PBT Extra: Talking early season NBA trade rumors

Nov 18, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

Normally trade rumors don’t really get going until Christmas, but like an early snowstorm we’ve been hit with a blanket of rumors to start this season, so Kay Adams and I break them down.

No, Rondo is not going to the Knicks, New York simply doesn’t have the pieces to make that work. Plus I don’t think Danny Ainge is eager to move Rondo. That said, expect Iman Shumpert‘s name to come up in a bunch of other trade talks.

Then there are the big men Omer Asik and Kenneth Faried. Asik will get moved at some point this season, but Faried is less of a sure thing as Denver is not under any pressure to make a deal.

    If Faried doesn’t fit Scott’s style of play, keeping him around is silly.

      If you have a coach that doesn’t want Faried around, then you should probably fire your coach.

        I cannot argue with that statement.

    Kay Adams can get the D.

    Kings need to bring in Rondo. This team is terrible and something big has to be done.

    If Rondo didn’t learn how to shoot a jumper in these 9 months of rehab, he never will.

    Then again having Ray Allen as his teammate for 6 years didn’t help either.
