Cavs deny report that LeBron James is pushing Cavs to trade Kevin
While the Cleveland Cavaliers are sitting comfortably atop of the Eastern Conference at 34-15, everyone has seen what the Golden State Warriors have done since their addition of Kevin Durant in the offseason. Over the past couple of weeks, both the L.A. Clippers and the Cavs have been linked to the New York Knicks and their star forward Carmelo Anthony.
Just last week, the Cavs were reportedly backing away from trade requests involving Kevin Love, so this would mean that James is doing the exact opposite of the what Cavs’ management wants to do. It’s also worth noting that this came from a New York based writer who has had a history of creating Kevin Love-to-Knicks rumors.
