There are very few players whose availability can shift the league's focus all by themselves. One of them may just be entering the market, after Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis reportedly requested a trade over the weekend. That's the latest from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, and perhaps we all should have seen this coming. Once Davis signed with Rich Paul, LeBron James' childhood pal/agent/consolidator of power, the writing was on the wall for a Davis departure. All fingers will point to Los Angeles on the assumption that the Lakers will attempt to pair James and Davis and begin the next era of Lakers prominence. That assumption is well-founded. The timing of Davis' trade request has a subtext to it because of rules within the NBA's collective bargaining agreement, and this may have the side effect of keeping Davis away from the Boston Celtics, who have long been rumored to be chasing Davis on the trade market. The NBA's "Rose Rule" extension was put in place to allow teams to pay … [Read more...] about NBA Trade Rumors: How does Anthony Davis trade request impact the Sixers?
With a shortage of useful players in the frontcourt, the Sixers will be in all sorts of rumors between now and the February 7 deadline. The latest report, by way of Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, ties them to Knicks power forward Noah Vonleh. Vonleh's name will be familiar to a lot of Sixers fans, who kept track of the Indiana product during the first season of Sam Hinkie's rebuilding project. Fortunately, the Sixers were able to come away with Joel Embiid and Dario Saric from the 2014 NBA Draft, instead of betting their future on a guy who has spent most of the last four seasons trying to find his place in the league.Vonleh's first four seasons, split between stops in Charlotte, Portland, and Chicago, were a bit of a mess. He didn't impact the game as a rebounder despite some great physical gifts, struggled to step out and hit jumpers despite showing promise there in college, and was still in the process of figuring out how to leverage his gifts as a defender.The Knicks may … [Read more...] about NBA Trade Rumors: Sixers have expressed interest in Knicks forward Noah Vonleh
There is perhaps no city more interested in backup quarterbacks and point guards than Philadelphia. At least in basketball, you don't have to bench Ben Simmons completely to get Bobby Hoying involved. The Markelle Fultz saga (I feel like saga is just attached to his name now, at this point) has thrust backup guard T.J. McConnell back into the spotlight for Philadelphia, with various rumors bubbling to the surface about his value around the league. Who better to turn to than Adrian Wojnarowski, who joined Ryen Russilo on last Thursday's episode of The Russilo Show, and had this to say about McConnell's value on the trade market: T.J. McConnell, who had been the source of some trade talks...think about this, T.J. McConnell probably could have gotten, in fact, I'm very confident T.J. could have gotten Philadelphia a first-round pick in the last few weeks. Markelle Fultz probably can't, think about that. There are so many teams who need a point guard, either a really strong backup or a … [Read more...] about NBA Trade Rumors: Can Sixers afford to turn down first-round pick for T.J. McConnell?
