The Cleveland Cavaliers have officially announced the signing of forward Kevin Love.

Last week Love posted a video on The Player's Tribune announcing it's official and why he chose to stay in northeast Ohio. The two sides agreed to a five-year, $110 million deal. 

"“From the moment Kevin arrived, he has shared our plan for winning in Cleveland. Today confirms our mutual belief in that vision,” said Cavaliers GM David Griffin. “As one of the truly elite players in the NBA, Kevin’s value and impact was critical to our success this past season and we are thrilled that he will be part of our core group for many years to come.”

After losing in the Finals Love said there was a sense of "unfinished business." He said after losing Game 6 and watching the Golden State Warriors he realized he wanted to be back here. 

He talked with his parents and he says they told him, "We just want you to be happy."

Love said he also talked with LeBron James after meeting with the Cavs. You, remember the poolside meeting?

"We came to a really good place and agreed on a lot of things so that was also a very big deal when you're talking to the best player in the world," said Love. 

Love said every time he looked at the different scenarios he always came back to Cleveland where he would have a good chance of winning championships.
