With the trade deadline approaching this week, lets use this thread to discuss all of the trade news and rumors that are flying around.
If it is anything like years past, as the deadline gets closer things will get pretty crazy.
i am very curious as to what portland is going to do. right now they are in the 9th spot and not looking terrible good for the playoffs. do they trade to get better or maybe move LMA and/or wes matthews figuring to give up the pick this year in a weak draft for a mini-rebuild?
We may luck out and not get the pick this year... I'd like to have 2 picks but, this isn't the draft to have 2... We may end up with 3 lottery picks next season.
The thing that I am most curious about for this upcoming deadline to see if Cho can turn Diop's expiring contract into anything worthwhile.
A bag of Doritos and an extra rack of gym balls... Anything.
Dwight Howard says he wants to go to a team that has the highest chance of winning but he didn't specify. Hes coming to the BOBCATS since we have the highest chance of winning the lottery. HAHA. In all seriousness though I have been on the DMC bandwagon for a while so if we could somehow pull him away from the kings it would be nice. The guaranteed trade that will happen will be Josh Smith but who will take him? Millsap looks like he getting out of Utah. Clippers are shopping Bledsoe for some reason. Wouldn't mind if we traded Ben Gordon for an equally bad contract. Gonna be an interesting trade deadline thats for sure
The Blazers are not trading LMA, no way, no how. They will build around him and Lillard with Batum being a complimentary player. I think they will be buyers and could be a possible destination for Gerald Henderson, IMO. They are not going to rebuild and will actually throw major money at Nikola Pekovic this offseason.

How about we offer Ben Gordon to the Pacers for Danny Granger? Kind of redundant with MKG, but Granger would be the perfect guy to learn from. The Pacers need a guard that can shoot the three consistently and need to open up the SF position for George.
I think Gordon ends up in Brooklyn. Maybe if Cho gets creative we get Gortat to solve our C position allowing Mullens to stay at the 4.
