Okay, we can do this one of two ways: the simple way or the hard way.
The simple way: Knicks trade Melo for Kyrie Irving.
There were reports that Irving was unhappy and wanted out, but he later denied it. However, that’s neither here nor there as most players will deny it even if it’s true. In any event, if the Cavs lose yet again, I think they’d have to consider a LeBron/Melo. The only thing is, they’d have to figure out what to do with Love as Melo and LeBron would man the forward spots. They could always go small and play Love at center, but that’d be an atrocious defensive front court. Anyway, they could always move Love for a center… which brings me to my next point…
The hard way: Melo, Lopez, and Calderon for Irving and Love.
Love has struggled to fit in with the Cavs and has even appeared to be unhappy on various occasions. We could give them a superstar forward in Melo, a rugged center in Lopez, and a knockdown shooter and passer at heart in Calderon. We’d have our pg of the present and future plus a forward that can further spread the floor at pf as KP mans the center spot. With a trio of Irving/Love/KP, I think we could lure a stud at sf. Durant anybody?? If not, we still have a much better chance of landing a good wing this summer than a pg. Durant, Derozen, Beal, etc.
