Mike Krzyzewski says Cavaliers should trade Wiggins for Love

Duke's Coach K says Cavaliers should trade Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love

It seems every NBA fan has an opinion on whether the Cleveland Cavaliers should trade first-round draft pick Andrew Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love. One big NBA fan has checked in with his thoughts: Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski.

“I think there’s absolutely not one second of hesitancy,” Krzyzewski said in an interview on CBS Sports Radio on Monday. “I’d trade for Kevin Love. That’s not saying anything about any of the other players involved in the deal. Love’s an all-star. He’s a double-double guy, but he’s a double-double guy that can spread the court. There aren’t many double-double guys, if any, who spread the court. He can go inside and outside.

"You look at LeBron and you have the best player in the world. He’s 29. I’m not saying he’s at the end of his career, but he’s in the second half of his career, let’s put it that way. And in the first half of his career, he was becoming a great player. He was a great talent becoming a great player. That takes time -- just like if Wiggins is going to be great, it’s not going to happen right now. They’re great talents. LeBron is a great player right now. You do not want to waste any year of a great player’s career.”
