    I know, it won't happen. But man, I would love (no pun intended) if it did.

    Pros:
    Both earn roughly the same, so there would be no need to include anbody else on either side.
    We get the Stretch 4 we need, locked up for 4 years.
    We can't extend DDR.
    We open up a ton of minutes for DJ, DW LW.
    They get a reliable scorer, who (most likely) doesn't opt in with them next year. And even if he does, he would be tradable.

    Cons:
    KL is bad at this Defense Thing. But that would be somewhat of a wash considering DeRozan isn't exactly the second coming of Bruce or Kawhi himself.
    We have KL locked up until he is 35.
    Can DDR put butts in seats in Cleveland and make a trade more interesting for the Cavs?

    Thouhts?

    I recommend this during the off season before they signed Love to an extension.

    It makes sense in that it fixes a lot the spacing issues with the starters.
    Before he signed the extension he had two years left which seemed to line up perfectly with our current two year plan the Spurs seem to be on.

    But 4 years of Kevin Love now seems a bit to long.

    4 years of Kevin Love is about 2 or 3 years to many

    No way, Kevin Love is empty calories, even worse than DeRozan when it comes to impact and his contract is very long, which will prevent the Spurs ability to retain their draftees for the long term, especially with the expected drop of the cap. And even if you disregard all of this heís not good enough to make the Spurs a contender by a long shot even in the most optimistic scenario, is injury prone, and his game is unlikely to mesh well with Aldridge on defense.

    Kevin love is severely underrated. Lebron makes some players worse he is one of them

    No!

    Overpaid contract is 3 years too many.

    He has been very injury prone and is in a very long and pricey deal. I haven’t watched him play since Lebron left, he may not have much left in the tank with all his injuries of late. P .

    I’d do

    DeIso/Marco for Love/Windler and a 1st. Cleveland might do that. Depends on how bad they want to get rid of Love’s contract

    They just extended him, so...

    Not a fan of Love, and never have been. If DDR was a mistake, there's no need to compound it by taking on four more HUGE contract years, just when your young players are going to need to be paid.

    Aldridge is probably the best player on the team.

    What do you tell him after you make this deal?

    If the choice is between Love's current contract versus an extended Derozan I'll take Love.

    Derozan is clogging up the position the Spurs have depth and youth so he's unnecessary.
    If the Spurs aren't serious about extending Derozan then yes let him play out this last year, opt out and have the cap space for younger guys.

    How would you feel about a K. Love - D. DeRozan swap?


    My first thought was "Ewww". And my second. With the exception of a couple of seasons he's mostly about a .360 3P shooter, or a little less. His 2P attempts have steadily fallen, and last year his 2P% went completely to . The biggest plus is that he boards, and he still gets to the FT line a decent amount. But I think you'll see this year that he's on the downhill side of being an inside big man.

    I guess with this roster construction, he's a guy who can sit out on the 3P line and get a lot of shots off because of his height. But I hate this roster construction. And I hate the $120M he'll cost over the next four years even more. That'll be recognized as a bad contract long before year 4. The absolute last thing I want to see the Spurs do right now is take on any bad contracts.

    Boston is in cap I believe with the signings of Hayward and Kemba. Plus they’re gonna give Tatum the Supermax. I don’t see a way they afford him. I hope the Spurs sit tight and wait for him instead of signing Demar

    The C's have four days to extend him. I think they won't, for all the cap reasons you mentioned. He's going to command a high price if he hits the open market. I think he's a piece, but not one you build a franchise around. To me he's just one of many open market guys to consider. Given the Spurs difficulty getting FA's to sign, it's pretty much a longshot.

    Kevin Love is a much better basketball player than DeRozan. However, his contact is ridiculous. I'd rather DeRozan get sent off for a middling draft pick it a serviceable wing.
