Fake NBA Trade of the Day 6/17/16: Kevin Love to New York

Kevin Love Knicks 1

Every day, Pick and Popovich will post one fake trade and explain why it makes sense for every team involved to make it. There are no parameters beyond fitting within the salary cap. Sometimes the trades will involve stars, others role players. They are not grounded in actual rumors, they just make sense on paper. During the 2016 NBA Playoffs, each week will feature seven fake trades of one star player. This is Kevin Love Week.

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive:                                                  New York Knicks Receive:

Carmelo Anthony                                                                        Kevin Love

 

 

Why Cleveland would make this trade: Because Carmelo Anthony is LeBron’s friend, and that matters for some reason.

Why New York would make this trade: If you’re going to have an all-offense forward, better to have one who’s 27 than one who’s 32.
