Kevin Love’s ‘love-hate’ comments on Draymond Green sparks trade rumors to Warriors

Warriors, Kevin Love, Draymond Green

Kevin Love’s future with the Cleveland Cavaliers has always been in limbo. It just feels like he has seen his name dragged into trade rumors perpetually. Love’s recent comments on Draymond Green, however, could get the rumor mill going again as a potential move to the Golden State Warriors.

This also isn’t the first time we’ve heard whispers about Love possibly taking his talents to The Bay. According to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle, a move away from the Cavs appears to be forthcoming for the five-time All-Star:

There is growing sentiment around the league that Love will negotiate a buyout with Cleveland and sign a veteran-minimum contract with a contender, with one of the options being the Warriors.

Love is also part of the Team USA contingent that will represent the nation for the upcoming Olympic Games, wherein he’ll get to spend some time with Draymond Green. When asked to share his thoughts on his Team USA teammate, Love was all praises for Dray:

“Obviously, with Draymond, it’s a love-hate relationship, but we’ve become actually pretty close friends over the past few years,” Love said. “I love how he competes, his mind for the game, his intangibles, how he leads the break. He passes, he plays defense, and it seems like he’s always in the right spot.

“He’s first-team All-Defense and has been the Defensive Player of the Year for a reason, so I think we can elevate each other’s game.”

Love clearly relished the opportunity to play alongside Draymond Green, so could this be an indication of his willingness to join the Warriors next season?
