A trade candidate that could get a good amount of attention this summer is the Cleveland Cavaliers 30-year-old forward Kevin Love.

An idea that involves bringing the former Minnesota Timberwolves and current Cleveland Cavaliers star forward Kevin Love to the Windy City to join the Chicago Bulls could be an intriguing one. The Cavaliers shouldn’t have a long-term need to keep Kevin Love around, especially since that franchise is looking to go through a full rebuild.

On the other hand, the Bulls will be an active suitor on the trade market this summer in looking for answers to keep the rebuild going. Kevin Love is a nice trade target to keep the depth rolling through for the frontcourt rotation, and to help develop some of the potential rising stars in the mix in the Windy City right now.

This idea of the Bulls and Cavaliers building up a trade framework involving Kevin Love could happen depending on how 2019 NBA Draft night shakes out. The intriguing thought of the Bulls trading down in the lottery could happen if it lands above the Cavs once the draft order is determined.

If the Bulls get lucky and slot ahead of the Cavs in the 2019 NBA Draft come lottery selection time, the front office should at least tool around with the idea of trading down to boost the current roster at hand. But, we’ll have to wait and see how bold the Bulls front office that is Gar Forman and John Paxson will be at the outset of the off-season.

Here’s a deeper look into the four reasons why a trade foundation should be built by the Chicago Bulls involving the Cleveland Cavaliers and star veteran forward Kevin Love.
