    Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys. Mandatory Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Tony Pollard has proven to be a potential star with the Cowboys but, if Dallas sticks with Ezekiel Elliott, where could they trade the young RB? It certainly appears that the Dallas Cowboys are heading towards a crossroads with their running back room. Ezekiel Elliott remains under contract for quite a while and, frankly, it’s not going to be anytime soon that they can get out of that deal with the way it’s structured. But meanwhile, Tony Pollard has emerged as a dynamic, dangerous playmaker. Considering that Pollard is younger, has less mileage on the tires, and is seemingly just better right now — although, admittedly, Elliott has unwisely been playing through injury for the past few weeks — it would make sense if the Cowboys pivoted to Pollard as the lead back. But if Jerry Jones and the organization wants to remain committed to Elliott, then they would be almost foolish to let a player with Pollard’s talent and intrigue waste away as a backup when he could offer...
    Sep 22, 2019; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) runs with the ball in the first quarter against Miami Dolphins defensive end Taco Charlton (96) at AT&T Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports The Dallas Cowboys clearly have something in running back Tony Pollard. Here are three hypothetical trade destinations for Ezekiel Elliott if they were to plan on moving him. The Dallas Cowboys participated in a thrilling Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Even though they forced overtime, it was the Raiders who left AT&T Stadium with the 36-33 victory. If there was one thing to take away from the game, it is that the Cowboys truly have something special in running back Tony Pollard. Not only did he pick up 68 yards from scrimmage in the game, but he also returned a kick 100-yards for a touchdown. That leaves some questions as to what the Cowboys should do at the position. Could trading Ezekiel Elliott ahead of the 2022 season be an answer? If that is the case, here are three...
    After canceled lecture, free speech debate roils science academia Hochul unveils revamped NY state COVID data site, signs transparency bills into law The Ben Simmons drama continues. On opening day of the 2021-22 season, news broke that 76ers coach Doc Rivers threw the three-time All-Star out of practice and that he'll be suspended for one game for "detrimental conduct" to the team. What happened? ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Simmons "declined several times to sub into a drill," adding that his "reluctance to physically and mentally engage" with the 76ers has been a consistent theme since he has returned to the team. MORE: Ben Simmons' suspension, explained It's no secret at this point that the 76ers have discussed potential Simmons trades with teams and are looking for a lot in return. It's also no secret that Simmons would like a fresh start.

