Default Lamarcus Aldridge Trade Idea

I said it in another post but im curious to see some more opinion on the idea.

Going forward lets say Minny pays Pek and then goes max or close for Rubio that leaves em pretty strapped.

If i'm Minny i know Love is likely leaving anyway. So i'd trade him (ala Deron Williams) ahead of the curve.

If i'm Portland and LMA really does want out then i'd make a run at Love. Portland has cap space to get him back for LMA. Love is an Oregonian and knowing Blazers fans they would absolutely love watching Kevin.

The trade would have to involve multiple dudes but the basics would be LMA for Love. I think both teams win.

Portland going forward with Lillard, McCollum, Batum & Love + a likely high draft pick in the superclass of 14' is a pretty solid and young foundation.

Minny really needs to win in the next year or two. Switching Love for LMA keeps them equally competetive and the plan would be to hope a core of Rubio, LMA & Pek + solid role players would be a 2nd round team.

Maybe it's a stretch but as a Blazer fan it would be cool to see Love and Lillard going forward.

Honestly, this is a pretty perfect trade for each team. The only problem I see is that Minnesota would need to have an agreement that Aldridge would sign an extension.
