NBA trade rumours: Dollars make move toward potential Jay Crowder deal; Mavs attract interest for a major role player

The 2023 NBA trade deadline is next week and the rumor mill is starting to get over potential trade targets. We’re starting to get a clearer picture of the buyers and sellers ahead of the deadline, but we’re yet to see any deals that will seriously change the landscape for the rest of the season. As we approach the February 9 deadline, rumors will only fly the heat We should start to see some deals happen during this week.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the latest rumors.

The Suns-Crowder saga should end by the trade deadline after both sides agreed he would stay away from the team while they find a suitable deal for him. Crowder did not play this season after reports surfaced during training camp that he was unhappy about losing his starting spot to rookie Cam Johnson. Crowder has drawn commercial interest from several teams across the league, including the Miami Heat and the Miami Heat Atlanta Hawksbut the Suns only granted permission for the Milwaukee Bucks to meet the forward 3rd and D, in the athlete.

The Bucks and Suns have reportedly been in serious talks for some time now about a trade deal for Crowder, which would include sending Jordan Nora, George Hill, Serge Ibaka and a second round of compensation to Phoenix. However, both sides may look to expand the deal in hopes of a Suns return forward in a trade from another team. Crowder will fit perfectly into Milwaukee’s style of play from a defensive standpoint, and will give them a boost in perimeter shooting the Bucks are only 16th in 3-point percentage points.

Hawkes refused jazz Trade for Collins

Utah has been reported several times to be interested in Hawks forward John Collins, and it appears that he has gone as far as Atlanta to set up a business framework to get something done. Earlier in the season, the Hawks asked about Malik Beasley and Jared Vanderbilt in exchange for Collins, per The Athletic. But when Utah responded by demanding a first-round pick, Atlanta refused, and talks stalled.

Despite this bump in the road, Utah’s interest in Collins remains “strong,” though from a logistical standpoint it makes little sense given the presence and rise of Lauri Markkanen this season. Apart from jazz, the Houston Rockets They also showed interest in Collins, even though newly promoted Hawks president Landry Fields made it clear to the Jazz and any other interested team that they weren’t desperate to get rid of Collins, who averaged 13.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. It’s unclear exactly what the Hawks want in exchange for Collins, but given the potential trade that could happen for the Jazz, it looks like Atlanta is trying to add some wing depth and perimeter defense.

Considering Dallas reached the Western Conference Finals a season early, the first half of the season was disappointing. Luka Doncic played at the MVP level as always, yet the Mavericks are only 26-25, which is happily enough for seventh place in the chaotic West this season. However, it has been reported that Doncic has been more engaged in people’s conversations, which indicates that he wants to improve this list. There wasn’t much rumor surrounding what Dallas could do before the trade deadline, but the Jazz have shown a “strong interest” in forward Dorian Feeney Smith, according to The Athletic.

Vinnie Smith is undoubtedly the best defender in Dallas. Over the years he has developed his 3-point shooting so much that last season he was shooting at 39.5 percent. His efficiency has taken a step back this season at 34.8 percent from depth, but since returning from nearly a month away with a groin injury, Vinnie-Smith has scored 11.3 points and shot 36.1 percent from the 3-point zone. All that being said, though, Dallas reportedly has a high asking price for Vinnie Smith, and won’t move him unless they sign him up as a player of “star caliber.”

A few days ago it was Reported by Yahoo Sports that the Nuggets were “gauge” commercial interest around sophomore guard Bones Hyland. That has now progressed to active trade talks, according to The Athletic. the Timberwolves They are said to be interested in the high-energy guard who averages 12.3 points and shoots 37 percent from depth. In exchange for Hyland, the Nuggets are said to be looking for defensive-minded frontcourt players, as well as a first-round pick. The decision to transfer Hyland stemmed from the Nuggets’ desire to free up some space for the impending free agency of backup guard Bruce Brown, as well as reported clashes between Hyland and Nuggets coach Michael Malone.

Amid a disappointing season in Charlotte, the Hornets are open to trading Mason Plumlee and Kelly Ober Jr., according to The Athletic. Jalen McDaniels has attracted interest from teams like the Suns, wild birdsjazz Pacers And spurs, but the Hornets have placed a high value on the forward. With McDaniels poised to hit unrestricted free agency this summer, opposing teams may wait until this summer to try and sign him. In connection with Plumley, it has been reported that Hornets Looking for a first round pick versus the big guy.

Oubre is the most interesting target among the players, given that he averages 20.2 points per game. But he was discharged last month while recovering from left hand surgery to repair a torn ligament. This injury occurred on January 3, and he was expected to miss 4-6 weeks, putting him closer to return before the trade deadline. However, if he does not return within the next week, the value of his trade could drop, limiting what the Hornets can get for him.
