Cavs Open To Trading Kevin Love After LeBron James Joins Lakers

  • This time there should be only the sadness of parting

In case you've avoided nearly every aspect of the Internet (To be fair, my favorite comic book websites don't seem to care), LeBron James has left the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

A report from just a week ago seemed to indicate that the Cavs had meant to avoid a total rebuild.

The LeBron James-less Cavs roster is, probably one of the two or three worst in the Eastern Conference. Or will Kolby Altman try and add another All Star to play alongside Kevin Love? With LeBron James gone, they're no longer a title contender.

Per The Athletic's Jason Lloyd, multiple sources around the National Basketball Association have insisted the Cavs "are indeed open" to dealing their All-Star center. "It makes ideal sense to deal him now".

LeBron James to become a free agent
Within the hour of signing James, the team signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a second one-year deal, per ESPN's Chris Haynes . If he does, he'll be in line to earn a smidge over $35 million in 2018-19 and then around $38 million the following season.

The fans at Luzhniki, who had patiently watched their team spend two hours staying tight and rarely coming forward, exploded. Sergio Ramos is teary-eyed, Andres Iniesta , who has played his last World Cup match, is gutted.

Love's contract off the books would give them a lot more flexibility moving forward, and that will only increase when JR Smith and Tristan Thompson's hefty deals eventually expire too. Cavs have a top 10 protected draft pick in 2019, so they have every incentive to want to clean shop and tank for a high draft pick. "Otherwise, they'll lose it to the Atlanta Hawks as compensation for the Kyle Korver deal".

Without both James and Love, the 2018-19 season would likely be dramatically different than the previous four seasons.

Trading Love might not be a simple process.

This would represent a drastic change in approach for the Cavs heading into next season.
