Pumirma na si forward Kevin Love ng 4-year, $120M extension sa Cleveland.
Ginawa ang paglagda sa kontrata ng 29-anyos na player sa Quicken Loans Arena noong Martes sa harap ng mga empleyado at construction workers ng Cavs.
Ang kabuuang deal niya sa Cleveland ay five years at $145 million, ayon sa ESPN.
“When I first came to Cleveland, I came with a long-term mindset,” ani Love.
“I came here to win. We developed a culture here that reflects that. I’m super excited and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a big commitment for me and it’s a big commitment from the Cavaliers, so I want to thank Dan Gilbert, Koby Altman and the entire organization. I enjoy playing here, I’m excited about the team that we have and look forward to our future together. Cleveland fans have been special from day one and I’m also looking forward to continuing to be a part of this great community.”
Sa sampung taong karera ni Love, nag-average siya ng 18 points, 11 rebounds at 2 assists kada laro.
Fifth overall pick siya noong 2008 ng Memphis. Nai-trade siya sa Cleveland noong 2014.
Binati si Love ng dati niyang teammate sa Cavs na si LeBron James sa Twitter.
