Also Love would be amazing in PDX playing with a leader like Dame and for his hometown. Only ways it happens is if he agrees to a buy out though. Zero Defense but a Love Melo forward rotation would be great for spacing. CJ can go, idk where or for who, but I’m done with him.
On the minimum after a buyout, sure we can try him out. But overall, Love is the wrong way to go for this team. He solves no real issues and actually makes our defense somehow worse. The only way Lillard/CJ combo will work is with defenders backing them up. Teams running a puck and role on CJ or Dame with Love’s man and Kanter on weakside defense is a bigger recipe for disaster. Nurkic will probably break more carrying the defensive load of the front court consisting of him, Kanter, and Melo. If Nurkic misses any games, a rotation of Melo, Love, and Kanter is arguably worse on defense than Dame/CJ/Simons in the backcourt.
I said CJ can go. Simons needs to go too. We need a real back up PG that can defend. I really wish we didn’t trade GT, even though Powell is ok, GT had that edge that chip on his shoulder that helped us so much at the start of the season. Lillard, GT, Covington, Love, Nurkic would have a nice balance with Melo and Rondo off the bench, that would’ve been way better than what we’re doing now.
