With rumors swirling about the future of Kevin Love, the Sacramento Kings are quietly game-planning a way to get him to California. Not many people realize Sacramento is in the running, but the Kings want to take a big chance on the coveted big man.
Why would this be such a big risk to get a guy who can average about 26 points and 13 rebounds per game? Money and no guarantees.
Sacramento would have to give up some major pieces for Love as the Minnesota Timberwolves need to get something for an all-star like the big man. It would take many role players as well as maybe a starter or two and a possible draft pick to get Love to Sacramento. Is that worth it? Not really.
Reports have said that the Kings are interested in trading for him even without the guarantee that he will re-sign with the team following the season.
So, in the grand scheme of things, Sacramento would be paying over $15 million for a player and giving up a bunch of key pieces and maybe even some draft picks for possibly just one season with Love? Not worth the risk at all.
Sure, if he decided to re-sign with the Kings, they would get a guy who will be an all-star likely every season and give the Kings a solid chance to win.
It would be wise for the team to just look toward the draft to add a big guy like Noah Vonleh or Julius Randle.
Love is not worth the big risk.
