With the NBA trade deadline coming to a close on 20 February, transfer rumors of some big names like Pau Gasol, Russell Westbrook and Tyson Chandler have been doing the rounds. The latest we heard is that Jared Dudley would leave Los Angeles Clippers.
Portland Trail Blazers' Brandon Roy (L) drives around Phoenix Suns' Jared Dudley during the first half of Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference playoff series in Phoenix April 26, 2010.
Sparking off rumors that Los Angeles Clippers swingman would leave to other team, Marc Stein of ESPN tweeted, "Dudley only just arrived from PHX via J.J. Redick sign-and-trade in summer but hearing now he could be on move before Feb. 20 trade buzzer."
Los Angeles Clippers signed Dudley from the Phoenix Suns during the offseason with the hope of assisting Chris Paul but his performance was inconsistent throughout the season. He lost his place to Matt Barnes after Redick returned to the team. The last nail came when Hedo Turkoglu was signed, signaling that his days with the Clippers were counted.
Meanwhile, ESPN, citing sources, claims Phoenix Suns are a potential suitor for Los Angeles Lakers center Gasol. The Suns can also opt for swapping Emeka Okafor for Gasol, who almost moved to the Cleveland Cavaliers a few weeks ago when the Lakers tried to swap him with Andrew Bynum.
It is also reported that the New York Knicks might sign Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, in exchange for their center Tyson Chandler, said a report by The Latino Post. It added that the Knicks are barely competitive in the playoff battle in the conference, despite the acquisition of Andrea Bargnani, Metta World Peace, Beno Udrih and Tim Hardaway Jr. in the offseason.
