Love had an off night and the rest of the team looked annoyed that he kept shooting. One of the concerns I had when we traded G. Hill is that it left us without a guard who facilitates. I think Clarkson is who he is at this point and Sexton has a way to go in terms of making his teammates better.

If the Cavs are going to keep Love, then they should really try to maximize his on-the-court value. In addition to finding a guard who can make a timely entry pass, they need to have set plays responding to the eventual double teams. It's kind of infuriating that Love gets doubled in the post and there still isn't an immediate counter from the Cavs. It's been four years and it's pretty basic basketball.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

I think that both Ja and Barrett would really help the Cavs in that area. Hopefully we can walk out of this draft with a top 3 pick and get an immediate impact player.
