There has been some upturn in Cleveland over the past week or so, with former head coach David Blatt being relieved of his duties and Tyronn Lue taking his place.
However, it seems like that is where the turnover at the Cavaliers will start and end if the words of general manager David Griffin are to be taken as gospel.
There had been some rumors circulating about the future of Kevin Love but Griffin has vehemently denied that the big man will be leaving the Quicken Loans Arena.

“You’d have to go a long way to convince me that we’re a better team winning in the Finals without a player like Kevin on our team,” Griffin said on Monday in an interview for local Cleveland radio station WKNR.
“We’ve never once put together an offer involving Kevin nor have we taken a call on an offer for Kevin. We think very highly of Kevin and we believe Kevin thinks very highly of this situation,” Griffin added.
That wasn't the end of Griffin's comments, however, as he also went on to add that there are no "untouchables" on the Cavaliers roster.
"I can also tell you that we have been very clear from the beginning that there’s no such thing as untouchables. You’re either all the way in or all the way out in this process and we believe our guys are all the way in.”
Love signed a five-year, $112 million deal in the summer of 2015 but became eligible to be traded on January 15th. Against his former team the Timberwolves on Monday, Love recorded 11 points on 5-11 shooting to go along with six total rebounds.
