LeBron prefers staying with Cleveland

It looks like Kevin Love won't join that game of musical chairs, as the Cavaliers are not actively shopping their power forward, according to ESPN, ahead of Thursday's draft. But if I was him, I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter. With most teams struggling to find cap room, the market could get really interesting this summer. The Cavs have the No. 8 pick, which they acquired from the Nets. Their pick is likely locked on Arizona center Deandre Ayton.

CLEVELAND - The Cavaliers are not actively shopping All-Star forward Kevin Love heading into Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, multiple sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

Still, the possibility is there should the right opportunity present itself. But how he'll use it is unclear, because of one massive X-factor: LeBron James. This offseason, he's been rumored to be packaged with the Cavs' No. 8 pick for a star to lure James to stay - which the Cavaliers are trying to extinguish.

James is being linked to teams who might be better equipped to build a contender to challenge the Golden State Warriors, but has given no indication where he might be headed next.

All of this makes sense, as my source said, the chances LeBron could actually be convinced to go to LA are low due to the high amount of things that would have to happen. He has to inform the Cavs whether he intends to opt out of the final year of his contract by June 29.

Walker will be entering the final season of his current contract with the Charlotte Hornets and the team has only qualified for the playoffs one time since Walker has been a player there.

It is unlikely that any draft prospects alone would entice James to stay at this point of his career, as he is looking to win now and is unlikely to be wowed by a player that still needs developing.

"Anything is possible", Love said.

Love's meshing with James has been a constant storyline since the two made their way to Cleveland in 2014.

I know many people are wondering why he would do so, considering Cleveland's roster and LeBron's lack of trust in the front office.

My dad didn't take that too well and started ranting great facts about the city of Houston, but I said, "Fool, you can talk about Houston as much as you want to, but LeBron can't hear us".
