So much information and fluidity to the NBA rumor mill, it’s crazy. Here’s a brief rundown and thoughts of a couple players out there.
Chris Paul: CP3 has reportedly voiced his desire to be traded to the Knicks (Obviously my preferred option). Clippers, Warriors and Rockets have interest in trading for Paul.The Clippers and Warriors are the Hornets’ preferred trade partners, but both teams have concerns because they want to be sure that Paul is committed to stay.
Dwight Howard: He hasn’t said anything but, the rumors are flying. Hearing Nets and the Lakers. The Lakers rumor is interesting because it involves CP3 and also because Howard wants to improve his marketability. If the Laker move happens, another dynasty?
Deron Williams: Dwill has turned down an extension. Smart move. He has another year to see the direction of the nets and can get a bigger contract. He’s waiting to see if the nets bring in Howard or he’s gone. That is all.
Nene: The one name wonder has become the top free agent available. Don’t expect anything concrete until the Dwight Howard situation is resolved. Teams won’t want to spoil their opportunity with Howard.
Jamal Crawford: He’s been contacted by Atlanta, New Jersey, Indiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Orlando and Chicago. No word on who’s the leading right now. Keeping his options open I guess???
Tyson Chandler: The biggest news surrounding Chandler is that Dallas will not make an offer so they can make a move on Dwill next year.
Marc Gasol: He’ll go ANYWHERE as long as he get’s paid
