Rumor: Pelicans, Thunder interested in Cavs’ Kevin Love
 

 
The New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder have shown a level of interest in acquiring Cleveland Cavaliers injured forward Kevin Love, according to ESPN analyst Mike Fratello (via Sam Amico of Amico Hoops). Both teams are in different situations, but could use a stretch 4 to help them reach their desired potential.

As former coach and current broadcast analyst Mike Fratello said on FOX Sports Ohio’s “Cavs in the Paint,” teams such as the New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder would love to pair Love with their current stars.

The Pelicans are in dire need of adding another star or potentially risk losing talisman player Anthony Davis for nothing in free agency, or forced to abandon hope and trade him before the deadline — a more unlikely scenario with less than a month left before Feb. 7.

The Thunder are third in a ruthless Western Conference and have now fallen two games behind the Golden State Warriors in the race for the coveted top spot after losing their last three games. Adding Love — who has by now grown used to being a secondary and even tertiary player in the roster — could pair seamlessly with two active ball-handlers in Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

The Cavs gave Love a four-year, $120 million contract extension, which will kick in next season. League executives have argued that Love and John Wall’s huge contracts are the two most untradable deals in the NBA today.

Trading Love would mean a full push of the reset button for the Cavs, who will likely look for a cornucopia of a*sets to enhance their rebuild, along with likely taking on J.R. Smith’s contract, among other permutations.

I'd like a Love and Westbrook reunion...He would fit in well there at the 4 with OKC too.

You’d have to include Roberson tho.

I might be wrong but I think you or someone else called him an elite defensive player

Pelicans in desperation man... they don’t need another 4-5 on the roster... Davis-Randle-Mirotic is way more than enough. Get a 3.

There is a 0 percent chance they would give up either of them for Love.

Pelicans better not take on that damn contract when we can resign niko for waaaaay cheaper. They are basically the say player at this point.

based on love being a defensive liability, I'd take 4 they already have.

Adams
Grant
PG
Westbrook

Grant really come into is own this year and I'd take his length, defense and finishing ability over Loves shooting and rebounds. Plus, Grant is shooting 35% from three, so he isn't all that bad from there either.

They would most likely have to get rid of grant to get love and I wouldn't do it.

I thought Grant playing at the 4 was an upgrade. I haven't watched OKC this year but I see their defensive numbers have improved since Melo left. I do recognize their 3 point shooting is horrible but couldn't they just sign a shooter or two buyout season like Philly did last year. Correct me if I'm wrong, Grant is for OKC what Tucker is for HOU?

I question if this is planted by CLE to create a market for Love. 4 years 120 mil after this season is a lot to take on. Everybody knows NO is desperately trying to upgrade their roster so I could imagine NO will be in a lot of trade rumors.

I don't think NO will do it. I think they'll get Bazemore. I'm hoping Ross from ORL but can't deny these Baze to NO rumors have been going on for a while plus you got Ferry who signed him in ATL in NO's FO. Something like Hill and a 1st for Ross/Bazemore.

Love on OKC would be amazing if they can keep (grant and schroeder) Westbrook, PG and Adams are obviously not going to be a part of any deal for Love.

Grant has been amazing this year. Super athletic, defends 5 spots, dunks everything and is now hitting the 3 at a respectable rate. sh*t, if he just continues to improve his development might be enough to take them over the top

Love to New orleans doesn't make the most sense but It might work given that he can actually. He can play inside or out and offer the team more spacing and offensive versatility.

Grant is playing great this year for them at the 4, they just lost Nerlin noel tho and idk for how long. They need some sort of another big and if he can stretch the floor then that’s great.
They need another pf also, grant can go to the 3 and George to the 2 or vice versa. Grant can be a spark off the bench too, Patrick Patterson gonna have to play center with nerlan out they don’t have many bigs.

The comparison between grant and tucker isn’t bad . Except tucker is a lil smaller, been playing like that longer then just this year and can shoot the 3 a lil better. His defense might be somewhat better , just don’t get as many blocks as grant possibly cause he isn’t as athletic and long as grant.
