    I fail to see what's interesting about it

    Maybe if you could provide a blurry pic ?

    They traded for him right before he became an RFA, seems obvious they would retain him

    It will be hilarious if Harrell gets traded to make this exciting move happen, hahaha.

    Is there any possible way Russ could end up with the Clippers? Now that would be crazy.

    Hehe. The Blazers will have to run really really fast because George and Kawhi will be running away from them.

    NBA trade block: Russell Westbrook, Kyle Lowry, Kevin Love among 12 big-name players that could be moved

    At some point, the Cavs have to trade Love, don't they? They're not even close to a playoff team with him, and they owe him north of $28 million in each of the next four years. Love can still be worth that money on a team of consequence, but for how long? He'll be 31 by the start of next season. The fact that Love is locked up for four years, albeit at a pretty steep price, could be a selling point as a team won't have to give up good assets for a rental.

    The Portland Trail Blazers continue to make a ton of sense. If they were willing to put Zach Collins, Anfernee Simons and/or Nassir Little in a deal, and maybe a future first-round pick, Cleveland would have to listen. That's a lot to give up, but Portland is right there. Love would make them a legit title contender.

    Love would also make sense for the Boston Celtics, who have the assets and a need for a shooting big to replace what they lost when Al Horford left for Philly. If the Golden State Warriors end up moving D'Angelo Russell (who we'll get to), Love would be a good positional fit next to Draymond Green and Kevon Looney, who could cover for his defensive weaknesses while Love at least somewhat replaces the lost Kevin Durant firepower.

    Bottom line, Love is still really good. He can help a championship team. He's locked up for four years and the Cavs really have no use for him. This is another deal that feels inevitable.

    That would be a horrible deal. No way it happens unless Olshey is a blithering idiot.

    I wouldn't give up a lot for Love, but I'd probably give a Little.

    I’d definitely be down to have Livingston coming off of the bench.
