One more day, more trade rumors around the NBA...
1) Kevin Garnett
According to Ramona Shelburne of the LA Daily News, the Clippers are actually NOT looking specifically into trading Butler and Bledsoe for Garnett.
"To be clear, in a double negative sort of way: I'm not going to say Clippers acquiring KG is NOT an option. There's just nothing doing now. Clippers stance has always been that they'll listen, but it has to make a lot of sense now and in future. They've got a good thing going."
2) Danny Granger
According to FOXSports Ohio, Houston is one team reported to have a keen eye on Indiana forward Danny Granger. The Pacers aren’t totally against keeping the 29-year-old forward, who has missed all of the season with a knee injury. But following the emergence of All-Star Paul George, the Pacers are taking and making exploratory calls.
3) Nikola Pekovic
According to CSNNW, the Trail Blazers have been rumored to having interest in the third-year center for some time and Pekovic has heard those same rumors and considers it a compliment. “That's really nice when you hear that other teams like Portland really want to bring you in. That means that I'm doing a good job and they like what I'm doing. That's something nice.”
At 6-11, 290 pounds, Pekovic would be the perfect frontcourt mate to two-time All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge and rising stud Nicolas Batum. Pekovic says “If people are talking about me playing along side players like that, that's really nice to hear.”
4) Andray Blatche
First reported by FOXSports Ohio, Brooklyn has placed forward Andray Blatche on the market, according to multiple sources. The Nets are looking for a draft pick in return. Portland, looking for ways to shore up its bench, might have an interest.
