Perhaps the two best free agents this summer are LeBron James and Kevin Love. LeBron James is overwhelmingly likely to re-up with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Love has consistently indicated a desire to return to Cleveland, but there have been whispers all season that he may be open to leaving. It was reported recently that LeBron James would not make a pitch to Love to convince him to stay in Cleveland.

This wouldn't necessarily be a problem, were it the case. NBA players respect the free agency process. Regardless of whether or not they are close friends, James and Love both understand that the other are great players, and know that they have to do what is best for themselves.

On the other hand, we have this, from Jensen Karp, who writes for Rolling Stone magazine:

It sounds like James is in Los Angeles to help run one of his Nike camps. Kevin Love spends a lot of time there in the offseason.

I'd guess that they aren't talking contracts or anything like that really. It's nice to see that they are hanging out, though. A lot of probably pointless talk revolved around whether or not Kevin Love was a good social fit for the Cavs this year. It doesn't look like it's that bad.
