: Wed be talking about a Cleveland dynasty if it werent for those pesky Warriors! Lebron getting this team to the finals is a great accomplishment in itself. If Im Paul George Im trying to sign with the Cavs and run with the King.

Cavs have negative cap space right now (even after LeBron opts out and they renounce Hood's rights), so if any players join them, it has to be through a trade with exact matching salaries.

Most likely they would have to find a taker for Love, but since he is on a bad contract ($50 million over two years) the Cavs would need to include a draft pick to sweeten the deal. If there is no third team involved to facilitate, OKC could play hardball and demand Love and a 1st rounder (#8), as OKC already needs to dump Carmelo's salary on someone and will need to give up a pick to move that $27 million contract. (Thunder owner Clay Bennett has historically been cheap, the luxury tax bill for 'Melo may be too much to stomach)
