Cleveland Cavs not actively shopping Kevin Love

Love has been rumored recently as being part of a package that includes the Cavs' no. 8 pick in this Thursday's NBA Draft.

StubHub, the online ticket exchange, told CBSSports.com that four of its top five seasons for Cavaliers ticket sales came in LeBron's second stint in Cleveland.

With 15 seasons under his belt and a 3-6 record in the NBA Finals, James is looking to join a team that can help him win another title.

Along with this, my source gave me some interesting information regarding chances LeBron leaves or stays, LeBron's goal to build a team in Cleveland and his ultimate end game with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The LeBron sweepstakes are getting interesting, and no one knows where the four time MVP will play next season.

"At StubHub, we have seen Cavs ticket demand steadily increase each season since LeBron returned, which is a real testament to his star power", said StubHub spokesperson Cameron Papp.

All of the above makes it nearly impossible to envision the Cavs being able to swing a trade for disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard. Kawhi Leonard's trade demand and Paul George's long-rumored interest in Los Angeles created a lot of momentum for the Lakers case, but Cleveland is doing what they can without having any idea of what James will do.

It doesn't look like that's going to happen, though.

"If you don't think LeBron's people and [Gilbert] have been talking you're wrong".

"After I got to three, everybody was saying I couldn't get another".

"People tend to forget LeBron's ultimate end game in the National Basketball Association, which is owning a team".

All of this information is certainly exciting, however, keep in mind that LeBron has in no way made his decision yet.

Sources said the Cavs front office and James camp have been in contact over the phone and in person, though there has been no meeting with James present, nor has there been any real dialogue as far as James future is concerned. OK, that kinda stinks (you got me), but keeping LeBron is worth every roster-altering risk.
