Rumor 1: Kevin Love expects to be traded…Lakers?
Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon, The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd and ESPN’s Dave McMenamin talk all things Cavs at 92.3 The Fan Thursday, and there were plenty of nuggets to take away from their conversation.
Kevin Love was a big topic of discussion, with the biggest news being the five-time All-Star expects to traded this offseason.
Can you blame the guy?
Love’s probably been checking his alerts ever since coming to Cleveland in 2014. When LeBron wouldn’t put the guy in an Instagram post or would talk about him not fitting in, rumors dominated NBA talk.
Not even Jeff Bezos could’ve shipped this guy away any faster, yet somehow Love endured and is the last man standing among Cleveland’s “Big 3.”
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said the Cavs’ won’t blow up the squad, but Chris Sheridan of GetMoreSports.com wrote the Lakers are tossing around the idea of adding Love. The Lakers could always pass on Love and opt to acquire someone such as Damian Lillard.
For what it’s worth, Windhorst told WKNR 850-AM’s listening audience that Cavs’ vets have been told they should expect to return next season. Of course, Windy added that the situation could change.
So Love is a Cav, until he isn’t, which has pretty much been his status since after his first season with the Wine & Gold.
