​The Cavs plan post-LeBron was to build around ​​Kevin Love. This idea was flawed from the beginning, but hasn't been aided by ​Love's injury status


After undergoing left foot surgery, the Cavs have provided an update on Love, stating that he can now participate in select basketball activities.

Love is still nowhere close to game action, and Cleveland ought to be patient with ​​their star big man as they're stuck with his contract for the foreseeable future. At best, Love and propel Cleveland into playoff contention in a year or two, given the Cavs get lucky in the NBA Draft lottery. In case you haven't noticed, that tends to happen (LeBron, Kyrie and Anthony Bennett all went No. 1 overall).


But with this season essentially declared a wash, Love's services won't be needed much. Let Collin Sexton and co. gel as a unit and gain some valuable experience. If Cleveland chooses to trade Love, then they'll need him to prove he's healthy enough to contribute to a contender.


But should they not share that sentiment, what's the point of rushing him back?
