This article is going to entail what trade rumors and discussions are going around the NBA. This is the time of year when trades begin to take place as the halfway point of the season will be fast approaching.
- Free agent Carlos Boozer is in talks with the Milw
aukee Bucks to join the team. Boozer would be a welcome addition and instantly provide veteran leadership to a young and promising squad. Milwaukee has taken a step back so far in 2015, however adding a 13-year veteran who has averaged 16.2pts and 9.5reb would provide stability to the front-court.
2. Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets?
Surprise, surprise. Dwight Howard is supposedly an unhappy camper in Houston. Why? Because James Harden is the unquestioned leader for the Rockets and Howard still considers himself a superstar.
The rumor is Dwight Howard along with PG Ty Lawson would head to Brooklyn for Center Brook Lopez and SF Joe Johnson. The question is what team does it benefit more. Houston is in win now mode, while Brooklyn should be in rebuilding mode. Adding Howard and Lawson would still have Brooklyn with an enormous payroll with a still lousy team. Perhaps pairing Lopez and Johnson with Harden would be a better fit.
If this trade happens, I would say Houston gets the better end of the deal. Why? The 2 Nets are true professionals while Howard is a malcontent with Lawson not far behind.
3. Former number 1 pick Anthony Bennett to the D-League?
The 2013 number 1 pick asked to go to the D-League on Monday so he can work on his game. On his way to possibly being the biggest number 1 pick bust in NBA history, Bennett can’t get on the floor for the Toronto Raptors. On the season he has appeared in just 9 games, while totaling 14 points and 15 rebounds in 48 total minutes.
