If you hear a few NBA rumors, it is best to just disregard them. You have to remember that most rumors are completely false and are started by people who do not know anything about the NBA. There are some rumors that are true but those are the ones that should be ignored because they will end up harming your reputation in the league. Here are the three most common NBA rumors that actually make sense.
The first rumor that makes sense involves the Chicago Bulls. They have been said to be a little bit worried that rookie forward Paul George will get trading during the upcoming NBA season. The Bulls have asked the league's executive committee to investigate whether or not George has been misbehaving in the front office. They have been trying to work out ways to keep him from being traded away so that they can still draft rookies like Chase Pittman and Jimmy Butler. The Bulls are also said to be interested in free-agent shooting guard Ramel Bradley in case they cannot get their hands on him.
The next rumor involves the Indiana Pacers. The Indianapolis Colts have been rumoured to be a possibility to move on from their present coach, Curtinson. They have offered their coach a five-year deal worth $20 million annually in return for his services. This is a big offer that is only going to be matched if he is able to turn around the Pacers quickly and show the coaching staff and fan base that he is serious about winning a championship in the near future. The downside to this move is that there is a strong chance that the Pacers will miss the playoffs altogether.
Another rumor involves the New York Nets and their free agent pickups. Most of the trades that have been made in the NBA involve one player getting shipped to the other player and vice versa. For instance, you might have Ben Wallace goes to the Orlando Magic and John Paxson go to the Chicago Bulls. Both of these moves have created enough buzz that the Bulls are a lock to make another playoff appearance while the Nets are in the midst of a rebuild.
The most popular NBA rumor talks about the trade rumors that the Miami Heat is involved in right now. It seems as though everyone has their own opinion of how good Miami is and how they should do things going into the future. Right now, they are still on the outside of the Eastern Conference but what they do no matter where they end up is going to be a big factor in what happens in the next few years.
A few other NBA players who may be moving around come from the New York Giants. LaRon Landry and rookie standout Andre Johnson seem to be on the radar as potential players who could be headed to New York. Should the Giants decide to move their top draft pick (no. 3 overall) from No. 8 to acquire one of these two players, it will be interesting to see if one of them can make an impact for the Giants right away. Maybe, the trade rumors that the New York Giants had been simply the product of the salary cap environment that has been set in place this summer. The reality is that the Giants will most likely have to find a way to get under the salary cap this summer in order to keep Landry around beyond this year.
Another interesting NBA player who is rumored to be heading towards New York is Jason Kidd. He was selected to play for the Dallas Mavericks during the offseason, and he did impress in helping to bring a championship to Dallas. He is a quality player who can score well, and he will likely attract a lot of attention from teams looking for a point guard. If the Mavs make a move and select Jason Kidd, will the Brooklyn Nets be interested? The answer may surprise you.
The New York Giants was mentioned early in this article as possible landing spots for some free agents who are headed to explore free agency this year. Right now, pacers number one overall pick Jordan Farmar is looking to hit the market for a long term contract, and the Indiana Pacers is also in need of a number one center after Yogi Ferrell left for the Sacramento Kings. Will anyone from either team be able to help the Giants in the near future? Only time will tell, but if Pacers number two overall pick Alexey Shevtsov is anything close to what he has shown so far, he will be in the mix of players who may end up wearing New York colors this year.
