Love 'committed' to Cavs

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Love was introduced as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday and said he is "committed" to the end goal of the organization.

However, he didn't guarantee he would sign a long-term extension with his new team.

Love, who was officially acquired Saturday from the Minnesota Timberwolves in a multi-team trade, can become a free agent after this coming season and said contract talks have not yet been brought up.

"That is something that hasn't been talked about," said Love regarding the potential of staying in Cleveland past one season.

"I'm committed to this team," Love did say. "Committed long-term to the end goal, and that's to win championships."

The Cavs gave up 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins and a protected first- round selection to acquire Love and pair him with fellow All-Stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Unless Cleveland can win a championship this season, that would be a lot to give up if Love becomes a one-year rental.

However, previous reports have indicated that Love will opt out of his current deal after the upcoming season to sign a new contract with the Cavaliers -- a five-year extension worth at least $120 million.

Love averaged 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds in 77 games for the Timberwolves last season. He has spent his first six NBA seasons with Minnesota and owns career averages of 19.2 points and 12.2 rebounds.
