He will lose it next year, should have it all year.

Really never. Whiteside will retire as a PF for ESPN.

I hope he doesn't lose his PF tag on ESPN though

With espn you never really know. If he is actually starting at center though (as opposed to rotating there during the game) I would think it shouldn't take too long to update.

It should be pretty early in the year since he’s going to be starting at center

Any idea if/when he will gain C eligibility in ESPN leagues?

Love is having a tough pre season :(

I think we could see a bit of a bump in assists. He was operating out of the elbow quite a bit last night which he hasn't done since Minnesota. I don't think 3.5 per game for the season is unrealistic, higher while IT is out.

I'm also banking on a big season from Love this year. Even when IT returns. If his scoring dips to 16 - 17 PPG, I still like what he brings as a 3-point shooting big man with strong rebounds and FT%. I have a lot of team builds where that plays. For instance, in my keeper league, we keep 3 and I have paired him with Steph and Beal.

@Mike I'm banking on an increase in efficiency and if Lue allows him to be marginalised behind Wade, he is signing his resignation papers. I think things could swing in the other direction and remains second option ahead of IT and Wade.

I'm expecting a big season from Love with this announcement that he'll be starting at center. Reasonable to expect more rebounds than last season now that Tristan Thompson is basically being replaced by D-Wade in the starting lineup and Love will be guarding centers so be in better rebounding position. Also reasonable to expect an increase in 3ptm since he will have Cs guarding him instead of PFs now. No guarantees, but conventional logic would support those as strong possibilities.

Why are you so high on Love? I know IT is out a while, but when he's back Love is probably the 4th option on offense. He should have boards on lock, but the points might end up closer to the 16 he scored post-ASB last year

How about if he plays the C position?

His numbers are closer to last season, hard to see a big bump

what do you see changing if anything with Wade in town?

His value is relative to other players in the league. When analyzing a projection, you need to look at the player's individual stat lines for potential discrepancies. For example, I have his FT% lower but with more attempts & a higher FG%

100% (2) agree 
You can't really compare value from year to year, because it is so dependent on what the other players are doing. At this point, we have IT missing until start of December and I imagine Love's number's will come down when Thomas returns. His last half of last season was considerably worse than the first half - in fact it was almost exactly in line with his previous seasons in Cleveland. Once we get more details on Thomas, Love's numbers will change in one direction or another
27.7d
adifferentlogik
So you are projecting that his overall value will be lower than last year even though he is playing 1/3 of the season without IT and Kyrie is gone?

With IT out, anyone here think we will see the Minnesota K-Love?

I've made a slight adjustment, but his numbers will be higher when Thomas is out

Why is he projected to average less points than last year and worst fg% of his career? Lue said he's going to get more touches this season: https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/tyronn-lue-says-kevin-love-will-have-his-best-year-yet-with-cavaliers/
