With the NBA trade deadline approaching…
The NBA Trade Deadline is just two days away, but what players will you see on the move? Though not the biggest names, Willy Hernangomez and Shabazz Muhammad want out of their current teams. With Willy wanting out of New York because of the lack of playing time, you should see a move involving one of the Knicks big men.
It’s come out that the Clippers won’t be selling the entire team but I’d expect them to make a deal involving DeAndre Jordan especially after trading Blake Griffin. Jordan’s contract is up after the season and everyone expects him to bolt out of town.
Another Clipper they should trade is Lou Williams. He’s having a career year while averaging 23.4 PPG. Right now, he may bring back the biggest return.
The Hawks are having a fire sale but no one is buying from the limited talent they have. Dwayne Dedmon has teams at least a little bit interested, averaging 10 PPG in 23 minutes. Dedmon has put up decent numbers but his return still won’t be that great. Executives around the league believe believe in Hawks players Marco Belinelli and Ersan Ilyasova. They could add depth to a team but would certainly only garner a mid to late 2nd round pick.
Utah is looking to trade Rodney Hood and everyone could always use a wing.
I do not and will not understand the Memphis Grizzlies not trying to trade Marc Gasol. Gasol is 33 years old and continues to play good basketball. Let’s face it, they paid Mike Conley wayyyyyyyy to much money and he’s been hurt time and time again. They need to start somewhere and it’s the time to sell.
Do the Charlotte Hornets trade Kemba Walker?
The Cavaliers to trying to ship Isaiah Thomas out of town. It hasn’t worked out in Cleveland and it looks like he’s the only player a team may actually want that the Cavaliers will trade.
