Wizards Land Bogdanovic for 1st Round Pick

The scorching Washington Wizards made a deal to bolster their bench and add some much needed shooting and depth by adding now former Brooklyn Net sharp shooter Bojan Bogdanovic.

There is a Trade Market for Derrick Rose

The Derrick Rose experiment in the Big Apple hasn’t been a huge success and has included a few bizarre speed bumps, most notably Rose leaving the team on a game day and going AWOL to be with family. Despite all of this, there appears to be a trade market for the 28-year-old former MVP (seems [...]

Kings Owner Vivek Ranadive is a highly creative software and business tycoon, but has proven to be a slightly meddling and legitimately loopy basketball mind. He was the one person who still loved DeMarcus Cousins and refused to trade him until the bitter end. He has actually suggested and wanted his team to play 4-on-5 [...]

Cousins Trade Was Right Move, Wrong Deal for Kings

After approximately one million stories about the seemingly never-ending saga between the Sacramento Kings and DeMarcus Cousins and who was more at fault for the organization’s struggles and whether they should or shouldn’t, would or wouldn’t trade the supremely talented and supremely ornery center, the Cousins era in Sacramento ended Sunday night after the All-Star [...]

Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls Still Have Interest in Jahlil Okafor Trade

Big men-headlined NBA trades continue to go through, and yet still Jahlil Okafor remains with the Philadelphia 76ers.
