TRADE: Nurk and Covington for Kevin Love

This trade works on Trade Machine. Yes, we take on some salary here but the gamble is worth it.

Gamble is the key word for this post.

We can gamble and go get a proven all-star. Before you say Love is washed up, I remind you that he teased us with a 30 point, 14 rebound performance the last game of the regular season in May.

Love is a better passer than RoCo and Nurk. Better shooter/scorer/post up player. Better rebounder. Better outlet passer.

Yes, Love is a marginally worse defender but slipping from 29th to 30th in the league is not a drastic drop. Nurk and Covington are overrated defenders as is.

Love spreads the court and makes everyone better.


Gamble and make this trade or gamble that Dame is satisfied with the moves and stays.

Gamble that Nurk and RoCo perform

Gamble that we can re-sign Nurk and Roco
