It has been widely documented that the NBA Draft Lottery is one of the most unpredictable events in the entire NBA. The NBA Draft Lottery is a free for all that takes place on a random basis and is determined by an obscure lottery draw process that involves the ESPN and NBA. This year the NBA draft lottery will be held in New York, which means that it will take place before the beginning of the NBA season. This is a great opportunity for you to get an idea as to who will be playing in your league this upcoming season.
With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the latest news trades rumors in the NBA. Here are some things that have been speculated about:
– Michael Christensen, the former University of Michigan star has reportedly requested a trade from the Detroit Pistons to the Los Angeles Lakers. He is a versatile player who can score around the basket but does need time to develop his outside game and will likely be more of a playmaking wing than a lead guard. While it is a surprise for any fan, the Lakers are expected to acquire him in a package deal with former Michigan standout Rasheed Wallace, who was traded to Houston last week.
– Tommy McCall, the former University of Pittsburgh star has also been rumored to be headed to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for a future draft pick. McCall is a streaky shooter with a quick release but is best suited for the open floor. If he can work his way into the rotation, he could develop into a great second or third option off the bench.
– The Miami Heat are still believed to be in the running for the services of Andre Miller. Though they may be in a position to acquire Miller if he decides to become a free agent, they will not have much choice in the matter if he decides to sign with another team. Miller, one of the best shooters in the league, can help out the Heat as an outside shooter.
– Dante Finnelly, the former Chicago Bull, has also been rumored to be heading to the Phoenix Suns in a sign and trade deal. He is a versatile offensive player who can play both the shooting guard and small forward position. If he decides to come to Phoenix, he will provide a good backup point guard for the Suns.
