Recent play and minutes would suggest that Al might be the guy that stays if one is moved this summer. Darko and Al are playing more and there seems to be sentiment to keep that going. Rambis seems to have a lot of pull with personnel decisions and it's obvious that Love isn't his favorite at this time.
You can count me as someone who would prefer Love. I think he brings more overall play to the table than Al conceding that he's far from perfect. I do recognize though that dealing Al would pose challenges too. Darko actually complements Al a little better than he does Love given how Darko and Love's passing overlaps a little.
So...what are some realistic options in terms of what we could get back for Love?
The obvious would be us packaging him with our pick to move up for Turner/Wall if we don't land 1 or 2. A steep price, but one could argue we need a star at all costs.
If we win the lottery, could we use Love and something else like Flynn, Charlotte/Utah picks, Pekovic or even Rubio to get the #2?
Love for Harden and Ibaka? Love seems like the kind of guy Presti would love.
In a package for Gay? For Mayo? I don't really want to be the team overpaying Gay. Mayo is interesting, but I'm not sure how special he's going to be. I'd probably try to get a guy like K. Azuibuke for less as opposed to Mayo.
Would Love get us any closer to Granger than Al?
