HoopsHype Dante Cunningham rumors
Teams around the league are heavily scouting Cunningham, with one NBA Western Conference scout telling Beyond the Beat recently, that front offices are intrigued by the second year forward out of Villanova, because, "the guy is everywhere and he gets the most out of his size." The guy is for sure a banger, and Cunningham also knows how to take a shot. While Portland's front office doesn't appear inclined to move Cunningham, apparently Cunningham is ready to make some move of his own by ditching the face mask he's been wearing over the past week.

An NBA source refuted a trade rumor involving the Sixers on Thursday, saying the team is "not going to" trade Marreese Speights to the Trail Blazers for former Villanova standout Dante Cunningham and a second-round pick. Teams are typically wary of trading big players for smaller guys. Though Speights, a third-year pro, hasn't been playing a lot lately for the 27-29 Sixers, he is a 6-foot-10 power forward/center who can score. phillyburbs.com
