Even though the Clippers have one of the best rosters in NBA with Kahwi Leonard and Paul George leading the squad, they would still want some upgrades before the 2020 NBA February deadline. La Clippers wants Kevin Love to pair up with Kawhi Leonard which would give them an advantage over the Lakers and LeBron James.
Trio of Kevin Love, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George
Los Angeles Clippers are no doubt one of the top contenders for NBA 2020 title but it won’t harm in having some more reinforcements. Kevin Love would be a great third option alongside Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and the three superstars could form a powerful trio. Love is great at scoring and rebounding and his experience would prove very efficient at the power forward position.
Kevin Love also has a strong offensive presence and it would take the huge pressure from the shoulders of Leonard and George. Kevin Love at the age of 31 years has an average of 16.1 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists while 44.2 percent from the field shots and 37.8 percent three-pointers from beyond the arc.
Kevin Love would give an Edge LeBron James
Kevin Love has another great quality where he can play very well with other NBA superstars in his team, evident from his experience with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland Cavaliers. It is also the main reason why the LA Clippers will be willing to spend big assets for signing Love as he can give secret insights to stop LeBron James in the big games.
There are high chances that Lakers vs Clippers end up as the final for NBA Western Conference and it would be a big advantage in that situation. The Clippers have to offer a minimum trade package of Montrezl Harrell, Landry Shamet, and a future second-round pick to the Cavaliers for getting Kevin Love.
