Cavs want to keep Kevin Love with or without LeBron James

Larry Nance Jr

Cleveland Cavaliers fans and the rest of the sports world are now waiting to find out what the Cavs can pull off in the offseason, and what the draft will bring on Thursday.

Cleveland, owners of the No. 8 pick in the draft, will make the selection without knowing James' intention for next season, multiple sources told ESPN.

Or do they take the best player available, hope said player is a cornerstone of the future, and still hope James decides to stay?

Assuming you read the disclaimer and are still here, I would assume you want to hear why Houston can be a good fit for LeBron James.

'You can't be thinking how this pick will impact what James is going to do'. That's getting close to half of their cap space with four players not including Kevin Love or LeBron James.

James, Cleveland.com reported, has been in touch with the team through his representatives.

After the Cavs' Game 4 loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Finals, Love addressed the uncertainty surrounding his and James' futures with the team.

And when Rafael Marquez came on in the 74th minute he made history too, tying a record by playing in his fifth World Cup . With both German full-backs pushing forward, Mexico were able to play long balls out from the back to spring an attack.

"At some point as you keep adding older guys, you've got to get younger whether you have LeBron James or not". If they can retain James and make a couple other moves to better their squad, they could be even more unsafe next season.

James is continuing to play at the highest level at 33 years of age and seems to be breaking or passing records with each game. Jordan Clarkson had his moments in the regular season.

Love has two seasons remaining on his deal with the Cavaliers and is owed just more than $49.7 million.

All of the above makes it nearly impossible to envision the Cavs being able to swing a trade for disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard.

We doubt the Cavs - who have paid nearly $500 million in combined salaries and luxury taxes the last three seasons - would take on Parsons' contract.

Though perhaps not right away, Young could be the dynamic scoring, floor spacing point guard for LeBron James, kind of like (though, again, not immediately) like the one James lost when Kyrie Irving was traded. And momentum for the Cavs to select the Missouri freshman forward only gained steam on Thursday morning, when ESPN's Jonathan Givony released his final mock draft.
