Channing Frye thinks Blazers should trade for Cavs’ Kevin Love
Frye shared his thoughts on Twitter, noting that the Blazers getting Love has a possibility to ‘shake’ the entire Western Conference.
I’m gonna be honest i had a conversation with friends and i think the best move for the Blazers would be to get Kevin Love. I think it would shake the whole western conference

Love hasn’t been too involved in trade rumors as of late. However, Frye’s thoughts could possibly spark some interest among teams. After all, the five-time All-Star is just 30 years old, well-within his prime. He was sidelined for most of the last season due to a foot injury, but when he returned, fans saw the Love of old.
A trade between the Blazers and the Cavs seems plausible and will benefit both teams. The Blazers — who have the backcourt tandem of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum — have achieved relative success in the past few years. However, they always fall short come playoff time, which suggests it might be time to re-haul their roster a bit.
The Cavs, who have secured Love to a four-year, $120 million last year, may be hesitant with the idea of parting ways with their franchise star. But if a good deal comes there way, the Wine and Gold should not close their doors as it could possibly turn their franchise around.
