Kevin Love says he will stay with with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In a essay he wrote for The Players Tribune, the power forward revealed he will give it another shot in “The Land”.

“I’m going back to Cleveland, after Game 1 of the NBA Finals, that’s when it really struck me. Sitting on the sidelines, I never wanted to play in a game more than that one. I had dreamed of playing in the NBA Finals and I just wanted to help my guys win. I couldn’t have been prouder of them as they poured their blood, sweat and tears onto the court.

“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’re all on the same page and we’re all in. We have unfinished business and now it’s time to get back to work.”

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Love will sign a max five-year, $110 million pact to stay with the Cavs.
