Carmelo Anthony is not the answer for Cavs

NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 01:  Carmelo Anthony #7 of the New York Knicks looks on late in the final Quarter of their 95-90 win against the Brooklyn Nets  at the Barclays Center on February 1, 2017 in New York City.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is clamoring for a playmaker to ease his burden, and reportedly is willing to part with four-time All-Star Kevin Love if it means acquiring his good friend Carmelo Anthony.

If you ask Dan Patrick, completing such a trade would be incredibly short-sighted. Even if Cleveland could pull off the deal without moving Love, there is no guarantee that it would make them better. 

The Cavaliers need a legitimate backup point guard to take pressure off Kyrie Irving, not a ball-stopping forward.