    Ben Simmons apparently thinks he has too much of a social life to play for the Portland Trail Blazers or Toronto Raptors. After an embarrassing playoff performance, the rumor mill surrounding Ben Simmons has been churning rapidly. The 25-year-old still has four years and $145 million remaining on his contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, but the chances of him suiting up for them in the upcoming season seem less and less likely by the day. On Thursday, news broke via Jason Dumas of Bleacher Report that the relationship between the Australian guard-forward and the Sixers is “beyond repair”. Simmons supposedly isn’t even answering teammate Joel Embiid’s phone calls these days. .@JDumasReports joined @MorningRoast957 to discuss the rift between Ben Simmons and the 76ers ???????? pic.twitter.com/4Kh2k9vT3Q — 95.7 The Game (@957thegame) August 5, 2021 Ben Simmons wants to go to CaliforniaDumas also told a Philadelphia radio station that Simmons “doesn’t want to go to a bad situation.” Apparently, Simmons’ definition of a bad situation includes both the Portland Trail Blazers and the Toronto Raptors, but not because of the teams...
    With Ben Simmons’ options dwindling down for teams to choose from, and his cutting off communication with the Sixers, his trade destinations have shrunk even further. The estranged Philadelphia 76er, Ben Simmons, has recently cut off all communications with his team. All conversation has been strictly between Simmons’ agent and the Sixers, and that is even sparse. For all of this, one would think that he’d be signed pretty soon due to the severity of the lack of communication between the two parties, however it’s looking less successful on Simmons end. The trade tactics from the Sixers have been concerning to say the least, at least when it comes to getting rid of Simmons earlier on this summer.Simmons’ landing destinations span from Golden State to San Antonio, but there are few takersOne request that stood out was the Sixers’ asking for Andrew Wiggins and James Wiseman in return for four first-round draft picks. While it sounded ridiculous then, Simmons seems adamant about going to Golden State. It could be a good move in theory, but it does sound like it’s...
    Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports With the Los Angeles Lakers finding their point guard in Russell Westbrook, here are the top three destinations for free agent Kyle Lowry. This NBA offseason, there are set to be plenty of teams in search of a starting point guard, from teams on the rise to those planning to contend for a title. Perhaps the most attainable point man this summer will be veteran Kyle Lowry. The Los Angeles Lakers were considered a potential landing spot for Lowry, but they essentially crossed him off their list on the night of the 2021 NBA Draft. The Lakers decided to pass on Lowry and agreed to add Russell Westbrook via a trade with the Washington Wizards. With the Lakers now out of the point guard picture, where will Lowry hypothetically end up? Here are three of the top destinations for the 16-year veteran. 3. Toronto RaptorsOnce the 2020-21 regular season reached its conclusion, it appeared as though Lowry’s time with the Toronto Raptors ended. Even though the team opted against moving him at the trade...
    Damian Lillard should have a big trade market if the Portland Trail Blazers put him on the block. After nine years in the Pacific Northwest, All-NBA point guard Damian Lillard may have played his last game for the Portland Trail Blazers. Lillard has been all-league on six occasions, as well as a six-time Western Conference All-Star. Though the Trail Blazers have been in the NBA Playoffs regularly, Portland has far too often exited in the first-round for a team built around a player of his caliber. Lillard just turned 31-years-old and could be looking to play the second half of his career elsewhere if he does request a trade. Here are the five most likely teams to trade for Lillard this offseason.

    Getty Collin Sexton #2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers smiles during warm up for an NBA game against the Toronto Raptors at Scotiabank Arena. As of now, the Boston Celtics look to be content entering next season with Marcus Smart penciled in as their starting point guard. However, recent rumblings on the trade market could potentially have Brad Stevens reaching for his eraser. While All-Stars Damian Lillard and Ben Simmons will continue to be floated as longshot acquisitions, a handful of intriguing young ball-handlers could be emerging as far more realistic targets. Recently, San Antonio Spurs starter Dejounte Murray did little to denounce trade speculation after The Athletic’s Zach Harper reported he could be “gettable” via trade.

    British TV presenter says Bruce Willis was absolutely appalling during interview A Tesla ‘death cross’ has appeared, for the first time in more than 2 years Here’s the thing that makes Kris Bryant such a desirable commodity on the trade market, now that it looks like the Cubs are officially going to be sellers: Pretty much every single contending team can look at Bryant and think, “Yep, we’ve got a spot for him!”  That’s rare with a position player, but Bryant has all kinds of versatility. Basically, he’s not a middle infielder or a catcher, but that’s it: Just this year alone, he’s started 15 games at third base, 13 in right field, 10 in left field, eight at first base and four in center field. He’s not necessarily a Gold Glove guy at any position, but he’s certainly capable at each position, which adds a lot of extra value.  MORE: Five Twins who could be traded soon And he doesn’t mind moving around, even during games.

    Mandatory Credit: David Berding-USA TODAY Sports The St. Louis Blues may shake things up after another early playoff exit, and these four teams make sense as trade destinations for Vladimir Tarasenko. Since a surprising run to the Stanley Cup in 2019, the St. Louis Blues have lost in the first round of the playoffs in back-to-back years. The roster may look different next season, with multiple free agents who may depart, and Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff has reported the Blues are exploring the trade market for winger Vladimir Tarasenko. Tarasenko has two years left on his contract and a full no-trade clause. But Seravalli added he has alerted the Blues to “several teams” he’d be willing to be dealt to, and he’s unlikely to block a move. When healthy, Tarasenko has been an elite goal scorer. From 2014-19, only John Tavares and Alex Ovechkin scored more than his 182 regular-season goals. But he has played just 34 games over the last two seasons, after undergoing surgery on both shoulders.Vladimir Tarasenko contractTarasenko has two years and $15 million remaining on...

