It's been a while since Kevin Love played meaningful minutes. Meaning he's barely been on the court over the past couple of years and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been far from a contending team.

Then again, there's a strong belief around the league that Love still has plenty left in the tank and that, put in the right situation, he could help a championship contender.

According to Sam Amico of Hoops Wire, the former NBA Champion is on several teams' radar, including the New Orleans Pelicans, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, Portland Trail Blazers, and Los Angeles Clippers:

“Per sources, potential Love suitors include the Pelicans, 76ers, Heat, Clippers and Trail Blazers. It is believed Love is hoping to move on from the Cavs, but no trade requests have been made and sources say there’s no reason to believe a request is forthcoming,” read Amico's report.

Per Amico, the Clippers are looking forward to adding another star next summer and even though Love's best years seem far behind him, he'd still be a nice addition to their already impressive core.

The 31-year-old still has two years left in his contract and will earn around $30 million a year, so he's not going to be an easy deal to absorb.

But, given his current status and his frustration with his current situation, it wouldn't be strange to think that Love could agree to a buyout with the Cavaliers, especially if he shows out with Team USA during the Olympics.
