Trading Kevin Love to the Rockets would be great for the Cavs and Love. It would allow Love to make one last Playoff push to end his career and it would free up cap space for the Cavs. Here's how the trade would look:
On the daily Locked On Rockets Podcast, host Jackson Gatlin discussed a 3-team trade scenario that would bring Love to Houston.
Jackson Gatlin: This seems to happen every summer with the Houston Rockets. Fans want to try and pair James Harden with Kevin Love, the former Minnesota big man, the guy who was the third point in the triangle between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving during that Cleveland championship.
Here’s the trade proposal for the Rockets to receive Kevin Love. It’s a three team trade proposal: Rockets receive Kevin Love, the Timberwolves receive Eric Gordon and Danuel House Jr., and the Cavaliers receive James Johnson, a 2020 2nd-round pick from the Timberwolves, a 2022 2nd-round pick from the Timberwolves, and then Austin Rivers on a sign-and-trade deal.
This would be a good trade for all involved and the Cavs could take Toppin at 5 in the draft. We also get the 33rd pick in the draft. We can take big man Daniel Oturu if he's available or Filip Petrusev from Gonzonga. Any thoughts?
