Saw a trade that was:
Pick # 58
2023 2nd Round Pick
Would the Cavs even do that trade? It is doubtful, but they could convince themselves that they are getting assets for shedding Love (who's contract would only be on the books for two seasons) and they get something (Former Top 10 Pick Toppin) for a player they weren't planning on bringing back when he's a FA after next season.
Would still give us the space to go grab someone to pair with the young core.
Add maybe Lonzo to the Knicks, bring back Rose and add some more depth in the front court behind Mitch.
We could trot out to start
with Rose/IQ/Love coming in off the bench.
How much better is that team than the one that was just ran out of the first round? Not to sold on Love staying healthy but if he did he'd be decent in that second unit. On top of that we get to still keep all our firsts.
I mentioned this type of trade in this thread (or draft thread) a few days ago without Love. I like it either way.
Sexton can play the 2 and we know what he brings offensively. The low cap hold this year helps us sign more guys this offseason. Adding Love is fine. He be good off the bench and preserved. Replaced Obi and he’s playoff proven.
Signing a guy like Lonzo fills the lineup out with length, playmaking and shot creation. Makes life easier for RJ & Mitch. Defensive.
I think taking Love’s contract should be enough. If not the 2 2nds then throw in that Mavs 1st in 2023.
Use the rest on Rose & Bullocks or Oubre
