New York Times Marc Stein mentioned this in one of his articles that the Nuggets longstanding fondness with Love may trigger this deal.
Denver has maintained a longstanding fondness for Love, which makes you wonder if the Nuggets will be tempted to make a win-now play for the All-Star forward amid their wholly unexpected rise to the top of the West. – Marc Stein (NY Times)
Yet, for now, Love is untouchable until the January 24, 2019. That is one of the agreements in the contract he signed prior to the start of the 2018-19 NBA season according to the report.
Currently, Love is nursing his toe injury which needed to undergo a surgery.
With the post-LeBron era, Love should be leading them back at least in the playoffs but watching him cheering his teammates from the bench, it appears that it won’t happen soon.
The Cavs are currently at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings having an 8-29 slate.
For the Nuggets on the other hand, they’re one of the surprising team this season and currently holds the number one spot of the Western Conference.
They were able to beat the defending champion, the Golden State Warriors taking hold the number one spot.
Trading Love to their side is a clear boost to their team but it’s up to the management of Denver Nuggets if they wanted to break their current successful roster.
Acquiring Love won’t come cheap, it requires big names from their team to complete the deal.
