The buyout market in the NBA is about to heat up.

Terrence Ross, Dewayne Dedmon, Reggie Jackson, Danny Green, and Justin Holiday have all already been picked up after buyouts, but the biggest names still haven’t been scooped up yet.

Russell Westbrook and Kevin Love are expected to be bought out and Patrick Beverly and Serge Ibaka are already on the market.

Despite still waiting to get his buyout, it seems there is already a front runner to land Love.

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, the Miami Heat have emerged as the leaders to sign Love when he becomes available.

There have been reports that the Cavs don’t want to let this happen.

However, according to NBA CBA expert Larry Coon, there isn’t really anything the Cavs can do to stop Love from going wherever he wants after a buyout.

Love was benched by the Cavs almost a month ago after going through a rough shooting stretch in January. However, he could still have value for the right team.

Love remains a strong rebounder and is still a big who can stretch the floor.

He could be a solid contributor for the Miami Heat if they end up picking him up.
