NBA trade rumours: Josh Smith, Al Jefferson, Brandon Jennings
With the trade deadline less than a week, NBA trade rumours are heating up the arena. The trade of Atlanta Hawks forward, Josh Smith is generating many rumours as reports about new teams joining the race for the player have emerged. Philadelphia 76ers have also emerged as one of the teams interested in Smith, but some experts suggest that Boston Celtics could be the destination of the player.
However, there is no clear picture as to which team the Hawks will trade Smith. Utah Jazz is juggling between the trade of Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson creating rumours of trade before the deadline concludes.
Both the players will become unrestricted free agents this summer, which will prompt Jazz GM, Ted Lindsey to trade them before the summer. Recent reports suggest that Jefferson might be more likely to be moved than Millsap. Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings has refuted the reports about a rift between him and the team.
Jennings stated that the reports were not true and he was focused on this season. Jennings said, “That never came out of my mouth. If anything, I’ve always said I love Milwaukee.Just because I got a new agent, that doesn’t mean I’m trying to leave Milwaukee or I’m unhappy. That has nothing to do with it.”