Rodgers has stopped short of formally demanding a trade, but he has let the Packers know he does not want to return, according to various reports during the NFL Draft. The Packers have Rodgers under contract through 2023 and could call his bluff by sticking to their repeated plan not to trade him. What’s Rodgers’ leverage? Well, he could decide to sit out the season or even retire and be available as full-time “Jeopardy” host. Then the Packers will have received nothing in return for a player who, if traded, would be worth multiple high draft picks and/or players who can help develop 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love. So, if the Packers reverse course and Rodgers gets his wish, where could he...
    Getty Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers leaves the field following a game against the Denver Broncos at Lambeau Field on September 22, 2019 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Green Bay Packers have been steadfast in their determination to move forward into 2021 with Aaron Rodgers as their starting quarterback, but the three-time NFL MVP may have other plans for what his future holds in the upcoming season. Speculation about Rodgers’ eventual departure from the Packers was kicked into overdrive on Thursday when ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that Rodgers had told key members within the organization he is not planning to return to the team next year. While the Packers have attempted to change his mind and gone as far as offering him a contract extension, Rodgers remains unhappy and could threaten retirement to force a trade. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, though, Rodgers would prefer to be traded and even has a “wish list” narrowed down to three destinations: The San Francisco 49ers, the Denver Broncos and the Las Vegas...
    Getty Lauri Markkanen shoots the basketball while being heavily defended in an April 4 game against the Brooklyn Nets. The trade deadline came and went, and Lauri Markkanen remains a Chicago Bull. But there’s little optimism in his returning to the Windy City next season. Since the arrivals of new faces Nikola Vucevic and Daniel Theis, the fourth-year forward has seen his consistent starting role slide to just two appearances over the last seven games. Markkanen has been very vocal in his identifying as a starting player in this league. If the Chicago Bulls don’t have such a role to offer, isn’t parting ways the best outcome for both sides?

    Taylor Hall is likely going to be on the move before the NHL Trade Deadline, but where are the best spots for him to land and rebound?  It’s been a season to forget for Taylor Hall — and that frustration extends beyond his individual performance. The Buffalo Sabres have failed to win in 18 consecutive games — the longest losing streak seen in the NHL since the inception of the shootout era. Team performance aside however, Buffalo’s prized winger that was acquired via free agency on Oct. 11 has consistently looked like a shell of his former self — that being the aforementioned Hall. When the 29-year old inked a one-year, $8 million deal with the Sabres prior to the condensed campaign, the hockey world knew that the former first-overall pick was betting on himself. From Edmonton to New Jersey to Arizona to Buffalo — Hall seemed to have found his match with franchise center Jack Eichel, in an attempt to recapture his MVP form from 2017-2018. Instead, Hall is stuck on two goals in 34 games this season, and...

Ted Cruz mocks Ocasio-Cortez, trip to Cancun at CPAC The offseason drama refuses to rest. © Provided by For The Win ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that superstar Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has not requested a trade, but does have destinations in mind if he were to request to be dealt. Ignore the mental gymnastics that it takes to not make a trade request while also kind of making a trade request at the same time. Schefter reported that the four teams that Wilson would be OK being traded to are the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders, and Bears. Yes, the Bears. Wilson appears to be seeking a team that will commit to building the offensive line talent that he feels like he needs to be successful. That team can still be the Seahawks, but it appears Wilson is applying pressure to his current team before formally demanding a trade to another team. It’s important to remember one thing regarding Wilson: the team that hypothetically trades...
    There are three teams listed as reported trade destinations for Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry. This season, the Toronto Raptors were expected to be contenders in the Eastern Conference, especially after they retained Fred VanVleet on a long-term deal. Instead, the Raptors sit in fifth place in the conference standings with a 16-17 record, where there are five teams that are half a game behind them. With the trade deadline approaching on March 25, there is a chance that the Raptors could choose to trade away point guard Kyle Lowry, who hits free agency at the end of the year. But where would he go? According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers could become potential trade destinations for Lowry.

