Trade Rumors

Sources said Howard learned of management’s attempts to cut his minutes in midseason and shared a mutual interest with the Rockets front office to move him before the trade deadline.

It seems the Celtics are content to wait until the 11th hour to make a decision on whether to keep R.J. Hunter or James Young for their final roster spot. While most NBA teams are making their final roster moves to allow players to clear waivers by the Monday deadline, both Hunter and Young practiced Saturday while the organization desperately sought at least a second-round pick for one of the two. The Celtics would like some type of compensation for either of the players, each of whom were first-round picks, and they have decided to move Hunter or Young with their decision to retain 2016 second-round pick Demetrius Jackson as a third point guard.
The Miami Heat aren’t actively trying to trade ‎point guard Goran Dragic. We know this because if they were, it wouldn’t take the Heat long to find a taker. Around the league, though, there’s a growing sense that Dragic is a name to keep tabs on for those of you (and, yes, we mean everyone) who enjoy the sport unto itself known as NBA Wheeling & Dealing, since Miami is a team rival executives are watching closely.
