Kevin Love: 'I'm going back to Cleveland'

Love broke the news on The Players Tribune, writing: "Yeah, of course I’ve heard the free agency rumors. But at the end of the day, and after meeting with my teammates (it turns out pools are great meeting places) and with the front office, it was clear Cleveland was the place for me. ... We have unfinished business and now it’s time to get back to work."

Ultimately Lakers don't really have much to offer free agents besides cap space and young players. That's why they keep striking out

Ramona Shelburne @ramonashelburne

Lakers are "stunned" to hear how coolly their presentation was received by LMA. I spoke to 3-4 folks last night who felt good about it.

Jimmy Butler, Bulls agree on 5-year deal

The deal is worth $90M, sources tell ESPN's Brian Windhorst. Butler will have a player option for the fifth year of the deal, but the contract assures he will be in Chicago through the 2019-20 season.

Tom Haberstroh: Kevin Love wants wins

"Looking at the Lakers and looking at the Knicks -- that's not where they are yet. They're years away from contending for championships. ... This is really big news, because [the Cavs] need to get that talent to maintain their championship contention."

Royce Young @royceyoung

OKC fans that think Singler isn't good are going off 26 games. He's exactly the kind of role playing wing you've been saying the team needs.

Royce Young @royceyoung

With Kyle Singler re-signed (and Kanter likely to come), it's likely the Thunder will look to move Perry Jones or Steve Novak (or both).

If the Mavs don't close the deal on DeAndre Jordan, their best bet might be to see if Pacers still want to dump Roy Hibbert's salary.

Windhorst: Love remains loyal to Cavs

Brian Windhorst: "This is a grand plan for the Cavs. There was some concern that he wouldn't take a long deal, but this is him locking in, he's showing faith in the franchise."
