NBA Trade Rumors: Kevin Love to Toronto Raptors?

The Raptors showed some spunk in the Eastern Conference Finals before losing in six games, and it became clear this squad needs more depth in the front court and another player that can take some of the scoring pressure off the back court.

Speculation has management looking to add that depth in the upcoming draft, but the latest from Sportsnaut has suggested Toronto could be one of the teams interested in Kevin Love, who is supposedly on the trading block.

The 27-year-old averaged 16 points and 10 rebounds this past season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but his struggles during the playoffs have the organization stumped and if they fail to defeat Golden State, many now believe he will be moved this summer, despite being one of the best power forwards in the game.

Love had two big games against the Raptors in the playoffs, but has little else to show for his effort. A concussion did set the big man back and nine points and six boards in the finals aren’t the numbers of a star player, but his eight years in the NBA have been solid and this could be just a small scale setback.

The potential trade could have a first round pick this year, along with players Cory Joseph and Patrick Patterson headed to the Cavs’ for the former first round pick and while it will hurt the bench depth on the team, adding a player with good size in the paint that can rebound, plus another solid scoring option, could be just what this franchise needs to take that next step as the franchise looks for its first championship.
