Nba trade rumors november 2014
The point guard position in Phoenix has been a revolving door for a while. While he hay not be the long-term solution, the Suns will get a long look at Payton before he hits free agency this summer.
Emmanuel Mudiay, the No. Dwyane Wade is back home, which is a feel-good story all around. Let's not forget, however, that Miami very much needs to be sparked out of its current five-game losing streak. The Heat now sit in seventh place in the precarious Eastern Conference. They are hopeful Wade's return will steady the ship.
The Cavs, meanwhile, will likely earn points with veterans around the league who witness them granting Wade's desire to return to South Beach. In Richardson, the Raptors get a young player under contract from one more season. As for Caboclo, his value to Sacramento could be his expiring contract.
This trade makes a lot of sense for the Cavs, who address their two biggest needs: Hill is a two-way floor general who can space the floor for LeBron James, while Hood is averaging a career-best The Pistons have been lacking depth at the wing position, and Ennis instantly fills that void. Los Angeles Lakers receive: The move certainly makes Cleveland healthier, more athletic and better on the defensive end. The Lakers sported a defensive rating of For context, the Spurs rank second in the league with a defensive rating of Clarkson, however, is shooting just The Lakers, meanwhile, obtain a much-needed first-round pick they do not have their own in due to the Steve Nash trade of as well as cap space they can use to pursue max-contract free agents this summer.
Chicago invests in a top pick from for a small price indeed: G Sheldon Mac cash considerations. Atlanta will waive Mac, while the Wizards open up a roster spot and potentially add a second-round pick to their plans. Brooklyn adds veteran toughness to its young core, while the Pelicans take a flyer on a former first-round pick who is still just 21 years old and has shown flashes of being an NBA 3-point shooter.
With Wade reportedly on his way back home, the Heat decided to add an extra dash of outside shooting to the mix. Babbitt is hitting Between the slashing games of Wade and Dragic, as well as the inside presence of Hassan Whiteside, Babbitt should get plenty of open looks whenever he is on the floor.
The Hawks, meanwhile, waived White to trim salary. Nelson joins former coach Stan Van Gundy in Detroit, where Nelson will likely find minutes as a veteran guard off the bench. The Bulls reportedly plan to waive Reed. New York Knicks receive: An All-Rookie first team selection last season, Hernangomez had fallen out of the Knicks' playing rotation in His move to Charlotte may give him more of a chance to play, but he'll join a frontcourt that features Dwight Howard, Frank Kaminsky, Cody Zeller and others.
O'Bryant, a power forward, is averaging 4. A modest little move by the Bucks to boost their frontcourt depth in advance of the stretch run. In exchange, the Nets will get the opportunity to jump start the flagging prospects of Vaughn, a first-round pick inwhile adding a second-round selection.
New Orleans Pelicans receive: F Nikola Mirotic second-round pick. A threat from 3-point range, Mirotic has appeared in 25 games for the Bulls, averaging For the Bulls, Asik returns to Chicago where he played from and joins a rebuilding Bulls crew. As for Allen and Nelson, they may or may not be with the team through the Feb.
With their playoff hopes rapidly dwindling after a strong start, the Pistons made a bold move to turn their season around with the acquisition of Griffin. The five-time All-Star is having another productive season, averaging For the Clippers, trading their long-time draw just months after re-signing him to a massive extension -- on the heels of sending Chris Paul to the Rockets, no less -- marks a shocking turn.
They're hoping the addition of two solid starters while dumping the four-plus seasons left on Griffin's deal will equate to a soft reboot, allowing them to rebuild without starting completely over. Okafor wondered about his place in the Sixers' rebuilding efforts before got started.
It may be a while before he suits up with the Nets -- to get in shape as well as learn the ins and outs of his new team -- but Okafor will have chances to make up for lost time on the court.
For the Sixers, Booker provides another big body to spell star center Joel Embiid and others as Philadelphia seeks to end its five-year playoff drought. It didn't take long for the Suns to move the disgruntled Bledsoe, whose "I Don't wanna be here" tweet early in made that much clear. From there, Phoenix got to work trying to move him and came up with what it sought -- an expiring contract in Monroe and picks to add to a burgeoning treasure chest of future Draft hope.
In Milwaukee, Bledsoe will free up superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo from his heavy load of ball-handling and scoring duties and should help the Bucks stay in the chase for home court in the first round of the playoffs.
