What does a new four-year contract extension mean for Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Love, who could have become an unrestricted free agent next summer had he declined a $25.6 million player option, instead replaced that option with an extension that will start at $28.9 million for 2019-20 and add an additional three years for $95 million in new money total.

The timing of the extension is surprising as Cleveland determines what direction to take after LeBron James' departure for the Los Angeles Lakers. So how will a newly extended Love fit in?
