It looks like the front office will not take any action on him as a result.

It does seem to make some sense that the five-time All-Star is upset with the organization. Just two seasons after reaching the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row, the Cavs sit at 10-25, the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference.
Cleveland has been trying to trade Love, but to no avail so far. The challenge is that he’s in just the first year of a four-year, $120 million contract and hasn’t played in over 70 games since the 2015-16 season.
Still, it’s clear that Love, 31, can offer some significant value to a team that’s contending or looking to contend for the NBA championship. He remains one of the best rebounders in the league as well as a dependable 3-point shooter.
