Kevin Love intends to join Heat after clearing waivers

Kevin Love plans to sign with the Miami Heat after clearing waivers, his agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Love's expectation is that he can play a sizable role in the Heat's frontcourt rotation as they push into the Eastern Conference playoffs. Love also talked with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Love agreed to a contract buyout with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday. The 34-year-old joined the Cavs in 2014 and was the last remaining link to the 2016 team that won the NBA title and ended the city's 52-year pro sports championship drought.
