CLEVELAND, OH — Kevin Love continues to be unhappy with the Cavaliers’ organization according to The Athletic.

Joe Vardon and Shams Charania were the latest to report about his displeasure in Cleveland.

Love had an emotional outburst at general manager Koby Altman after shootaround on Saturday. It reportedly took place in front of teammates, other coaches and members of the front office.

The Cavs fined Love $1,000 for his actions on the sideline during a loss to the Raptors on Dec 31. He slapped chairs on the bench in frustration and distanced himself from his teammates in the third quarter of the blowout loss.

He yelled there’s “no feel here” according to the report. It’s not the first time Love has taken issue with Altman and the direction of the rebuilding Cavaliers. He’s made it clear that he wants to be traded ahead of the deadline on February 6.

Love signed a 4-year, $120 million extension with the Cavaliers in 2018 after LeBron James joined the Lakers.

The 31-year-old is averaging 16.6 points and 10.5 rebounds per game this season.

The Trail Blazers, Celtics, Heat and Nuggets are all reportedly interested in trading for Love.

He has not made his trade demands public, although it’s clear that the 5-time All-Star would like to be playing for a contender in the near future.
