NBA RumorsNBA Trade Rumors: Analyzing Buzz on cheap Brook Lopez jersey, cheap Nerlens Noel jersey and MoreAdam WellsFeatured ColumnistNovember 5, 2016The NBA season is not yet two weeks old, yet it’s never too soon to start thinking about potential trades that could have an impact on the postseason picture.
Most teams are still in the process of evaluating their roster, hoping everything will come together for a playoff push over the long 82 game season, but there are outliers ready and willing to engage in discussions for marquee players so they can get salary relief and future assets to play with. The Nets were shopping Lopez before the trade deadline last year only to hang onto him.
This does seem like an opportune time for the Nets to finally pull the trigger on getting rid of Lopez. He’s one of the few watchable players on the team, but the roughly $44 million he’s still owed through next season is a problem for a franchise that is trending in the wrong direction and has been for years.
There’s also the matter of Lopez’s questionable health making him a prime trade candidate. He hasn’t played all 82 games since his third NBA season in 2010 11 and missed 77 games in 2011 12 and 65 in 2013 14.
With two full years of mostly good health under his authentic jerseys wholesale belt, the Nets need to take advantage of this opportunity to avoid the risk of him getting hurt and making it impossible to deal him.
With the Toronto Raptors jerseys’ frontcourt made thinner following Jared Sullinger’s surgery to repair a problem in his left foot, they desperately need to find size from somewhere.
In the same report from Stein about Lopez, he noted the Raptors are one of the teams that have shown interest in Philadelphia 76ers jerseys center cheap Nerlens Noel jersey.
Nothing is imminent, and Stein even noted Toronto’s first preference is to see what rookiescheap Pascal Siakam jerseyandcheap Jakob Poeltl jersey can do in an expanded role before trying to make a rash decision.
Sullinger’s official timetable to return is not yet known, though foot injuries tend to be tricky on big men anyway. cheap Kevin Durant jersey missed all but 27 games two years ago with various foot ailments that didn’t go away until the 2015 16 season started.
Noel has yet to play this season after having arthroscopic surgery to repair an issue in his left knee, which is the same knee he tore the ACL in during his one season at Kentucky and caused him to sit out the 2013 14 season after the Sixers drafted him.
Until Noel returns and it’s 100 percent certain his latest knee surgery is just a minor setback, not a sign of something that will cause long term issues, no team should be actively seeking to trade for him.
There are always going to be teams that get so desperate they don’t care about the risk as long as they feel comfortable enough with a player’s medicals to sign off on a deal.
Noel did show last year when he averaged 11.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game he can be an effectiveplayer. There’s just too much present injury risk to make any sort of offer for the 76ers to really think about entertaining right now.
