Media day as well as training camps for all NBA teams started Monday ahead of the season opener in October. The NBA book its first exhibition game on Saturday, Oct. 1, between the Golden State Warriors vs Toronto Raptors.
While some teams already upgraded their roster, others are still looking for trade talks from other teams.
It's been a while since we heard big trade rumors on NBA until this one surfaced. According to The Inquisitr, the Los Angeles Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Philadelphia 76ers are possibly setting up a blockbuster trade involving seven players which include some NBA superstars.
The trade scenario would be - Cavs power forward Kevin Love and Sixers small forward Dario Saric would go to the Lakers; in return, Cavs will get Sixers center Nerlens Noel, Lakers point guard Jose Calderon and shooting guard Lou Williams; while Sixers will acquire Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell and shooting guard Nick Young.
However, the report also disclosed that this trade set-up is likely not going to happen. The Lakers would be the loser on this because they don't need Kevin Love as they already have Julius Randle on power forward position.
As for Cavs, the deal is also less appealing because if they would release Love, they want to get an impact player that will help them defend the title.
As for the Sixers, they seem to be the one getting the better end on this as they will upgrade their backcourt with the arrival of Russell and Young and they can afford to lose Noel and Saric in their lineup.
In earlier reports by Parent Herald, only two teams are involved in this trade talks and it is between the Lakers and the Sixers. Trade scenario would be the Lakers will release D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle to the Sixers in return the Lakers would get Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. However, as the day goes by the deal seems not going anywhere until this new trade scenario appears.
Nevertheless, no confirmation on this from the three teams and we just have to wait if this trade deal will prosper before the NBA season starts.
