Default NBA Rumours for Today

Cleveland Trading for Antawn Jamison?
Source: Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com


While plenty of media outlets are speculating about a potential deal between Cleveland and Phoenix, we’ve heard some talk of a possible trade between Cleveland and Washington actually. The deal would essentially be a cost-cutting move for the Wizards, sending Antawn Jamison and filler (Mike James) to the Cavs for Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic. Wallace seems likely to retire, and Pavlovic is on a non-guaranteed contract for next season. It’s not clear whether the Wizards would need to surrender the #5 pick. Jamison is attractive to the Cavs since he’s exactly the type of combo forward they were missing to match up with Orlando’s Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu.
Cleveland would do better with Jamison than with Shaq in my opinion.

Could Memphis Re-Acquire Kevin Love?
Source: Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com

No GM in the NBA is apparently more active right now than Minnesota’s David Kahn, as he’s apparently set on “making a big splash in his first draft” according to one NBA executive, and is “talking to everyone” at the moment. One rumor that is making the rounds has Memphis sending Minnesota Kevin Love in exchange for the #2 pick (and filler). Minnesota would then draft Ricky Rubio, which could help them significantly with their ticket sales, and still have the #6 pick at their disposal, which they could use to take someone like Jordan Hill.
I think the raps can take advantage of the new GM of the T'Wolves

Tracy McGrady Could be Traded by Rockets
Source: Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com

Houston also seems to be very active in trade talk, particularly trying to move Tracy McGrady we’re told. McGrady will be out for the first 20-30 games of the regular season, but there is some thought that he might be able to help a playoff team down the stretch, particularly since he’s in a contract year. Its tough to see how many teams would be able to absorb the 20+ million dollars he’s owed next season. The New York Knicks might be one of them. Houston would be looking for a shooting guard in return.
Can he help us? Not immediatly

Any Thoughts?

playoff help!


i believe tmac's contract is up at the end of the year, so that would be $20 million expiring dollars, which is a huge asset.

They do, and they`ll end up being a lottery team next season. That team is sinking, and fast.

I know why the Knicks want McGreedy. They prolly don't even care if he is injured the whole entire season, they just want the contract. Also I doubt Rubio would want to play in Minny

I think the cavs would do better with Jamison than with Shaq. But Shaq's contract is expiring.

same with new trades and signings.
