Kevin Love has made his move to the Miami Heat and he looks ready to play.
It was announced last week that the veteran star was parting ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers after years of sticking with them through the best and worst of times.
But just a few days after Cleveland let go of Love, he was already signing a new contract with the Heat.

On Monday night, a video of Love in the Heat’s practice gym was released online and it showed the player looking in fine form.
Again and again, Love sank three-pointers from the corner of the court.
He didn’t break a sweat and appeared very comfortable sinking shot after shot.
Love has said that he is ready to play hard and win and there is every indication he will do both of those things.
He doesn’t move like he used to or play for as many minutes but Love can still be a pivotal part of a team, especially for a squad’s second unit.
The Heat need his help.
They have been relatively quiet during the last offseason and trade deadline; Love is the biggest move they’ve made in some time.
The team has been slowly but surely climbing up the Eastern Conference standings and is right now in the running for the playoffs as the seventh seed.
They are hoping that Love’s inclusion will make the team more robust.
However, there are concerns that Love could encounter an injury that slows him down.
The Heat have a few aging stars who have run into several physical problems over the last few seasons.
The hope is that they can all stay healthy and strong as the postseason inches closer.NEXT: Heat Star Sits Out While Facing Multiple Trade Rumors