    Getty Russell Wilson reportedly gave the Seahawks his preferred trade destinations. Tensions between the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson continue to rise as multiple reports have indicated early this offseason. The Athletic’s Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks penned a must-read article detailing the growing rift between Wilson and the Seahawks. Things have gotten so bad that “Wilson’s camp” gave the Seahawks a list of his four top trade destinations: Raiders, Jets, Saints and Dolphins. “Wilson and Carroll have won at least nine games in each of nine seasons together,” The Athletic explained. “They have made the playoffs every season but one, won a Super Bowl and lost another. But the Seahawks haven’t reached the NFC Championship game since 2014, and Wilson’s frustration has escalated to the point that his camp has broached potential trade destinations with the Seahawks.

    New York City middle schools reopen for in-person class as Covid-19 surge fades Former Trump SBA official Sery Kim to launch Texas special election run Russell Wilson's relationship with the Seattle Seahawks has seemingly been revealed to be quite strained over the last month. Wilson went on a post-Super Bowl media tour where he took all of his issues with the team public. Seattle's front office was apparently not happy Wilson did that, and it led to teams calling the Seahawks to see if Wilson was available to be traded. NFL Network's Michael Silver reported the conversations that were held on those calls has led teams to believe the starting price for Wilson is three first-round picks. © Provided by The Big Lead Russell Wilson | Christian Petersen/Getty Images Up to a certain point, all this just felt like a lot of posturing.

They currently sit at 14-15, only ninth in the Western Conference. Luka Doncic has been excellent statistically (as expected), but the team as a whole has struggled.

    As of this writing, there are many questions surrounding the New York Jets and their erstwhile starting quarterback, Sam Darnold, heading into the 2021 NFL season. Three years after being picked third overall in the 2018 draft, the young signal-caller has yet to blossom into a star in the professional ranks, which has led to rumors suggesting that the Jets might be ready to move on with someone new behind center. According to a recent report, there are multiple teams that could potentially show interest in Darnold, including the Chicago Bears, who appear ready to part ways with soon-to-be free agent Mitch Trubisky. As explained on Tuesday by Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets will likely be monitoring the Bears in the coming days, considering how the team is reportedly considering trading for Carson Wentz. While Chicago has a chance of acquiring Wentz as Trubisky’s replacement, it was suggested that the organization could consider Darnold as a trade target if another team makes a better offer for the erstwhile Philadelphia Eagles quarterback. “The price for Darnold figures...

    With rumors suggesting that the New Orleans Pelicans are open to trading Lonzo Ball ahead of the March 25 deadline, a recent report listed five potential destinations for the fourth-year point guard, including the Toronto Raptors. On Saturday, CBS Sports‘ Sam Quinn explained that Ball is the NBA’s “preeminent distressed asset,” a top collegiate prospect whose career has lacked stability thus far, considering how he’s played for three different coaches and five different lineups across two teams. He suggested that the 23-year-old may need to be traded to a team that could provide him with the stability he desires, one that could allow him to properly leverage his high basketball IQ, versatile skill set, and above-average size for his position. In his entry for the Raptors, Quinn wrote that Ball could be the ideal replacement for the aging Kyle Lowry as Fred VanVleet’s backcourt partner. While the former UCLA star is not a good a shooter as Lowry and does not draw charges as well, he could potentially thrive through the guidance of the Raptors’ “revered” coaching staff, which has...

