NBA trade rumors are starting to swirl around to Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside, Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe and Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker. The three players mentioned have been regulars in the rumors mills for past few months. And it seems, they are all together in a rumored deal.
For one, Whiteside becomes a revelation player for the Miami Heat for the past two years and his value is really high that every team is really pushing to acquire him. The Suns are fully loaded in the backcourt spot with Brandon Knight and Devin Booker in the line-up making Bledsoe a dispensable asset.
As for Parker, after three years in the league, he's not seen a full potential and the Bucks might not wait to see that happen. And now, rumors are suggesting that it might be best if the three players could be figured out in a huge trade deal.
According to NBA Trade Rumors machine, the Heat, Bucks and Suns are all considering a possible trade deal which involves six players and a future draft pick. Trade scenario is suggesting as follows:
1. The Miami Heat will get power forward Dragan Bender from the Suns, power forward/center Greg Monroe and a first-round draft pick from the Bucks;
2. The Milwaukee Bucks will then acquire Eric Bledsoe from the Suns and center Hassan Whiteside from the Heat;
3. Finally, the Phoenix Suns will obtain forward Jabari Parker and shooting guard Rashad Vaughn from the Bucks.
However, The Inquisitr further breaks down the validity of this trade deal by going through the NBA league office policy. First, Whiteside just freshly signed a four-year, $98 million contract with the Heat. This means he cannot be traded until December 15 and this deal might right now.
Second, the Bucks cannot absorb roughly $5 million additional salaries coming from Bledsoe and Whiteside. Lastly, same goes to the Heat who could be receiving approximately $4 million excess salaries from the incoming players.
Having said this roadblocks, it seems that the rumored NBA trade deal between the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns moving Hassan Whiteside, Eric Bledsoe, Jabari Parker and others will not be plausible in the eyes of the NBA league office.
