The Cleveland Cavaliers are giving strong consideration to starting Kevin Love at center with Tristan Thompson coming off the bench.
Cleveland has been using Jae Crowder at the 4 with the starters during training camp.
"Tristan is a very dynamic roller, guy that plays a lot as a dunker," Love said. "Myself, I have to play inside-out, mix that up and really take what the defense gives you. But it gives us a different look. I mentioned different dynamics out there on the floor with different lineups, and we're so deep now that [Dwyane Wade] and a lot of guys similar in size at that 4-5 spot, we're going to see guys playing interchangeable. It's not just going to be on the defensive end in that regard."
With Kyrie Irving's trade to the Cavaliers, the team will be relying upon Love's offense more this season.
