Kevin Love will not be a member of the 2019 free agent class. The five-time All-Star has signed a four-year contract extension to remain in Cleveland, the team announced Tuesday.

Love appeared in 59 games last season, averaging 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game while shooting 41.5 percent from deep. In the 2018 Playoffs, the forward recorded nine double-doubles in 21 games, averaging 14.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.

Love was a member of the 2016 championship team that came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Golden State Warriors, successfully ending Cleveland's 52-year major-league title drought. In his four seasons with the Cavs, the 29-year-old has averaged 17.1 points and 10.0 rebounds per game.
