Rumor: Kevin Love to be Dealt to the Dallas Mavericks

The Cleveland Cavaliers are open for business and have been discussing multiple trades. While Andre Drummond's name will be moving before the April 12th deadline, it appears so to will Kevin Love. Sources indicate Love is likely headed to the Dallas Mavericks.

The Cavaliers are sitting 14-22 on the season and are out of the playoff picture. They've been trying to move the 32-year-old Love to clear up more playing time for their younger big-men. 

The Mavericks see Love as a forward who can score and rebound and his production will, like always, come down to his health. He's only played in two games this season, averaging 9.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and shooting 33% from deep.

Love's making $31.3 million this season and has two years remaining on his contract. While he's never requested a trade it's expected Dallas is one of his preferred destinations if he is to be traded mid-season.
