Of all the NBA trade rumors that are circulating online, this could be the biggest deal if it pushes through. This deal indicates that John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins could end up in Los Angeles, with the Lakers. But it will only happen if this particular 7-player, 4-team trade deal is consummated.
How Cousins And Wall Can Reunite
There were previous NBA trade rumors that centered on Wall and Cousins in the past few months. But the two are still safely ensconced in their respective teams. Previous rumor also indicated that the Boston Celtics might reunite the two. The latest rumor is that Wall might just go to Sacramento to be with his former teammate.
But recent NBA trade rumors are saying that the reunion of the two might just be possible if negotiations between the Lakers, 76ers, Kings and Wizards will push through. In this scenario, the Kings will acquire Jose Calderon and Brandon Ingram from the Lakers and the 76ers will return its 2017 and 2019 first-round draft choice they got from the Kings.
In return, the 76ers will acquire D'Angelo Russell from the Lakers. The Washington Wizards will obtain Jahlil Okafor from the 76ers, and the Wizards will get Jordan Clarkson from the Lakers. Lastly, the Lakers will get John Wall from the Wizards and DeMarcus Cousins from the Kings. Thus, the subjects of many NBA trade rumors, Cousins and Wall, will have their reunion.
Other Rumors Involving The 76ers
There are also some NBA trade rumors about the Portland Trail Blazers, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Minnesota Timberwolves. It seems a trade deal is now underway between these three teams involving Gorgui Dieng, Allen Crabbe and Nerlens Noel. In this scenario, the 76ers will acquire Crabbe, and a 2017 second-round draft choice from the Trail Blazers. The Timberwolves will then get Noel from the 76ers. Lastly, the Trail Blazers will acquire Dieng from the Timberwolves.
