But given the fact that Kevin Love still has an average of 15.7 points and 10.5 rebounds, 43.8 percent from the field and 35.4 percent three-pointers, many of the NBA teams will be interested in paying up for the 34-year-old Cavaliers star. Here are the NBA deals roundup for Kevin Love and his potential trade deals with Portland Trail Blazers, Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland Trail Blazers are interested in Kevin Love for a long time and they need someone to support the duo for Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum from the other side of the court. Kevin Love going to the Trail Blazers won’t come off as a surprise and the only thing to complicate is their recent deal with Carmelo Anthony. But Portland might have planned for something and the duo of Kevin Love and Carmelo Anthony can be killer for the NBA 2019-20 season.
Boston Celtics have been eyeing to get Kevin Love even before he became a part of the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise. The Celtics could use Love as they need someone to replace Kyrie Irving and make their position stronger in the NBA Eastern Conference. Boston would have to move Gordon Hayward or come up with some lucrative offer, then only the Trail Blazers will seal the deal.
Phoenix Suns are also looking to add another superstar in their team along with Devin Booker and Kevin Love could be a perfect fit. The Suns have Tyler Johnson ($19.2 million) and Frank Kaminsky ($4.7 million) along with other future draft picks to make the deal possible. Portland is under the rebuilding process and would most likely trade Love to whichever team offers them maximum money or future assets.
