   2017 NBA Manifesto

Kevin Love
PF/C, 6’10, 251lbs, 28 years old, 9 years of experience

Has found his spots as the third star, rebounded better than in any other year as a Cavalier, and has continued to improve his footwork defensively on the perimeter, doing a decent-enough job on screen action even in match-ups when he should be highly overmatched for speed (while sometimes still being thoroughly burned). Love has learned to adapt to his role here and enters his prime as a thoroughly good player. His body type may not be the prototype in the new fangled NBA, but his talent level asserts that that is not a problem. Conceivably, moving him could be part of the solution. But Love in general is not the problem.

Player Plan: Three years and circa. $72.35 million remaining, with a player option for 2019/20. It wasn’t his fault and he needn’t be moved, unless a better fit with great value is somehow available.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
