VIDEO: Gary Payton thinks Kevin Love would fit best with Blazers
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love would very well be on the move sooner rather than later.
With the rumor mill churning more and more each day as the Cavs move further and further out of contention, all signs and reports continue to point toward a trade highlighted by Love.
Not only that, but former NBA point guard Gary Payton knows the perfect landing spot for the All-Star big man.

The Portland Trail Blazers continue to serve as one of the more intriguing teams in the Western Conference and entire NBA.
With guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum still leading the way for the a team that comes ever so close to immense success on what seems like an annual basis, the Blazers added another wrinkle to the fold this year in the form of future Hall of Famer Carmelo Anthony.
The three-headed monster is paving the way for what could be a huge turnaround in Portland after a rocky start to the season. However, adding a talent like Kevin Love could put this franchise over the top before the 2019-20 campaign comes to an end.
It is also worth noting that the Blazers added center Hassan Whiteside this past offseason. With that said, pairing the longtime Miami Heat standout with a two-way presence like Love could really add a spark to the team.
As it stands today, the Blazers sit in 12th place in the Western Conference at a pedestrian 9-15 on the year — which is certainly not where this team was protected to be to start the season.
