The latest of the NBA trade rumors circulating around the league is that the Golden State Warriors are negotiating with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors for a three-team, six-player deal. A fresh report from Yibada said that the Golden State is interested in getting Nerlens Noel since the Sixers plan to trade Noel, or Jahlil Okafor because of the logjam in the team's center position.

Here Is How The Current Trade Scenario Looks Like

The deal between the two teams will have the Golden State Warriors getting center Nerlens Noel, while the Sixers will get a package that consists of rookie guard Patrick McCaw, swingman Terrence Ross and center JaVale McCee. The Sixers will also get a 2017 first-round pick from the Raptors and a 2019 first-round pick from the Warriors. For its part, the Raptors will be bringing in shooting guard Nik Stauskus and power forward Kevon Looney.

The Celtics Could Get LaMarcus From The Spurs

Meanwhile, getting back into contention is the primary goal of the Boston Celtics. In this regard, the team hopes to get LaMarcus Aldridge from the San Antonio Spurs. The team's goal is a championship for next year and the year after that. They have already added big man Al Hortford in free agency and some NBA trade rumors indicate that they still have to get the right pieces to trade for a bigger name.

A report by Jabari Young of MySanAntonio.com indicated that the Spurs might be open to trading Aldridge. He is reportedly unhappy in San Antonio and could request a trade before the deadline. The Celtics are one of the NBA teams that have the best assets to pursue a deal with San Antonio. But there are some who believe that the trade is not really worth the price. The decision will be up to the Spurs, considering that Aldridge seemed not to be happy with his role in the team.
