Report: Cavaliers hope to trade Kevin Love
The Cavalier are looking into trading Collin Sexton.
And apparently Kevin Love, too.
Love might also want Cleveland to trade him.
But what team wants the highly paid 32-year-old who struggles to provide production to his team?
Maybe the Cavaliers have become more realistic about Love’s value. A couple years ago, they were seeking a first-rounder for him while other teams wanted a first-rounder for taking him. Love’s brief stint with Team USA only further discouraged.
The Cavs can keep Love. As they slowly rebuild, there isn’t really the urgency to unload his contract and spend that money elsewhere. But that carries the risk of Love’s attitude continuing to worsen.
A buyout could make most sense, though that depends how much money Love is willing to sacrifice to choose a new team.
