Pels supposed intrigued with Kevin Love still
LINK
quote:


The New Orleans Pelicans, Atlanta Hawks and several others have interest in Love, even with his four-year contract extension about to kick in.

And what makes teams such as the Pelicans and Hawks so intriguing is they each have lottery picks. Former Cavs general manager David Griffin and current GM Koby Altman are tight. Griffin and the Pelicans have both the Nos. 1 and 4 overall picks. The Cavs have the fifth. Griffin supposedly loves Love, as relayed by Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com.

Remember, it was Griffin who traded Andrew Wiggins for Love back in 2014.

“The thinking on Love to New Orleans is Griffin decides to pair top pick Zion Williamson and all the young players he added from the Lakers (Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart) with Love and returning guard Jrue Holiday and make a move for the playoffs within the next two seasons,” Pluto wrote.

Altman and the Cavs would have to take back some salary should they trade Love, but they may be willing to do that for more lottery picks. The Pelicans hold the fourth overall and the Hawks the eighth and 10th.

That contract is just plain godawful and Cleveland should be paying US to take it.

The Pels are rumored to do everything under the sun right now.

This part is the crucial part, not one to be glossed over. How much money? How much in draft capital?

If Cleveland wants to eat $10 million per year for No. 4, what say you?

There isn’t much money to send out.

The only long term contracts we have at the moment are Jrue, Ball, Hart, and Zion, none of which we want to move.

Moore ($8m) and Hill ($13) are expiring.

Save 10 mil a year and trade pick 4 to them?

Why would we want Love? He's not on our timeline and Moore and Hill off the books next year

HELL. TO. DA. NAW.

essentially its boiling down to having Love those extra 3 years. I'd venture to say its just way too risky. Its a move that can cripple our open future.

Griff is linking us to everything. Playing the game. I hope. Love or moving back to take 2 picks this year is gross.

Out of everything I have heard trade wise so far, this is by far the worst option in my opinion. Can we please fast forward to draft night and pick garland so all these rumors can end.

I’ll be happy to take Love for Hill, Moore and their #5 pick, only way that happens.

I think there's an outside chance Morant is there at 4. Possibly RJ. Zion is the only obvious pick right now. I think Garland would be the best fit if he really is wowing people in his workouts.
