NBA Trade Rumors: JR Smith Joining The Celtics? Demarcus Cousins, Kenneth Faried, Kevin Love, Join The Mix
The NBA season is almost here and for these set of players, they might be playing their last game on their respective teams as they are part of the hot names on the trading block.
Life of an NBA player is not easy. It usually requires sacrifice and commitment not only in playing basketball but on the business itself. To be traded to another team is not that easy for anybody. However, this is a normal scenario to any sports like NBA, NFL, MLB; and others. Trade usually happens when there's a conflict within a contract or a certain team is under construction.
No one is safe when it comes to trading. We've seen many occasions already about NBA superstars and franchise players getting traded. Back in 2010, LeBron James was traded for future draft picks to Miami Heat. Kevin Garnett pulled out the biggest trade in history, where he was sent to Boston Celtics in-exchange for 7 players. Ultimately, the trade pulled off as they won the NBA title the same year.
This year is no different as some of the most talented and notable names are currently on the trading block. Let's start off with the Champs, Cleveland Cavaliers JR Smith and Kevin Love.
JR Swish and K Love are two of the most versatile players today. That is why a lot of teams are trying to lure them and possibly recruiting them to join their team. JR Swish has major offers from team such as the historic Boston Celtics and his former team from the big Apple, the New York Knicks. Kevin Love on the other hand has been on the trading block topic since he first joined the team. Teams like Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks and other teams are trying to pursue this perennial All Star.
Demarcus "Boogie" Cousins. The big man from Sacramento Kings is not new in making some noise. Cousins is one talented player but sometimes his hard headed attitude gets the best of him. Still, a lot of teams are interested with Boogie because of his game. Toronto Raptors are the frontrunners and Dallas Mavericks are on the mix too.
Kenneth Faried. The Manimal is on the trading block for 3 straight years right now. Sources say that Denver Nuggets are leaning towards having a younger player as they are part of rebuilding process. No clear frontrunners yet on where will Faried land, but if you are looking for an explosive and athletic players, he might be the best fit for your team.
Notable names on the trading block includes, LA Lakers Nick Young, Denver Nuggets Danilo Gallinari, Phoenix Suns Brandon Knight, Sacramento Kings Rudy Gay, Minnesota Timberwolves Ricky Rubio and multiple All Star from Memphis Grizzlies, Zach Randolph.
