At first glance, the idea of the Cleveland Cavaliers trading Kevin Love to the New York Knicks for Carmelo Anthony -- a swap the Cavaliers recently rebuffed, according to reporting by ESPN's Chris Haynes and Marc Stein -- seems like a nonstarter.

Love is enjoying the best of his three seasons in Cleveland after helping the Cavaliers win their first championship. He was an easy choice as an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve, while Anthony didn't make the All-Star roster for the first time in a decade and wasn't even one of the top omissions.

Nonetheless, considering how Anthony might be used in Cleveland -- particularly in a possible third consecutive meeting with the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals -- suggests Melo might make sense for the Cavaliers. So should they revisit the Love for Anthony deal?
