Portland Trail Blazers receives: Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson

Cleveland Cavaliers receives: Hassan Whiteside, Kent Bazemore, and the Portland Trail Blazers 2020 first-round pick

This trade would solve a lot of problems for both the Portland Trail Blazers and Cleveland Cavaliers, who certainly have more questions than answers at this point in the season.

The Blazers would get two really good players to add to their rotation in exchange for two expiring contracts and a first-round pick. This would be a great return for the Blazers as they could build their team around Damian Lillard, Kevin Love, and C.J. McCollum and still potentially re-sign Thompson this summer to a more team-friendly deal.

The Cavaliers get two expiring contracts which will only help them tank. They also turn Love and Thompson (two disgruntled veterans) into an asset, which is all you can hope for in their situation.
