What might appear frightening on the surface may not be too bad after all. All-Stars LeBron James and Kevin Love both decided to opt out of their contracts with the Cleveland Cavaliers to test free agency. Even though James and Love may see what is available to them on the open market, the likelihood of both players re-signing with the Cavaliers is very high.

According to sources, the Cavaliers will officially offer Love a maximum contract worth $110 million over five years. Despite the possibility of taking meetings with other teams, Love is expected to accept the deal. This should not come as a surprise after he discussed his desire to play in the NBA Finals and remain with a team that can get him there.

“I had so much fun watching it because I want to be in a moment like that,” Love said after witnessing the Cavaliers lose to the Golden State Warriors in overtime in Game 1. “I’d rather be out there helping those guys, and I saw a lot of places where I could help.

“I’ve never wanted to be in a game more than that one,” Love continued.

As far as James is concerned, he will likely sign a two-year deal that includes a player option on the second year, which will be a mirrored version of the contract he signed last summer. James did not depart South Beach to make his return to Cleveland and lead the Cavaliers to the brink of a championship only to ship out immediately. He wants nothing more than to bring Cleveland a title, which will most likely occur next year.
