Cleveland Cavaliers big-men Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson were rumored that they may be on their team’s trading block.
Based on the article published by Chris Fedor on Cleveland.com website that there are more than a few players in the Cavs organization felt that their main office wants to make a “big shakeup” and part of it is to trade their two main assets before the trade deadline which is set of February 6, 2020.
This season, Love is averaging 17.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.9 assists. He is a five-time all-star, a rebounding leading leader back in 2011 and won a championship in 2016.
Love is also a well-proven shooter who can knockout three-pointers at any given time. His skills are one of the most sought in the league as he plays stretch-four.
Thompson, on the other hand, is the typical low-post banger. Other teams that wanted to upgrade or add more toughness inside the paint may be the new destination of Thompson.
Love, Thompson and Matthew Dellavedova are the three remaining players in Cavs squad that won the title in 2016 along with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
The Cavs’ last outing was versus the visiting Golden State Warriors where they got defeated via a blowout, 112-131.
According to Warriors Glen Robinson III who was a former player of Cavaliers head coach John Beilein in their Michigan’s day, they were playing against a team that looks like frustrated. They used their opponent’s weakness to boost their chances and get the victory.
“I played for Beilein and I know how frustrated he can get,” Robinson said. “We just tried to bring energy coming out of the half. Draymond did a great job talking to the team at halftime — just getting us going. I thought all of us did a great job tonight. When you got a team, a coach, frustrated like that, you got a good chance of winning.”
Cleveland is tied with the Atlanta Hawks for having the worst record in the Eastern Conference with 13-37 slate.
