The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t been much competition for the Golden State Warriors in the first two games of the NBA Finals, and if the series continues like this, changes could be coming in the offseason.
Much of the question marks will surround LeBron James, who has a player option for the 2016-17 season, but forward Kevin Love might be the one on his way out of Cleveland, an NBA source told The Vertical’s Chris Mannix.
“If they go out like this, I’m betting on a Kevin Love auction.” the source said.
Mannix added: “If changes are demanded this offseason, Love will be the asset pushed in trades needed to make them.”
Trade rumors are nothing new for Love, who suffered a concussion in Game 2 on Sunday night, although he signed a five-year, $113,211,750 contract this past offseason to stay with the Cavaliers. But that might not stop Cleveland from putting him on the trade block if things don’t get better.
