Article Summary:

Cavs forward Kevin Love is currently in Las Vegas with Team USA ahead of the upcoming Olympic Games in Japan. Love was perhaps the most surprising inclusion on the 12-man roster considering he has been injured and not been the All-Star caliber player he was when he played for Team USA almost a decade ago.

“We’re going to work his ass off the next four to five weeks and demand a lot,” head coach Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday, per ESPN.

“That’s going to definitely get him back into the rhythm he needs to be in to continue to play. I think that’s one of the big reasons he wanted to do this, so he can get himself back to who he was.” Per the story, Popovich was the one who decided to offer Love a spot on the team. If he plays well, it maybe can boost his diminished trade value and help grease the wheels on a trade to a team he wants to play for.
