Central Notes: Love, Middleton, Perkins, Pistons

Earlier tonight, we heard talk of the Cavaliers sending Kyle Korver to Philadelphia in exchange for Jerryd Bayless. While we wait to see if anything materializes in Cleveland, let’s take a look at some notes from the Central Division:

  • The Cavaliers are not shopping Kevin Love, though he could be on the move if the right offer presents itself, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst mentions on the Lowe Post podcast. The scribe adds that Khris Middleton is in the same boat with the Bucks not deeming him untouchable nor looking to deal him.
  • Cleveland waived Kendrick Perkins to “do right” by the big man and allow him to pursue training camp deals, a source tells Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com. The Cavaliers signed Perkins on the final day of the 2017/18 regular season back when LeBron James was still on the roster. The team had hoped to use Perkins’ contract as part of an offseason trade.
  • The Pistons have added Tim Grgurich and Micah Nori as assistant coaches to Dwane Casey‘s staff, Ansar Khan of Mlive.com relays.
  • Alex Boeder of NBA.com examines what Brook Lopez will bring to the Bucks. Lopez should be able to help the team stretch the floor with his three-point shot, as over 40% of his shots from the field last came from behind the arc.
  • FIBA has banned Bucks center Thon Maker for three games in international play for his part in a brawl during a game in the Philippines earlier this month, according to an ESPN report. Maker said he disagreed with the decision in a written statement that was released on his Twitter account.

      Hopefully his career takes off because I only remember him for the pair of drop kicks

    Henson, Delly, and a second for Love. Cavs save money all around, drop half what is left the second year, get a fan favorite back, and a second round pick.

      Are you high?? First off thats not nearly enough for Love. Second Kevin Love is much more of a fan favorite then Delly. Kevin Love is an all star player and in return you would get a marginal backup center and point guard and a second round pick(which usually never result in even a starter let alone an all star) this must be the opinion of a clueless Bucks fanboy

        Not clueless. Just someone who wanted to get that type of response. How about switch Delly with Bledsoe?

        • diller79

          Maybe if you switch Delly with Bledsoe and make it a first round pick then your getting close

    That’s surprising about K-Mid, was good to get rid of Jabari but him, would have never thought of.

    • brewpackbuckbadg

      gotta be open to listen but I would suspect it is unlikely. —- Only way they Trade K-Mid is if it is with someone else for a bigger package. If he was going to Cleveland last year in the Kyrie deal I could have understood assuming we think Kyrie is a top ten talent and not a product of playing with LeBron.

    This makes absolutely no sense from the Cavs perspective. Keep both KLove and Korver.
