Those in favor of trading Wiggins will counter by pointing out that Love, a three-time All-Star, is unquestionably one of the ten best players in the league right now. A core of James, Irving and Love would make the Cavs heavy favorites in the East from day one, and Dan Gilbert can’t afford to waste James’ prime years.
Mike Krzyzewski, who has coached Kevin Love on Team USA, thinks the Cavs shouldn’t think twice about dealing Wiggins. Coach K told John Feinstein that he would make the trade without “one second of hesitancy.”
Via CBS Radio:
“He’s a double-double guy, but he’s a double-double guy that can spread the court. There aren’t many double-double guys, if any, who spread the court. He can go inside and outside…. No pun intended, but I love Kevin Love.”
“You look at LeBron and you have the best player in the world. He’s 29. I’m not saying he’s at the end of his career, but he’s in the second half of his career, let’s put it that way. And in the first half of his career, he was becoming a great player. He was a great talent becoming a great player. That takes time – just like if Wiggins or Bennett are going to be great, it’s not going to happen right now. They’re great talents. LeBron is a great player right now.”
