Brian Windhorst of ESPN, while on an appearance on The Really Big Show on ESPN 850 WKNR with Tony Rizzo, Aaron Goldhammer and Eric Williams, said the reeling Cavaliers (1-10) could indeed find a market for the five-time All-Star at the league’s Feb. 7 trade deadline, should he be healthy. Love underwent surgery on his left foot Nov. 2 and according to the team, will be re-evaluated in six weeks. “If they wanted to trade him, they could,” Windhorst said. Even coming off surgery? “Yes. Absolutely. There is interest in Kevin Love in this league,” Windhorst said. “Would it be the best time to trade him? I don’t believe so, no. I don’t believe you could get your best value then.”
“I’ve talked to general managers out there who are interested in trading for Kevin Love, right now,” Windhorst said. “Maybe not this moment, but they maintain in trading for him this season, if he’s healthy. “The Cavs would be able to get pieces for him. I don’t necessarily think they’d be great pieces. When you have a guy under a $100 million contract who is injured, you worry about whether you’d have to ‘incentivize’… it’s what’s known as ‘incentivizing’ where you’d have to add something to the deal like a draft pick or something to sweeten the pot for a team to the player off your hands.”
Love and Mays also toured Banana Republic’s archives closet at the company’s design studio in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood. In there, Love found vintage leather jackets and jeans and military fatigues that he wanted to incorporate into his own line. Note, it was Love doing the picking. Not his stylist. “Kevin’s involvement is unique,” Mays said. “Normally, an athlete or anyone famous I’ve worked with will send their marketing people, and at the very end will climb into whatever it was that’s picked out. That’s not Kevin, and it’s why I think the line is succeeding and will succeed. The line is him.”
But he also sees a career for himself in fashion. “There’s one thing to taking photos and being curated and looking good, but there’s also something building something,” Love said. “And I do think, that was a goal of mine when I got into fashion, was to have something that I could build and put my own stamp on with my own collection. I think that was fun and it’s another avenue that when I’m done, I could potentially step into. I feel like I’ve found a sense of purpose and also something that could potentially be life work.”
When Drew was asked whether there’s a chance Love is shut down for the season, he paused for a moment before answering. “I’m not concerned about that,” Drew said. “I haven’t gotten anything from our side as far as missing for the year. I’m going to proceed with the whole fact that he is going to be out for a period of time and that’s how we have to prepare. Like I said, I’m hoping he will be back sooner than later. But I have to prepare this team as best I can since he’s not here.”
