summer of 2018. Love is under contract through the 2022-23 season.
