    I can't imagine a trade package that they would be happy with. Cuz they ain't getting Simons or nurk etc. they are beggars at this point and they can choose from nas, trent jr., baze, hassan, picks etc.

    I do believe hassan is going to be a huge asset. I think he will come around to a better mind set and easily , easily have a double double and 2 plus blocks a game.

    cavs fans should be entertained by love's antics though.

    I think it's worth a shot though to get him but maybe not until the deadline.

    Are you Neil Olshey or Jody Allen? How do you know who they would be getting and who they're not?

    I'm guessing Jodi is more of a shopper than Paul was...could be a blue light special on aisle 4 that she just has to have

    I agree with you. I want to see how Baze and Whiteside perform for a few months, but obviously one of them would have to be included. IMO Zach and Baze would get it done but I would only offer Baze, Trent, and Skal and a protected 1st.

    I would imagine that Neil would like to have a two headed monster at center of Nurk and Whiteside so I think Baze is the likely candidate to be traded.

    Another thing to consider is would we want Love if it meant we can't afford Whiteside next summer? I realize we would hold his rights, but would he take Nurk money to stay? Or would he want more? If we think we would lose him over the summer then you might as well do a straight swap......but after Nurk gets back.

    I think that’s one thing no one really talks about. What if Whiteside just stays? Portland will have some money and he isn’t for everyone. Of course it would mean taking a backseat to Nurk, but if he really enjoys his time here and no one else pays up, why not?

    The sad part about this bump is that the "Cavs Nation" post is nothing more than a restatement of the CBSSports column referenced in the BlazersEdge post BGD linked to just 15 posts earlier in this same thread.

    I hate that this is what passes as journalism today.

    what is clear is that any team that goes for Love should carefully manage his minutes AKA load management. He played 22 games last year??? He needs to sit out a lot of easy games like Kawhi and Lebron will.

    What about the ones where it's easy to tell that they're going to lose, no matter who they put out on the floor?

    They cant deal him, they gave him that huge contract that did not make sense now they are stuck with him he would have been gone already if the rest of the league thought he was viable. We have Pau Gasol on a much more friendlier contract. His BBIQ is waaaaay better then Loves and will help us more then Love ever will at this stage of the game.

    He's as effective as an older David Lee. Could have value if he was paid the MLE and came off the bench.
