NBA trade rumors love to talk about big names, as some of them hate their team, while some of them are hated by their team. The latest trade rumors are suggesting that Kevin Love will be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and Carmelo Anthony to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kevin Love To L.A Lakers For Randle, Williams, And Calderon

According to NBA Trade Rumors, the scenario involves the Cleveland Cavaliers sending Kevin Love to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Cavs would receive point guard Jose Calderon, power forward Julius Randle, and shooting guard Lou Williams in return. NBA critics also believe that these players are the missing package that the Cavaliers have been looking for.

Sportsrageous claimed that the trade deal might be a reasonable one as the Cavs roster needs some breathing room and depth on the bench. The NBA Finals series against the Golden State Warrior last season also showed that the Cavs are missing production from their backups. The only bright spot on their bench was J.R. Smith, who until now is still unsigned by the team.

Rumors still blaming Kevin Love's poor performance last season as the reason why the Cavaliers are putting him on the trading block. Some reports are suggesting that Love fits in well with Coach Tyronn Lue's system, and his chemistry with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving is not connecting.

Carmelo Anthony To Cleveland Cavaliers Trade Scenario

Carmelo Anthony had recently admitted that he wants to be traded to the Cavs and join his good friend LeBron James against the Golden State Warriors. According to ESPN Trade Machine, while the Cavaliers would receive Randle, Williams, Calderon, and Carmelo Anthony the Lakers would receive Kevin Love, along with Shumpert, and Brandon Jennings from the Knicks. The Knicks would get Tristan Thompson, Jordan McRae, and Kay Fedler in return.

The trade offer might be far from a possibility, but how big would it be to have Melo on the Cavs roster. And King James would seem to have the final say whenever the Cavs organization has a decision to make, and he might push to make this deal happen.

Trade rumors are always just rumors, but if it really happens, what are the benefits for each team?