    Another productive NFL quarterback is on the trade market, expanding the deep pool of available passers this offseason. Matthew Stafford is reportedly done with the Lions and has requested a move elsewhere, according to multiple reports. He has spent his entire 12-year career in Detroit, but wants the opportunity to return to the playoffs before retirement. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft joins Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz and Tua Tagovailoa as passers potentially set to leave their teams via trade — not to mention the likes of Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton, who hit the open market in free agency. After a healthy 2020 season produced more than 4,000 passing yards and 26 touchdown passes to 10 interceptions, Stafford will be one of the most sought-after options of that group, perhaps behind only Watson in stature. Several AFC teams seem to be good matches for Stafford, including the Colts, Patriots and Steelers. The 32-year-old — he turns 33 in February — is better suited for a roster able to compete immediately than one needing to...
    Deshaun Watson reportedly has teams in mind when it comes to where he would potentially like to be traded to and two AFC East organizations are on the top of that list. The New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins rank Nos. 1 and 2 respectively on Watson’s trade-destination list, the Miami Herald reported Saturday. The Jets are on the top of the list because of the team’s recent hire of Robert Saleh as their next head coach, the Herald reported. While the Houston Texans didn’t make the playoff this season, they have made it twice since Watson became the team’s starting quarterback. Watson entered the league prior to the start of the 2017 season. Neither the Jets nor the Dolphins have made the playoffs in that span. Both teams have only made the playoffs once since the 2010 season. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM It’s unclear exactly what it would take for either team to trade for Watson. Predictably, both teams would have to mortgage their futures and potentially miss out on a top rookie quarterback...

