The Mavs seem to be willing to move Porzingis. If the opportunity arises, should the Cavs trade Love for Porzingis (one additional year of contract at almost the same salary)?

There can be a trade, ether a straight-up, or with multiple players, and some picks might be involved:

Cavs get:
Porzingis, expiring James Johnson

Mavs get:
Love, Cedi, expiring JaVale

I'm sure we'd have to give up at least a pick, but what about:

Cavaliers get:
Porzingis, James Johnson and Dwight Powell

Mavericks get:
Andre Drummond and Kevin Love

This makes KP and Love salaries a virtual wash for 2021 free agency, while wiping out the additional ~$11M of Powell's salary. Could the Mavs do more with an additional $11M in cap space? Probably.

If the Mavs are trading Porzingis, they'll most likely want Drummond's expiring instead of Love. I think KP's value is pretty low so Koby might be able to get him for cheap if that's the route he wants to take. Dumping Porzingis without getting salary for next year would be a win for the Mavs.
