NBA Trade Rumors

The NBA Finals is not over, yet there are already a lot of NBA trade rumors floating around regarding some of the league?s biggest stars. While LeBron James and the Cavs will try to make history against Steph Curry and the Warriors, the 28 other teams are already busy looking forward to next season. With teams looking to make their squad stronger, there have been several NBA trade rumors already even if it is still pretty early.

One of the big names which has popped up in NBA trade rumors recently is Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose. Rose is the hometown hero, having been born and raised in Chicago. In the past, the former MVP led the Bulls to several deep playoff runs but a series of serious knee injuries have made Rose a shell of his former self right now.

While he is trying to regain his MVP form, the Bulls though may have other plans as it has been reported by ESPN that Chicago has had discussions with the New York Knicks about trading Derrick Rose.

The Knicks was awful the last several years and now they are trying to rebuild in hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs. The same ESPN report mentions that the Knicks want to upgrade at the point guard slot and the Rose may be the right guy for the job. At the moment, veteran Jose Calderon starts at point guard for the Knicks but that may soon change if Rose does indeed get traded.

According to Fox Sports, the Knicks may not have enough talent to trade for Rose, so it remains to be seen if anything materializes in the offseason. Still, weirder trades have happened so be sure to check back here to find out if Derrick Rose will be wearing a red or a blue jersey come opening night next season.
