Love, 34, was officially waived by the Cavs on Saturday after agreeing to a contract buyout.
He spent nine years with the Cavs and was the last remaining member of the 2016 NBA title team.
This season, however, he has struggled to the tune of career-lows of 8.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in 41 games. He was benched for the final 12 games of his Cavs career and requested a buyout.
