Lillard could match Davis' contract

Chris Broussard: "[Damian Lillard's] contract numbers are less than Anthony Davis' 5 years, $145 million. They're less because Davis has started in two All-Star games and made two All-NBA teams.

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.

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."


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."
