If there is one player who knows something about being involved in a blockbuster trade, it is Kevin Love. He has a chance to be part of another big trade involving a contender if the Cleveland Cavaliers feel the need to unload their star. One NBA team to watch could be the Miami Heat.
Cleveland is a roster constructed in many different ways. They used their first-round pick in the draft on Isaac Okoro to team up with Collin Sexton and Darius Garland. They have plenty of talent in the backcourt.
The Cavaliers’ talent is also deep in the frontcourt but they have two aging stars in Love and Andre Drummond. There have allegedly been talks between Cleveland and Drummond about an extension but nothing has happened yet. This leaves Love’s status up in the air.
The Heat seems like a perfect trade destination for Love. He knows a thing or two about being traded to a championship-ready team and joining two stars. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo were able to lead Miami to the NBA Finals last season and they could look to add another piece to get over the hump even further.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat have a chance to get together for a semi-blockbuster trade that would impact both sides. Here is what a potential deal might look like.
