Kevin Love Re-Signs With Cavaliers For $110 Million, Tyson Chandler Joins Suns For $52 Million

As the Inquisitr reported last week, Kevin Love opted-out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers in order to sign for more money, be it with the Cavs, or any one of the other 29 NBA teams. The Los Angeles Lakers were rumored to be the team Kevin would head to if he spurned Cleveland, but today, on the first day of free agency, Love has decided he will stick with the team that traded for him last season, re-signing with Cleveland for five-years, and $110 million, according to ESPN.

Here are some immediate reactions from Twitter regarding Love.

In a deal many might consider surprising, former Dallas Mavericks center and Team USA gold medalist Tyson Chandler has signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Phoenix Suns. The Suns just also recently re-signed guard Brandon Knight to a five-year, $70 million contract.

Here are some immediate reactions regarding Chandler.

In yet another big move, the Chicago Bulls have re-signed guard Jimmy Butler to a five-year, $90 million deal. This move comes after the Bulls re-signed shooter Mike Dunleavy to a three-year, $15 million contract earlier today.

Once the Cavaliers re-sign LeBron James, the team will have a core three of James, Love, and Kyrie Irving leading them on the court for years to come. Had Love and Irving not gotten injured during this year’s playoffs run, the Golden State Warriors might not be the 2014-15 NBA Finals champs.

Chandler joins Knight and Eric Bledsoe in what Phoenix may want to call their “big three,” but do you think the signing of the seven-foot center is enough to get the Phoenix squad over the hump?
