The New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder have shown a level of interest in acquiring Cleveland Cavaliers injured forward Kevin Love, according to ESPN analyst Mike Fratello (via Sam Amico of Amico Hoops). Both teams are in different situations, but could use a stretch 4 to help them reach their desired potential.

As former coach and current broadcast analyst Mike Fratello said on FOX Sports Ohio’s “Cavs in the Paint,” teams such as the New Orleans Pelicans and Oklahoma City Thunder would love to pair Love with their current stars.

The Pelicans are in dire need of adding another star or potentially risk losing talisman player Anthony Davis for nothing in free agency, or forced to abandon hope and trade him before the deadline — a more unlikely scenario with less than a month left before Feb. 7.
