NBA players and teams are the most unpredictable things in sports circles and new deals are made every day. While many stars are linked to certain cities, it doesn’t take them much time to change it. Anthony Davis was considered as the next big thing in Pelican, but he was traded to the Lakers.
Paul George switched from the Oklahoma City as soon as Russel Westbrook was signed by the Rockets. There are still a lot of players who might change their teams in the next few days. Here are the possible trade deals for
Golden State Warriors had no plans to get D’Angelo Russell but he ended up as a Kevin Durant replacement. While there is no doubt Russell is a great player, there is no place in the Warriors as they already have one of the best point guards in the form of Stephen Curry. Warriors are somewhat confused as D-Lo had an average of 21.1 points, 7.0 assists, 3.9 rebounds, 43.4 percent shooting, 36.9 percent 3-point shooting in the last season.

The Warriors side keeps on saying that they are not planning to trade away Russell and he’s an important part of their roster. But everyone knows things will change as soon as Klay Thompson is healed from his injury. It would be interesting to see what the Dubs team can do with Curry and Russell and how they manage. Warriors will probably trade away Russell or exchange him with some other player that fits in their team.
Bradley Beal is one of the greatest emerging NBA players whose numbers are far better than most of the established legends. In the last season with the Washington Wizards, Beal had an average of 25.6 points, 5.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 47.5 percent shooting, 35.1 percent 3-point shooting. There is no way the Wizards are leaving Beal at any cost and have already offered him a three-year contract extension at $111 million.
Bradley Beal is still not decided on what he wants to do. He is “most definitely” considering #Miami.

But the reason Beal might consider changing team is that the Wizards are nowhere close to title contenders list. It will be much better for Bradley to play for a team such as Miami Heat who have a serious shot at NBA trophy if Beal and Jimmy Butler makes a power duo.
Kevin Love was offered a four-year contract extension at $120 million by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2018. But things didn’t go as planned and Love suffered from serious injuries in the last season. The 30-year-old player had an average of 17.0 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 38.5 percent shooting, 36.1 percent 3-point shooting in the NBA 2018-19 season.
On this day in 2014, Kevin Love was traded from Minnesota to Cleveland for No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins 🏀

The Cavs are looking to trade the power forward as missed almost 60 games in the last season. If any team is willing to pay up a high sum or some young players and future picks, the Cavaliers will easily trade our Love. There are high chances that no team is willing to pay that high but someone like Trail Blazers might think Kevin is the perfect fit for their team and make trade arrangements.
Chris Paul was exchanged in a trade deal with Russel Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder planned to use him as an asset. There were a few teams interested in Paul with Miami Heat almost offering a deal for him. But Paul had such a massive contract that the teams are considering to wait for some time and get an affordable contract.

Despite his age of 34 years old, Paul still had an average of 15.6 points, 8.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 41.9 percent shooting, 35.8 percent 3-point shooting in the last season with Rockets. Chris will basically start his 2019-20 NBA season with the Thunder team and it will be his chance to prove his worth. If Paul manages to play as per his All-Star caliber, other NBA teams would gladly pay more for him.
