Poacher from Cleveland Cavs fan here, and I'm just trying to get a gauge on if you guys think Love might be available this summer, and if so, for what price?
From my perspective, CLE should offer every draft pick and player not named Kyrie for Love. We've heard his name mentioned for at least a year now about not being completely happy and potentially available as a trade acquisition and after another underwhelming season without making the playoffs and a coaching change, I'm wondering if the smoke will finally turn to fire.
Do you think our first rounder this year (~9th overall), Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett, Tyler Zeller, Jarrett Jack, Anderson Varejao, Sergey Karasev would be enough to force a trade? ...or less players and more picks. We have ORLs 2nd rounder this draft, then depending on how they finish, due to protections, we have MEM and MIA future first rounders, and all of our original picks, except our 2nd rounder this year and CHI can swap 1st next year with top 15 protections.
Just curious what you guys think.... Will Love be moved? Would CLE be able to put together a good enough package? Would Love mind playing in CLE? Would he sign in CLE long term if it was a core of Kyrie, Lebron and Love?
