NBA trade rumors

  1. The time George Karl decided to float a crazy trade rumor just because

    Feb 10, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    George Karl

    It’s my annual warning this time of year — when you hear a trade rumor think, “which team would benefit from that going public?” Usually that will lead you to where it was leaked. And no team is going to make a trade unless it benefits them — both sides need to see it as…

  2. Report: Lakers talking Gasol for Josh Smith, testing trade waters

    Jun 27, 2012, 4:31 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol Josh Smith

    We said it before, the Lakers need to make a move if they want to get past the second round next year. And while no move seems imminent, the Lakers are testing all kinds of trade scenarios out there, according to multiple reports. Maybe the most interesting is with the Hawks, via the twitter of…

  3. Report: Kevin Martin will not re-sign in Houston. Think trade.

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin

    In all the buzz about the Rockets trading Chase Budinger to get the No. 18 pick — a move clearly a precursor to other moves — there was a lot of talk about who might get moved with a pick so Houston can move up. It may not be now, but look for Kevin Martin…

  4. Report: Nuggets talking Chandler for Warriors No. 7 pick

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:08 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    And as the draft nears, the rumors are flying fast and furious. On that passes the smell test is this from Chris Broussard of ESPN on twitter: Lots of teams calling Denver to trade for Nuggets’ young players. 1 of several moves being discussed: Wilson Chandler to G State for 7th pick Wilson Chandler could…

  5. Report: Celtics, 76ers, Timberwolves pursuing Jamal Crawford

    Jun 27, 2012, 8:50 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Pau Gasol

    With its core getting up there in years (save Rajon Rondo), the Boston Celtics need to add some more scoring firepower. You could see it in the playoffs against Philly (and through the regular season). Jamal Crawford is walking, talking firepower. Or at least he was a couple years ago. The former Sixth Man of…

  6. Report: Rockets talking with Raptors, Kings about draft trade

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:14 AM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    This really shouldn’t really be a surprise — ever since Daryl Morey took over as general manager of the Rockets they have been one of the more active teams on draft day. Right now they pick No. 14 but they want to move up, according to ESPN. Sources say that Houston has discussed deals with…

  7. Report: Raptors ready to trade No. 8 pick, more for swingman

    Jun 6, 2012, 8:18 PM EDT

    Image (1) Raptors_logo-thumb-250x221-14966.gif for post 2867

    Toronto has some players in place, a coach, but they also have a distinct need — they want an established front line wing player. They have set their sights high. And they will give up their No. 8 overall pick to get it. So reports Marc Stein at ESPN. And that’s why the Raptors have…

  8. Report: Brandon Jennings on the trade block “for right price”

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    All you fans trying to dream up trade scenarios where your team can land a star point guard by just trading away a rack of shootaround basketballs — or Luke Walton — we have another name to consider. Brandon Jennings. They are rethinking everything in Milwaukee and injured center Andrew Bogut was already on the…

  9. Celtics don’t expect to make big move at trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Avery Bradley, Mickael Pietrus, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    The rumors swirling around the Boston Celtics are of radical changes — Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen have all had their names come up in trade scenarios — but in the end it may all be a lot of words with no action. Well, it is an election year, we should expect a…

  10. Tuesday And-1 links: Let the trade rumors begin

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). The Golden State Warriors have their eye on Brook Lopez (if that whole “trade for Dwight Howard” thing doesn’t work out for the Nets). Ramon…

  11. Report: Sixers trying to trade for Amare Stoudemire

    Jan 29, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the more surprising teams in the NBA this season considering they’ve leapt out to a 14-6 record and currently lead the Atlantic Division by four games at this early juncture in the season. In an attempt to prove that they’re in it for the long haul, though, they’re apparently…

  12. Report: Raptors open to trading guard Jose Calderon

    Jan 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Calderon drives to the basket past Sacramento Kings' Thomas during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If only there were a couple big name teams out there looking for a point guard…. Interesting note from Marc Stein of ESPN: Sources with knowledge of Toronto’s thinking say that the team is not just going to give Calderon away, especially when he’s back to supplying a typically efficient 10.6 points and 8.7 assists…

  13. UPDATE: Grizzlies, 76ers, Hornets agree to Speights trade

    Jan 4, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    UPDATE 1:52 pm: This trade became official, according to the Commercial Appeal. And as we feared, it’s because the Zach Randolph injury was more serious than first thought. UPDATE 11:17 am: This has grown into a three-team trade involving the New Orleans Hornets that is “on course” to come to fruition Wednesday, reports Marc Stein…

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    We knew it looked bad when it happened Saturday, and now the worst has been confirmed. Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur will be out for the season with a torn Achilles, reports the Commercial Appeal. There is a six-to-12 month recovery time. Arthur is a versatile backup big — he can play the four or the…

  16. Report: Dwight Howard has not told Magic his intentions

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Chris Paul has been up front — he sat down with Hornets officials on Monday and was pretty clear he was not signing an extension and returning to New Orleans. He is not stringing the Hornets along (which is little consolation for the team’s fans). Dwight Howard on the other hand… He has seemed conflicted…

  17. Why are we talking trades for Paul, Howard? Money.

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Since about three minutes after David Stern and Billy Hunter sat bleary-eyed in a New York conference room to say they reached a deal, we have been talking trades. Specifically Chris Paul and Dwight Howard trades. The two superstar, franchise cornerstone guys who can opt out as free agents next summer and may push their…

  18. Hawks’ Josh Smith still on trade block. Any takers?

    Dec 1, 2011, 9:32 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Around the NBA draft last year the Atlanta Hawks shopped forward Josh Smith around. The feeling was mutual, Smith felt it was time for a change of scenery. However, the Hawks didn’t get any offers they liked. Now with the lockout over, Smith is back up on the trading block, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo.…

  19. Report: Boston “open” to trading Rajon Rondo

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:34 AM EDT

    Rondo_Mavs

    We suggest before reading this report you have a shaker of salt with you. Unless you’re a Celtics fan, in which case you should have blood pressure medicine with you. But know up front we don’t totally buy this. Chris Broussard at ESPN has suggested the Celtics will listen to offers for All-Star point guard…

  20. The reality of all those NBA trade rumors

    Jun 24, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    We love talking trade rumors as much as anyone. It’s part of the fun of being a sports fan, talking about potential deals. And rumors were flying about like cabs in New York City leading up to the NBA Draft Thursday. Andre Iguodala to either team in Los Angeles. Lamar Odom to Minnesota or Philadelphia…

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

That according to Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress, on twitter. Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando. Orlando has…

    MAYNOR_ERIC

    A number of teams have floated the idea of trading a player for one of the picks higher up in this draft. The Lakers dangled Lamar Odom, Tony Parker’s name was thrown around by the Spurs, and countless other deals have been suggested. The Oklahoma City Thunder have done the same… except they really like…

  23. Report: Tony Parker to the Trail Blazers was discussed

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    While the Spurs deny it, comments from other teams make it look like Tony Parker is being shopped around like he is on QVC. How serious those talks are is the question. In the case of a Hoopsworld report, things got very close with the Portland Trail Blazers. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail…

    Jun 22, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is being shopped around, and while Boston may not be interested Orlando is. That according to Ken Berger at CBS Sports.
