Kevin Love is the lone star left from the Cleveland Cavaliers' championship team in 2016. However, the two seasons that followed were years of struggles for the stretch-4.

The ongoing National Basketball Association season, however, is a different story so far for Love.

Six games in, he is making 19.2 points on 49.3 percent field goals, 41.5 percent on three-pointers, and 86.7 percent from the free-throw line, 15.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game.

Those stats, however, just made Kevin Love a valuable trade asset considering that Cleveland is currently on a rebuild.

However, Koby Altman, the Cavs' general manager, assured that Love is staying put.

“No. Not at all,” Altman said when asked if Love will be on the move as per's David Fedor.

This basically implies that Love will remain the main man of this Cleveland lineup oozing with young guns like Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., and Sexton Collins.

Brandon Knight on the move?

But as the trade talks regarding Love began to dwindle (for now), the focus is starting to shift to Brandon Knight.

Sean Deveney of reported that some teams are interested in acquiring Knight from the Cavs.

But a potential deal for the point guard can be considered high risk since the team that will eventually get him will have to shoulder the remainder of the $15 million that he will get this season.

In addition, Knight is not known for his three-point shooting, making him a concern among teams that are looking for long-range gunners.

The good thing, though, is that Knight's contract is expiring, giving both Cleveland and his eventual destination new options in next year's free agency or even as early as the NBA Draft as Cleveland would prefer a first-round pick to be inserted in a potential deal.

“If you can take the hit on his (salary) number and match it, you can get rid of a bad contract and get a guy who can still play,” said one NBA executive to Deveney.

Knight is hopeful that his career tainted by an anterior cruciate ligament injury will be revived with his current stint with the Cavs.
