PBT Extra: Talking early season NBA trade rumors

8 Comments

Normally trade rumors don’t really get going until Christmas, but like an early snowstorm we’ve been hit with a blanket of rumors to start this season, so Kay Adams and I break them down.

No, Rondo is not going to the Knicks, New York simply doesn’t have the pieces to make that work. Plus I don’t think Danny Ainge is eager to move Rondo. That said, expect Iman Shumpert’s name to come up in a bunch of other trade talks.

Then there are the big men Omer Asik and Kenneth Faried. Asik will get moved at some point this season, but Faried is less of a sure thing as Denver is not under any pressure to make a deal.
