Kevin Love is a former All-Star and NBA champion who is currently on the Cleveland Cavaliers. While Love hasn't had the best season, he is still a player that could potentially help a contender with his shooting prowess and rebounding.

A recent report has indicated that the Brooklyn Nets are a contender that could get Love in the eventuality that he gets bought out by the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they are at the top of his list in that scenario. The report also mentioned that Kevin Love would be rooming with Nets star Kevin Durant during the Olympic training in Las Vegas.

The Brooklyn Nets have a fearsome big three of Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kevin Durant: that is enough offense to compete with any other team. If they manage to retain Blake Griffin in free agency and potentially get Kevin Love via buyout, it could be scary for the rest of the league. 

While there is no guarantee that Love will get a buyout from the Cleveland Cavaliers, going to the Nets does seem intriguing for a veteran like Love due to their status as championship contenders. It remains to be seen what happens with Kevin Love next season, but it looks as though there is a spot for him in Brooklyn.
