Kevin Love could be on the trade block

Share This Post

It was reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski last night that the Cleveland Cavaliers are open to offers for star man Kevin Love. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, Love has been linked with a trade from the moment that LeBron James left the cavs in 2018, however the tricky part is figuring out which team might finally pony up and pay the price.

Love is having a good season, averaging 16.7 points and 10.7 rebounds a game, output which could most certainly help almost any contender. There have been a number of teams linked with Love in the past, looking at the Celtics, Trail Blazers and the Denver Nuggets. But there is also expected to be interest from a wide range of contenders both in the West and in the East.

Into the second year of his five year max extension with the Cavs, Kevin Love is still a more than capable player who is able to play at the four or five and space the floor well. He is averaging 37% from three point range this season on just shy of six attempts per game.

The big issue with trading for Love is taking on his contract, including this season Love is owed $120 million over four years and $90 million over the next three seasons. For a player that will be earning nearly $30 million at age 34, it could be seen as a bit of a risk for teams to take on.

There’s also the matter of Cleveland’s asking price, as the Cavs are rebuilding they’re likely going to want a mix of picks and young players in exchange for an ageing Kevin Love on a big contract, though they’re likely going to need to eat some larger contracts in exchange. It will be interesting to see what teams are willing to give up for the former All-Star.

If Love is traded it likely won’t be until after December 15th, after which point all players that signed a new deal in free agency become available for trade discussions and moves.
