Kevin Love is once again in the center of some NBA trade rumors. Now it is the Washington Wizards that are rumored to be interested in acquiring Cleveland's power forward. In exchange, the Wizards are willing to let go of Bradley Beal. There are some reasons why this deal would be advantageous to the Wizards. But will the Cleveland Cavaliers benefit if Love is not included in their roster?
Rumors Are Persistently Mentioning Love
Kevin Love has persistently figured in a number of NBA trade rumors in the off-season and even now that the 2016-2017 NBA conference is in its full swing. The Washington Wizards are reportedly open to swapping Bradley with Love for a very important reason. It seems that if this deal pushes through, the tiff between him and teammate John Wall will be finally stopped.
The rift between the two has sparked some problems with the jelling of the team. John Wall has admitted that he has a problem playing with Beal. He was heard saying that he and Beal "dislike each other on the court." This comment has sparked the NBA trade rumors that have woven several scenarios of what can happen.
If ever a trade will happen between the Cavaliers and the Wizards, this would be the most likely scenario: the Wizards would get Love, and Mike Dunleavy, while the Cavs would acquire Marcin Gortat, Markieff Morris, and Beal.
The Heat Was Rumored To Be Interested In Getting Kevin Love
Early this month, there were also NBA trade rumors that suggested that the Miami Heat was interested in acquiring Love. If the Cavs are really open to trading Love, will the Heat also knock on Cleveland's door? It appears that the Cavs will let go off Love if they have really proven that he is an awkward fit for the team's roster. This aspect has been the subject of rumors that started in the 2016 NBA Finals.
