The Miami Heat is literally feeling the heat because all of its superstars have all gone to other teams. With a 7-17 record, the team is currently third from the bottom in the Eastern Conference. That's probably the reason why they are now the subject of some NBA trade rumors that are saying they are eyeing John Wall of the Washington Wizards,
Superstars Have Left The Heat
The team is currently being led by Goran Dragic and Hassan White. But the two are having a difficult time pulling up the load. Their chances of getting a playoffs berth in April are very slim. A number of NBA trade rumors suggest the Pat Riley could be thinking of rebuilding the team from scratch in order to get to their premiere standing in the league.
Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel stated that there will be a probable trade between the Miami Heat and the Washington Wizards. As per these NBA trade rumors, the Heat will be exchanging Justice Winslow and Dragic for the Wizards' John Wall and Otto Porter. The Wizards are reportedly having some issues with Wall because the latter seems to be "unhappy" with the situation he's in.
Are The New York Knicks Setting Their Eyes On Casspi?
Meanwhile, other NBA trade rumors are centering on the New York Knicks. It is said that they are pursuing Omri Casspi of the Sacramento Kings in midseason. So far, the Knicks are enjoying one of their best seasons. They have a 14-10 record placing them fourth in the Eastern Conference. The Knicks have just won seven of their last games.
But with the acquisition of Derrick rose, Courtney Lee and Joakim Noah, the expectations for the team are high. They are reportedly assessing their current acquisitions. This lends credence to certain NBA trade rumors that say Phil Jackson is monitoring the trading activity in the league, especially those of their closest rivals.
