By that logic, may as well just trade him for Iguodala and the Warriors picks in 2021 and 2023, they may be awful then.
If the Warriors would do that, I might make that trade. The thing is, the Warriors would say no because you have no idea where your team will be in 4-6 years. Plus, Paul George probably isn't worth two picks by that time. Its what made Miami giving Phoenix an unprotected first rounder for Dragic so risky.
Kevin Love is the better asset right now for sure, but I'm not sure I wouldn't rather have a shot at an unprotected pick. Especially for a player that's leaving anyway. Partially because I think the Cavs could easily be a wasteland in a couple of years.
