Cleveland looks to trade #1 for Love (or scoring forward)

10

"The Cavs have acknowledged that they will listen to offers for the top pick, and rival executives say they are looking for an established scoring forward in return. Should they keep the top pick, the expectation is that they will go big. The backcourt is locked in, with the top pick in 2011, Kyrie Irving, and the fourth pick in '12, Dion Waiters. Expect the Cavs to snap up Noel, a 7-foot defensive menace who will solidify the middle, either at power forward or center, and fortify a defense that ranked last in the NBA in field-goal defense (47.6) this season. SI.com" "The Cleveland Cavaliers are fielding calls from everywhere, but the team they’d really like to to make a deal with is Minnesota. And if the Timberwolves are willing to surrender Kevin Love, the No. 1 pick is available to them, sources tell SheridanHoops.com." If Cavs can't get love. Maybe they would be willing to take an all-star power forward (Lee). for the 1st pick. BTW, if the Cavs were down (wishful thinking) and our owners were down (wishful thinking given Lacob's mancrush) then this would open the gates to Howard, even with Jefferson and Biedrins weighing us down. Honestly, I might do it for one of Cleveland's less exciting picks.
