Found this in a post on Hoops World Teams Looking to Trade First-Round Picks: Over the next few weeks, don’t be surprised if a large number of teams outside of the lottery try to trade their first-round pick. Multiple sources have told HOOPSWORLD that a lot of teams are trying to get rid their pick, which could make for an interesting draft night. "Almost everyone wants to get out of their pick in this draft," said one Western Conference executive. "For some teams, it’s hard to take on money for multiple years in this economic climate, especially if the player would not make an impact and help the team win immediately." That means contending teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder or Chicago Bulls may opt to trade their late first-round pick rather than draft a rookie who won’t really contribute (just like Reggie Jackson and Jimmy Butler this season). Expect plenty of trade rumors over the next several weeks.

Crazy trade idea from Sheridan Sports

I placed this trade idea in a game thread earlier, but this may be best discussed as a separate fanpost. If you would, indulge with me in the hyperbole that is this scenario. The trade would make...

@jeffskversky: Reported on @6abc tonight at 6 - @Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is planning to end his holdout. Jackson will probably be in camp Mon or Tues.

One rival executive is "almost positive" the Wizards will take Kanter with the sixth pick, or look to trade down.

One rival executive is "almost positive" the Wizards will take Kanter with the sixth pick, or look to trade down. Washington would grab Biyombo with the 18th pick if he’s still available, and otherwise would be comfortable with Kenneth Faried.

"Jeremy Tyler was the best interview I had in Chicago the last two years," one personnel boss beamed. "It wasn't just the interviews. It was how he carried himself. It was the way he approached it. I thought, 'Spoiled, pampered AAU guy. Bad background.' But he was articulate. He was polished. He came across really well." Said another: "He was much more charming in his interview than I ever would have imagined."

Is Thaddeus Young potentially a good option for the Wiz? "Taylor (St. Pete): Given the fact that Barnes is out of this draft and they have a ton of cap space, should the Wiz give Thaddeus Young a front-loaded contract? We really need a player like him." "David Thorpe: Agreed, good idea."
