NBA Trade Rumors: Cavs to send Kevin Love to Bucks for Greg Monroe?

The Cleveland Cavaliers could consider trading for Milwaukee Bucks center Greg Monroe, who has been at the center of NBA trade rumors this offseason.

While the Cavs still has their main stars intact, with LeBron James set to re-sign with the Cavs, it would help them to add a veteran who may help rival the Golden State Warriors' strong team.

One player the Cavs could consider adding is Greg Monroe, one of the league's "most proven vets known to be available via trade," according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Monroe struggled to fit with the Bucks last season after the team signed the 26-year-old center to a three-year deal worth $50 million. But Bleacher Report's Nate Loop says that Monroe could still be a valuable addition for contending teams.

"He is a strong rebounder and does well with the ball in the low post. He may be better off contributing as a veteran on a contending team, rather than as the center of a young Bucks team looking to play a faster, more agile brand of basketball," Loop writes.

The Cavs may need Monroe's' services, especially as Kevin Love is struggling the same way Monroe did last season.

It is still not sure whether the Cavs would be keen to acquire Monroe, but if they do, Love would likely be the centerpiece of any trade deal.
