Jazz inquired about possibility of trading for OG Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr

Michael Scotto: Sources: Before eventually trading Rudy Gobert to the Timberwolves, the Jazz inquired about the possibility of trading for Raptors starters OG Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr. Plus, what the Gobert trade means for the Kevin Durant trade market on @HoopsHype. hoopshype.com/lists/nba-rumo…
According to rival NBA executives who’ve spoken to the Nets, the asking price remains high for 12-time All-Star Kevin Durant, and is expected to go up following the boatload of draft picks the Timberwolves gave up to acquire Rudy Gobert. Brooklyn is seeking a combination of the best assets from teams, including any All-Star player(s), rising young players with All-Star potential and substantial unprotected draft picks and pick swaps where applicable.
Before agreeing to a new deal with the Raptors, the Celtics and Pacers expressed interest in signing Thaddeus Young during free agency, HoopsHype has learned. Young agreed to a two-year, $16 million, per Yahoo’s Chris Haynes. The deal is partially guaranteed for the second year, and because it was an extension for two years or less, there is no trade restriction for either player, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.
