As long as we live in a world where just today, July 30th, I read a Bleacher Report shit article suggesting Love straight up for Hasaan Whiteside is "mutually beneficial for both teams" because of cap space provided next year for the Cavaliers, where others currently value Love doesn't matter. While I don't really think the front office handled the JR Smith contract correctly, I hope they remain much more aware of Love's potential increase in trade value simply by playing a healthy year under a coach who created effective offensive game plans. Reports of what other teams will offer for Love are objectively low ball as long as Love shows he is healthy and in a good system again. GMs who sell low shouldn't expect to be GMs anymore within the end of the calendar year.I tend to agree. I think Love made a soft trade demand (ie a request to be moved to a contender). However, just as they overestimated the value of JR’s contract, they seem to have overestimated Love’s value. I think he will be moved eventually, once they come to grips with how the league views & values Love. In a league that values cap flexibility, Love’s contract, along with his injury history, will not make him easy to move, at least for what the Cavs are looking for in return.
