It has been a fairly slow NBA news week. After the early hype and action of free agency, it was bound to drop off at some point. The story that seems to be gathering steam, though, is the Kevin Love trade to the Cavs.

Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reported Love has now requested a trade to Cleveland, making it slightly more likely he’ll be with the Cavs once Andrew Wiggins is able to be included in the trade. The Cavs must wait 30 days after Wiggins signed his contract before he can be traded, which means Wiggins can’t be traded prior to August 23

In the most likely package, it looks like it would be Anthony Bennett, Wiggins, and a first-round pick for Love.

While the trade, if it happens, would have no direct effect on the Portland Trail Blazers, the trade would have a widespread impact around the league and would indirectly affect the Blazers. Let’s explore a few ramifications of what Love heading to Minnesota would look like for the Blazers.
