I tend to agree somewhat with the OP, and I appreciate his disclaimer to begin that it isn't necessarily actual knowledge. Everyone coming on here and saying it is 'impossible' just hasn't seen how trades for superstars work in recent times and Love is nowhere near Lebron / Howard level, where the Cavs and Magic got very little in return.
If Adelman has legitimate interest in Green, Lee, and Sullinger, I think that provides the framework for a deal. I have said it in other threads, those players aren't horrible as others seem to perceive them to be. They are starting caliber players on market value contracts. I don't particularly want to throw in Bradley and Melo for the fun of it, but if other assets were involved, then I could listen.
I just don't think anybody is qualified to say that there is 'no chance' of this happening, especially if Love isn't happy and [also] especially since Love is apparently totally overrated.
Not really a good comparison. LBJ was a free agent, and Cleveland wanted to get something in return. D12 only has one year left on his deal and he could've walked for nothing. They had leverage. Kevin Love is in the first year of a 4 year extension he chose to sign. They have no reason to trade him for the next 3 yrs.
They do if he is letting people know that he isn't happy...I mean, he mentions it once and the franchise is in an uproar...Don't you think other franchises look at the debacle in ORL and want to avoid that if they can...especially if there is a deal on the table that is somewhat appealing to them?
That's incredibly wishful thinking. They have no reason to seriously consider moving him until after the 13/14 season. He's got a Player Option on the 15/16 and can become a free agent in 2015 - until he gains that leverage, he's in no position to dictate where he's going to go. Now, they may very well move him if he's unhappy, but they have all the power and can take the best package available. If that happens, Jeff Green's bloated contract is not going to cut it. That'd be highway robbery.
If he survives in Minny until the 2014 and he's still unhappy and wants to force his way somewhere, I honestly don't see Boston high on his list. He's a Cali boy, I fully expect the Lakers (or even GSW) to be more appealing to him.
