Why he’d sign there
Good question. The weather’s nice, he’d be close to L.A. and rookie coach Jeff Hornacek nearly got the surprising Suns to the playoffs last season.
What they have to offer
• One of two star point guards — Goran Dragic or Eric Bledsoe, a restricted free agent who’s due a huge payday — as well as one or both the Morris twins, Markieff and Marcus. They have former Wolves swingman Gerald Green, too.
• The 14th, 18th and 27th overall picks as well as the Lakers’ 2015 first-round pick.
Salary cap implications
• Like the Cavs, they too will be way under the cap come July and can be flexible.
Kings reportedly are willing to trade the draft’s eighth pick and players other than DeMarcus Cousins without getting a guarantee that Love will re-sign with them. Their only advantage to re-signing him is, like the Wolves, they would be able to offer a contract extension worth $26.5 million more than any other team. Wolves should be able to get more in return.
Playing with the franchise for which his dad once played might appeal to Love, but the Wizards have little to offer if they’re not willing to part with rising star guard Bradley Beal.
Will the Thunder shake things up if its title aspirations fall short again? Love alongside Kevin Durant is intriguing, but does a swap that involves defender Serge Ibaka make it any better? Would you — and would the Thunder — trade enigmatic Russell Westbrook straight up for Love?
