NBA Rumors (ESPN Insider)

Postby JSM on Tue Jan 20, 2004 11:33 am

Swol posted this a week or so ago (called NBA Buzz), here is the same thing, but it's an updated version.

Keith Van Horn (Knicks)
Blazers
Cavs

Jan. 20 - It sure sounds like Keith Van Horn's days in New York are numbered. Isiah Thomas keeps talking about landing an athletic forward to run with Stephon Marbury -- a not so subtle dig at Van Horn. The question is whether Thomas can get someone to take on the last two years, and $30 million of Van Horn's contract. Thomas has tried to convince Portland and Cleveland to take him, to no avail. Is there another team out there that wants Van Horn? Conventional wisdom says no.

Jamal Crawford (Bulls)
Knicks

Jan. 20 - The Chicago Sun-Times reported Sunday that Bulls GM John Paxson and Knicks president Isiah Thomas had spoken about a Crawford-to-the-Knicks trade. According to the New York Daily News, the Knicks offered Shandon Anderson and Frank Williams for Crawford and Eddie Robinson. While the Bulls are exploring trade options for Crawford, it's unlikely that they'll pull the trigger on the Knicks trade.

Eric Snow (Sixers)
???

Jan. 20 - The Sixers quietly have been exploring a Snow trade for the last few weeks, but they aren't finding any takers. While a number of teams love him as a player, the five years remaining on his contract are a killer.

Ron Mercer (Spurs)
Pistons

Jan. 20 - The Spurs have been trying to move Mercer for about a month. The Pistons have been trying to get him from San Antonio, but don't have anything the Spurs want in return. The two teams have tried to find a third team to make something happen, but so far, nothing has worked out.

Darius Miles (Cavs)
Knicks
Heat

Jan. 20 - Miles is having another disappointing season and has fallen out of favor with head coach Paul Silas. Miles skipped practice on Monday, raising Silas' ire. The Knicks made a run at Miles two weeks ago, offering Moochie Norris in return, but the Cavs understandably balked. The Cavs countered with Miles for Frank Williams and Othella Harrington, but sources say Isiah Thomas balked. The Heat also have shown limited interest in Miles, but they probably don't have enough ammo to make a deal.

Rasheed Wallace (Blazers)
Mavericks
Knicks

Jan. 19 - Don Nelson and Blazers GM John Nash met Saturday to discuss a trade that would send Wallace to Dallas for Antawn Jamison and Tariq Abdul-Wahad. The meeting lasted about 20 minutes and ended without a deal. Nelson told the Dallas Morning News on Monday that the talks with the Blazers are "dead" and "it never really was alive." ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported this weekend that owner Paul Allen told Nelson he wanted to keep Wallace. Does that mean that 'Sheed is officially off the trading block?

Antawn Jamison (Mavs)
Blazers
Cavaliers

Jan. 19 - He's safe for now. Trade talks with the Blazers broke off over the weekend, meaning Jamison can breathe a little easier for now. The Cavs also have shown some interest, and the Mavs have pursued Zydrunas Ilgauskas in the past, but Mavs owner Mark Cuban continues to claim he's happy with the team and isn't inclined to make a trade.

Juwan Howard (Magic)
Cavs
Raptors
Sonics
Nuggets
Pistons

Jan. 19 - GM John Gabriel has been shopping Howard, along with swingman Gordan Giricek, since mid December. Howard's agent, David Falk, told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday he doesn't know if the Magic will trade his client, but he thinks having both "Juwan and Drew Gooden is redundant. ... The Magic need to make a trade to get a big guy," Falk said.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Jalen Rose has been pushing the Raptors to make a trade for Howard. The Cavs, Sonics, Nuggets and Pistons have also reportedly shown interest.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim (Hawks)
Cavs
Blazers
Sonics
Jazz
Warriors

Jan. 19 - The interest in Abdur-Rahim around the league is enormous. The Akron Beacon Journal reported Sunday that Abdur-Rahim wants out and the Cavs wouldn't mind taking him off the Hawks' hands. The New York Post reported the Blazers are trying to send Rasheed Wallace to Atlanta for Abdur-Rahim and Chris Crawford.

The question is whether the Hawks actually will trade him. Don't count on it, unless two things happen. One, the sale of the team finally is approved by the league sometime in January. And two, the Hawks find takers for Theo Ratliff and Jason Terry. If they can get those guys off the books, trading Abdur-Rahim gives them lots of cap flexibility.

Are there any rumors about Lakers having a trade?
I think I remember reading that the Lakers may have a trade, but will not discuss it openly. Hmmmm

The mavs should forget about sheed. He's not a center. If Cuban wanted to challenge the Lakers when the fab4 gets back together, he should go after Dampier. Dampier gives Shaq alot of problems. in 2 games against Shaq he's averaged 16 pts 17 reb. Shaq 19 pts 8 rebs while he was completely "in shape" and healthy.

I think the Mavs should try and go after Big Ben, he is just what they need. He's a center who plays D and rebounds the ball...I am just not sure what they wold offer Detroit

Big ben against all other teams would be factor for the mavs. But against shaq he's too small.

no, Swol did it the same way. More people will read it if it's broken up, than if it was a page long post
