CLEVELAND, OH – The Cavaliers are open to trading Kevin Love according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

"I'm told that Cleveland is ready now to listen to offers on Kevin Love as we get to that December 15 date and then the February trade deadline," Wojnarowski said on ESPN's NBA Countdown.

NBA players who signed free-agent contracts in the offseason can be traded on Dec. 15. The deadline is 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 7.

"He's going to be a player very much in demand,” Wojnarowski said. "Boston, Portland, Denver –– he's going to be a player in demand. I think there are going to be a lot of conversations between Cleveland and teams all over the league."

He didn’t play for the Cavaliers on Friday night due to illness. He’s averaging 16.7 points and 10.7 rebounds per game.

Love is in the first year of a 4-year, $120 million extension. He’s under contract through the 2022-2023 season.
