The Cleveland Cavaliers’ acquisition of Lauri Markkanen was a clear indication that Kevin Love’s role with the squad is going to take a serious hit. Details have now emerged as to the exact role the former All-Star is expected to fill in the Cavs’ rotation in the upcoming season and it definitely won’t sit well with Kevin Love.
