Kevin Love could be named the Cleveland Cavaliers’ permanent starter at center this season, with Tristan Thompson coming off the bench, coach Tyronn Lue said after practice Saturday.

Love said he has played “quite a bit” of time at the 5 with the Cavs’ first unit through the first week of training camp.

Cleveland has dabbled with Love in that position in the past when it goes with a small-ball lineup — and it had particular success with it in a first-round sweep of center Andre Drummond and the Detroit Pistons in the 2016 playoffs.
