In the last few days, trade chatter has increased. Here’s some of the news floating around the association.
- According to Basketball Insiders Rudy Gay will likely be traded before February’s deadline. Many within the NBA feel it’s only a matter of time before Gay gets moved.
- Nerlens Noel and his agents are working with the 76ers to find a trade partner. Noel is disgruntled with his role in Philly. Coach Brett Brown announced Noel is currently out of the rotation, so don’t be surprised if Noel is moved sooner than later. The biggest threat to acquire Noel is the Toronto Raptors reports Basketball Insiders. Toronto has been on Noel for a while, but will they mess with their nucleus?
3. Arron Afflalo is unhappy with his role in Sacramento and reportedly refused to check in to the game when asked upon. His days in Sac-Town are likely numbered.
4. Both the Magic and Thunder are in search for a scoring threat and are making calls around the league. One name to watch, Monta Ellis according to a source.
5. Lastly, Basketball Insiders says that one name that’s been surfacing on the trade front: Goran Dragic. Will be interesting to see if Miami blows it up and moves on from Dragic.
