This would shut down the Internet for the day if this were to happen.
According to the New York Daily News, the Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics have been in preliminary talks about a trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Cavs and Love to the C's.
In the trade, the Knicks would receive draft picks and some players in return. One of those players reportedly would be Cavs center Timofey Mozgov.
Anthony has reiterated that he has no plans to be traded, and he would have to waive his no-trade clause to agree to a deal if it were to actually happen.
The Knicks look like they are building towards the future, and there have been many rumors since last season about trading Melo. With the rise of Kristaps Porzingis, the rumors have grown even more since then.
The same has gone for Kevin Love, despite the fact that he signed a contract extension with the team this past summer. Ever since the firing of head coach David Blatt, the trade talks have grown surrounding the Cavs power forward.
I guess we will have to see what happens, as the trade deadline is now creeping up. I'm not sure how LeBron, Melo and Kyrie Irving can all gel together, but I'm sure they can make it work. Love, meanwhile, has been linked to Boston for years now.
This could end up being a win-win if it were to go down, but it all depends on Melo waiving his no-trade clause. I know for sure his wife, La La, would not want to move from New York City to Cleveland...
