We have officially reached the week of the trade deadline, so the rumors should be coming fast and furious in the coming days. Here's a roundup of some news this morning after the All-Star Game.
Bargnani deal unlikely to happen until summer
The Toronto Raptors have been looking to deal the massively underachieving Andrea Bargnani for quite some time now, but according to Doug Smith of the Toronto Star, a trade appears unlikely until the offseason.
The Raptors have been discussing a possible trade with the Chicago Bulls for Carlos Boozer, but they are hesitant to take back Boozer's massive contract, which runs through 2014-15 and owes him about $47 million. This latest news should please Bulls fans, who are worried about the team making a deal that downgrades the talent just in order to get under the luxury tax...again.
Clippers not in advanced talks, but "could be aggressive" at deadline
There have been a ton of trade rumors surrounding the Los Angeles Clippers of late, but according to Dan Woike of The Orange County Register, the team is not in any advanced trade discussions. However, the Clippers are willing to listen to offers and "could be aggressive" when it comes to making a move before the deadline.
The two biggest rumors involving the Clippers is the possible Kevin Garnett deal, which has Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan going to Boston. Another rumor that surfaced Sunday was a deal sending Bledsoe to the Utah Jazz in exchange for Paul Millsap.
DeJuan Blair expected to be moved
San Antonio Spurs reserve big man is likely going to be moved before the deadline, according to Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy. Blair has pretty much fallen out of the Spurs' rotation and is averaging career-lows almost all the way across the board. He was nearly traded last year, but San Antonio surprisingly held onto him, and his play this year has only lowered his trade stock.
