Separately, Kevin Love and Bradley Beal have been part of trade rumors since the summer, but recently, the two have been linked together in a potential move that could shake up the Eastern Conference.

Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers had a rocky start as they did not appear to work well with each other. However, they have gone past this stage in their relationship and have an NBA championship to prove their partnership can exist.

Despite all that, it seems that trade rumors and Love are unable to part and this time it appears that he is linked to a move to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Beal.

Meanwhile, Beal has been in trade talks after his poor relationship with John Wall hit the news. This has resulted in many believing one of the two stars have to go as a partnership cannot exist between them.

It appears that Wall is the more preferred player and Beal is now being dealt to the Cavaliers for a star-to-star trade.

Looking at it on paper, this might benefit both teams in as the Cavaliers would definitely have a threat from inside and outside.

Aside from Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and JR Smith, having Beal on board will give the team a real threat and it would stretch the floor for everyone to have their fair share of shots.

On the other hand, the Wizards will have Love and his championship experience, as it would certainly help the Wizards grow into a bigger team and they can use their height and strength to try and be a force in the East.

Looking at Love's stats, he averages 20.2 points and 11 rebounds per game this season and his output should improve if he moves to Washington.

On the other hand, Beal is averaging 17.8 points a night and is shooting 33 percent from the field in the present campaign.

It should be interesting to see how it would play out if the deal does fall through.
