Now Is The Time For You To Know The Truth About Nba Trade Rumors | Nba Trade Rumors

The NBA Trade Rumors is back in full swing following the NBA playoffs. The playoffs are right around the corner, and it is time to get all of the trade talk going. Don't worry; I've got your back on this one. NBA trade rumors start after the draft and continue throughout the summer. Here's a look at some of the hot topics we should be paying attention to leading up to the trade deadline.

The New York Nets is in a tough spot, especially after acquiring poor free-agents in Patrick Patterson and Rashard Lewis. Theoretically, the acquisition of two solid players should fix a lot of problems, but the problem that they created has actually been exposed. Theoretically, the Nets should be able to add some scoring to their lineup, but the latest trade rumors indicate that they might add a center instead. The latest rumor involves the New York Nets moving their pick of Eric Bledsoe to the Sacramento Kings for Andre Iguodala. Whether that move will make a difference is a question that only the future can answer, but here are some possible destinations for Patrick Patterson and Rashard Lewis:

New Jersey Nets: The New Jersey Nets is probably going to try and make a splash in this year's offseason, acquiring big men Tracy McGrady and Jason Kidd via free agency. The two stars are perfect fits in New Jersey, where both are All-Star caliber players. If the Nets believe that they have found a long-term starter in Kidd, they will most likely give serious consideration to acquiring a player like Iguodala, who could play big minutes in New Jersey. However, if they feel that their current starting five is good enough, it could prove difficult for them to acquire the star they covet. The Nets have several other free agent options as well, including starters Joe Dumars and Chris Johnson.

Los Angeles Lakers: There has been a lot of talk that the Los Angeles Lakers could be on the verge of a major change in personnel, specifically within the front office. The team is reportedly trying to move Kobe Bryant to another position in the rotation, possibly point guard. While there has been initial reports that this is indeed the plan, it does not appear that this is the direction the Lakers intend to go. Instead, they will most likely attempt to complete the large moves they need to complete this rebuilding process, which could leave them needing a player or two in return in order to accomplish their goals this season. There are rumors that the New York Nets and the Utah Jazz could be trade partners in any event.

Milwaukee Bucks: The Bucks are still pursuing a number of different players, including Chris Paul, Carmello, T.J. Ford, Antawncourt and even shooter Rashard Lewis. It appears that the Bucks may pursue one specific player in this draft, but they have yet to make any firm offers known to the candidates they met with over the weekend. There are rumors that the Bucks would like to include Rashard Lewis in any trade, but whether this is realistic or not is really in doubt. If you are a fan, then you have surely noticed how much the team has struggled the last couple of years, and this has led many fans to hope that this year's version will bring a change in the way that the Bucks play.

Chicago Bulls: The Bulls seem to be on the market for some quality big men, and it appears as though they may pursue trade options such as Andre Iguins or Peja Stojakovic at the deadline. If the Bulls do end up acquiring a big man, they will also need to decide whether or not they will retain rookie C.J. Watson. The Bulls will have to decide whether to wait until after the trade deadline in order to make any big moves, or they can wait until the draft and pick the best player available at that time.

Utah Jazz: The Jazz have yet to make any official moves, so all they have to do is wait for the trade deadline and hope that someone will offer them something substantial in return. This is because no team, especially the one holding the lottery pick, wants to lose its top players and then lose its second round pick in next month's draft. Unless the Jazz receive compensation for losing a player (which is highly unlikely), they will probably have to settle for nothing.

Philadelphia Flyers: The Flyers have made no secret that they want to acquire a solid number two center, whether it be in the form of a rental player or a draft pick in either Rashard Lewis or Chris Simon. Philadelphia is rumored to be very interested in either of those two, but they have also shown a willingness to listen to offers for Rashard Lewis as well. Simon would seem to be a logical target for a team looking to offload a number two overall pick.
