But Gallinari for Bazemore works, add a pick and you're good to go
They can trade Whiteside for other players, even for Love straight up if they get the strange idea to play big big big

And FYI, Nurkic is injured so they are missing one of their most important player, so it's not a surprise that they're not contender at this moment, but that they can be one once he comes back, if he's fully healthy. And he may prefer to be traded to a team that turns into a contender with him, than a team already a contender without him...