Report: Deshaun Watson has named his top two preferred trade destinations Deshaun Watson reportedly knows where he’d like to be traded, and the top team on his list might surprise you. © Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Deshaun Watson reportedly knows where he’d like to be traded. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Watson has told associates this week that he would like to play for the New York Jets. Watson is said to be a huge fan of new Jets coach Robert Saleh, and he wanted the Houston Texans to interview him for their head-coaching job. Amid reports that Watson wants to move to the Miami Dolphins, the Houston quarterback would indeed welcome a trade there as well. However, his preference would be to move to New York. Given the Jets’ struggles lately, it’s kind of a surprise to see Watson want to go from one dysfunctional organization to what is often perceived as another. If true,...
    Getty Zach LaVine #8 of the Chicago Bulls dribbles the ball against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on March 05, 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana. NBA free agency has resembled the wild west with the level of superstar movement over the past few years. From June 2018 to January 2021, five of the seven active MVPs changed teams — several did more than once. But with the disassembly of the Houston Rockets over the past year, the volatility around the league is sure to simmer following the James Harden trade. However, a single move could set off another wave of teams exchanging stars to find their best possible roster to make a championship run. Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine was among five potential superstars CBS Sports’ Sam Quinn could see moving on from their current teams in the next few seasons — the most obvious being Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal, who leads the league in points this season. LaVine is second in points behind Beal as his stock is sky high, signaling an opportune time for...
    Getty Eagles TE Zach Ertz The Dallas Cowboys theoretically can achieve the rare double whammy of improving their roster while weakening a division rival. With the possibility raised that the Philadelphia Eagles might move on from Zach Ertz, the Cowboys were grouped by FanDuel among three “most likely destinations” for the Pro Bowl tight end, along with the Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals. Dalton Schultz filled in pretty well for the injured Blake Jarwin in 2020, with 63 receptions for 615 yards and 4 touchdowns, but the Dallas Cowboys could still use an upgrade at the position. Dak Prescott is already surrounded by weapons at RB and WR, and adding a strong receiving tight end like Ertz could have this offense bordering on unstoppable. Eagles fans might not like to see Ertz stay within the NFC East, but the landing spot would make a ton of sense. ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    Julio Jones (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) If the Atlanta Falcons do attempt to trade Julio Jones, these five teams make sense as realistic landing spots. As the Atlanta Falcons transition to 2021 with a new GM and head coach coming, the franchise is entering a rebuild. Some notable players could be on the trade block, and earlier this week Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported wide receiver Julio Jones has been “discussed” as a trade piece this offseason. Jones will not play in Week 17, due to a hamstring injury that has bothered him almost all season. In nine games he’ll finish with 51 catches for 771 yards and three touchdowns. In the five games he played at least 80 percent of the snaps, he averaged seven catches and 115 yards per game. He has tended to play through ailments during his career, so that points to the severity of this hamstring issue if he could not get on the field. Jones is under contract through 2023, with cap numbers of $23.050 million, $19.263 million and $19.263 million. The...
    BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Boston is a reportedly a possible landing spot for superstar James Harden. The Athletic reports that that the Houston Rockets guard has added the Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers to his list of preferred trade destinations. That list also reportedly includes the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat. The Athletic notes that “the viability of a possible deal with the Celtics. . . is unclear at this time.” James Harden’s list of preferred destinations now includes the Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers, sources tell @TheAthletic. Inside another wild week in Houston— reported with @KellyIkoNBA https://t.co/zSGC4Vf7dW — Sam Amick (@sam_amick) December 24, 2020 Harden torched Boston for 42 points in an 11-point victory in Houston last season. He didn’t have as much success in his visit to Boston, shooting just 7-for-24 overall and 4-for-17 from three-point range, but his 21 points helped Houston escape with a one-point victory. The three-time reigning NBA scoring champion is in quarantine until Friday. He was declared unavailable to play Wednesday after the NBA determined he violated...
    It appears that disgruntled Houston Rockets superstar James Harden’s list of desired trade destinations has grown to include the Portland Trail Blazers and the Boston Celtics. Citing a report from Sam Amick and Kelly Iko of The Athletic, Bleacher Report wrote on Thursday that Harden added the Celtics and Trail Blazers as two other possible landing spots if the Rockets decide to trade him. Previously, the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks were mentioned among the shooting guard’s preferred destinations. A separate story from ESPN 97.5 Houston’s John Granato also suggested late last week that the Celtics and Toronto Raptors had replaced the aforementioned four teams as Harden’s top favorites. Talking about the players could offer in a deal for Harden, Bleacher Report wrote that the basic assumption for the former team is that fourth-year forward Jayson Tatum would be “untouchable.” The outlet suggested that the Celtics could send a package featuring wingman Jaylen Brown, combo guard Marcus Smart, and one or two future draft picks in order to land the three-time NBA scoring champion. Such a...

With movement on a potential deal stalled, the 31-year-old All-Star has now expanded his list of preferred destinations. The Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers have now been added. Initially, Harden only wanted to be dealt to the Brooklyn Nets or Philadelphia 76ers, then added the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks to his list soon after. The Rockets have struggled to find an amenable deal around the NBA and it's beginning to seem like they're in no rush to move their superstar. The Celtics are an interesting option.

    As the 2020-21 NBA season draws closer, rumors surrounding Houston Rockets superstar James Harden continues to heat up. When he demanded a trade from the Rockets, two teams immediately emerged as the favorite landing spots for “The Beard” – the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadephia 76ers. Unfortunately, the Nets don’t have enough assets that they can convince the Rockets to engage in a blockbuster deal, while the Sixers were hesitant to include Ben Simmons in the trade package. After the Nets and the Sixers failed to secure a deal with the Rockets, two teams have replaced them as new “favorites” to land “The Beard.” In a Twitter post, ESPN 97.5 Houston radio host John Granato revealed that the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors are now the top two favorite trade destinations for Harden. “An impeccable source says the Raptors and the Celtics are the favorites right now for James Harden. It’d be a package for Pascal Siakam and more or Jaylen Brown and more.” If they are indeed willing to sacrifice Siakam and Brown, the Celtics and the Raptors...
    The James Harden trade saga is taking new turns each week. The 2018 MVP has made it quite clear that he wants out of Houston. But a potential trade is yet to go down for the Beard. When Harden asked for a trade, he mentioned Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers as his preferred destinations. However, it appears that Harden might not get what he asked for.

