NBA trade candidate: Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers
Trade confidence meter: 4/10
It seems to be a yearly tradition to see Kevin Love in the mix or at least in the rumor mill at the NBA Trade Deadline. Whether the Cleveland Cavaliers have ever intended to trade him remains to be seen, but there’s at least a chance that they could move him at this year‘s deadline.
The Cavs are building towards something good, but they’re still a year or two away from being a true playoff contender in the Eastern Conference. The door for a contender to swoop in to snag him remains true.
Love is still highly productive even though he may not be in the prime of his career anymore. He’s a good rebounder and a good enough defender where he could play an active role on any team looking to add to their depth ahead of the trade deadline.
Ideal destination: Utah Jazz
