All You Need is Love

Kevin-love1_medium

What would Kevin Love cost the Boston Celtics? I look back to the Carmelo Anthony trade as a point of reference.

Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman

for

Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick

New York gave up a lot. Chandler was picked 23rd and was a good big. Felton was drafted 6th and was good point. Gallinari was drafted 5th and was a rising star. Mozgov is a 7 footer who was a rotation player (did I mention he was 7 feet tall).

Denver gave up Carmelo (25-7-3 at the time). They gave up Chauncey (who was still a stud). And some guys.

So net package -- Carmelo basically netted 3 number 1s. Love is worth no more or no less than that.

Details are what is important...but Sullinger is worth a one. Olynyk is worth a one. Celtics #6 is a one. Celtics #17 is a one. Brooklyn's 2018 is a one.

Love is worth some combination of 3 of our number 1 picks. Which 3 I leave it to the greater minds, GMs, and you to decide.