Mandatory Credit: Mike Wyke/Pool Photo via USA TODAY Sports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski recently revealed that the Rockets are trying to expand the trade talks for their superstar.

He’s made that pretty clear so far without having to say much. © Provided by For The Win There are a bunch of teams in the NBA who could use Harden on their roster and would probably trade for him if they could. But just because a player wants out and a team wants him doesn’t mean that the player will land with that specific team. Harden is extremely valuable, and that’s why he isn’t out of Houston gone yet. The Rockets have to actually agree to trading Harden and they have to get something back in return. And for a player of Harden’s caliber? That return haul better be tremendous.

    BOSTON (CBS) — If James Harden gets his wish and is traded by the Rockets, it looks like the Celtics are going to have to deal with the NBA’s reigning scoring champion more than they’re used to. Harden has reportedly added two more teams to his preferred destination list, and they’re both Boston rivals. Harden has reportedly added the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat to his wish list, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, as the star guard tries to force his way out of Houston. Harden has already put the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets on his list of preferred landing spots. The Celtics will be battling with all four of those teams for Eastern Conference supremacy in 2020-21. If any of those teams add Harden to their roster, it would greatly sway the balance of power in the East on paper. Imagine “The Beard” joining Giannis in Milwaukee, or being added to a Miami team that went to the Finals last season. None of those scenarios are ideal for the Celtics. Harden torched Boston for 42...
    Houston Rockets superstar James Harden has been the center of trade rumors since the 2020 offseason started. With their failure to achieve their main goal last season, “The Beard” has expressed his desire to leave Space City to chase for his first NBA championship title somewhere else. When he first demanded a trade from the Rockets, there were only two teams on his list of favorite landing spots – the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers. However, recently, he decided to add more to the list of teams where he wants to play next. In a Twitter post, Shams Charania of The Athletic revealed that “The Beard” is now considering the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat among his “preferred trade destinations.” “Sources: James Harden now has the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat among his preferred trade destinations, along with the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets.” The Bucks and the Heat are both intriguing landing spots for Harden. Like the Nets and the Sixers, they are also expected to be top contenders for the Eastern Conference supremacy in the 2020-21...

(Michael Reaves/Getty Images) In addition to the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers, the eight-time All-Star would also be open to joining the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Harden is under contract with the Houston Rockets for at least two more years, including a $41 million salary this season. Following the departures of general manager Daryl Morey and coach Mike D’Antoni, Harden and fellow former MVP Russell Westbrook requested trades from the Rockets during the offseason. Westbrook’s request was granted in a deal that returned John Wall and a heavily protected future first-round draft pick. As Houston’s training camp opened, Harden was nowhere to be found but Instagram. He posted pictures from rapper Lil Baby’s...
    Following the Philadelphia Eagles‘ decision to bench Carson Wentz for rookie Jalen Hurts during their Week 13 loss against the Green Bay Packers, rumors have begun to swirl regarding the quarterback’s future in the City of Brotherly Love. As suggested by Sporting News, there are two teams that have stood out so far as possible trade destinations for the struggling signal-caller, including the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos. Although it’s still unclear whether the Eagles have already decided to promote Hurts to a long-term starting role and move on from Wentz, the publication noted that one of the team’s best options would be to trade the former No. 2 overall selection to a quarterback-needy club. This, as pointed out, might be a difficult task, considering that Wentz is under contract with Philadelphia through the 2024 season. Moving him would cost the organization $33.8 million in “dead money,” though this would result in salary-cap savings of $853,000 in the 2021 campaign and long-term cap relief in the coming seasons.   Elsa / Getty Images Discussing why the Colts could be...
