NBA: Trade Rumors: Suns on Hawks Star?

By December 15 at the latest, the trade market will really pick up speed, and then the players who signed new contracts in the summer can be traded again. But the rumor mill is already churning. SPOX collects all trade rumors.

The 30 General Managers are already watching the market very closely to see which teams will become buyers or sellers after the first weeks of the season and which players will become available on the trade market. Here you will find an overview of all current trade rumours.

NBA rumors of November 19: Suns interested in John Collins?

Speculations about the departure of Hawks star John Collins have been around for years, but now they seem to be picking up steam again. Like Shams Charania (The Athletic) reported, Atlanta has opened trade talks with interested teams around Collins.

Interests are said to include the Phoenix Suns, who are still looking for a buyer for Jae Crowder. But, according to Shams, Phoenix is ​​said to be in the stomach to accept Collins’ long-term deal. The Big is still under contract at Atlanta for four years and $102 million after signing a long-term extension just last year.

A deal for Collins is therefore not imminent, instead executives from the league suspect that a Collins trade could only take place in a few weeks, maybe even months or just before the trade deadline on February 9th.

In Atlanta, Collins is playing his weakest numbers since his rookie season. He averages 12.6 points and 7.7 rebounds at 49.3 percent from the field and just 22.7 percent from downtown. The litter quotas are by far career lows.

Phoenix Suns: Trio reportedly on the trade radar

In addition to Collins, the Suns have other players on their trade radar. Phoenix is ​​said to have expressed interest in Harrison Barnes (Kings), Kyle Kuzma (Wizards) and KJ Martin (Rockets). This is also reported by Shams Charania.

Barnes has 11.6 points and 5.5 rebounds at 43.9 percent from the field so far this season. Kuzma had a strong start to the season in Washington, with his 18.3 points and 8.1 rebounds at a 45.5 percent field shot rate, the 27-year-old is scratching his career highs. The only 21-year-old Martin Jr. averages 10.9 points (52.9 percent FG and 34 percent three-pointers) and 4.7 rebounds.

Meanwhile, rumors about an upcoming three-team trade involving Crowder have not yet been confirmed. According to Shams, there were talks with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Hawks.

Trade Rumors: Sixers Star Tobias Harris On The Market?

Charania again: The Philadelphia 76ers have apparently asked the competition if they are interested in forward Tobias Harris. Kyle Neubeck from adds that Harris’ name has come up “quite a lot” in recent Sixers trade talks. Matisse Thybulle is also a trade candidate.

Harris is reportedly viewed by the Sixers as a model teammate. However, his role behind Joel Embiid, the currently injured James Harden and Tyrese Maxey has shrunk significantly, in the current season he has only 14.7 points and 6.2 rebounds. He does not live up to his lucrative contract (2 more years and 76.9 million dollars).

New York Knicks: Allegedly to have two guards

The New York Knicks are reportedly willing to hold talks about a potential trade between Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley. This also emerges from a report by Shams Charania. New York wants to solve the oversupply of guard positions.

The Quickley rumors aren’t new, according to Ian Begley (SNY) there should be great interest in the 23-year-old. Rose, on the other hand, is playing a rather disappointing season at the age of 34 (6.7 points, 40.2 percent FG).
