Coach K Says He Wouldn’t Hesitate Trading Wiggins for Love
The debate has been going on since LeBron came back to Cleveland. It is a circular debate, that has valid points on each side. I am on the Coach K side that it is a no brainer if you have the chance to get Kevin Love you pull the trigger.
Here is what Coach K had to say via Sporting News.
“There’s absolutely not one second of hesitancy. I’d trade for Kevin Love,” Krzyzewski said. “That’s not saying anything bad about any of the other youngsters. Love’s an All-Star and he’s a double-double guy. But he’s a double-double guy who can spread the court. There aren’t many double-double guys who can spread the floor; he can go inside and outside. There may be a low post player that gets you a double double, but Love, you can do a lot of different things with him.”
“I’ve coached him on two teams, and no pun intended, I love Kevin Love,” he said. “You look at LeBron, and you have the best player in the world. He’s 29, I’m not saying he’s at the end of his career, but he’s in the second-half of his career. And in the first half of his career he was becoming a great player. It took time, just like with Andrew Wiggins, it takes time. LeBron is a great player right now, you do not want to waste any year of a great player’s career. Love is close to being that. He’s not as great a player as LeBron, but he’s there. You know who Love is right now.”
