NBA Trade Frenzy Starting Early as Draft Day Looms

In case you weren’t paying attention to the NBA today, you missed everything!

Everything is happening! Everyone is on the move!

The day started with the Los Angeles Lakers making a big move all but cementing Lonzo Ball’s faith in the upcoming NBA Draft. In his first move at the helm, Magic Johnson dealt D’Angelo Russell and the dead weight contract of Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for former All-Star Brook Lopez and the 27th overall pick in the 2017 Draft.

The Lakers now hold three first round picks in this year’s draft. As well, they shed the final three years and $54-million left on Mozgov’s contact while absorbing Lopez’s expiring contract. With Lopez off the books following this upcoming season, the Lakers are estimated to have $30-million in available cap space for next season – the year a certain Indiana Pacers superstar is set to hit free agency.

The wildness didn’t stop there, and I’m not talking about the Los Angeles Clippers making DeAndre Jordan available on the trade market.

Dwight Howard is on the move again.

After just one year with his hometown Atlanta Hawks, Howard has been traded to the Charlotte Hornets for Marco Belinelli and Miles Plumlee as well as the 41st pick in Thursday’s Draft. The Hawks will send their 31st pick to Charlotte.

The Hornets have been looking for a viable center to fit in a line up run by Kemba Walker and it seems like Howard will be that man. Meanwhile, the Hawks are saving a ton of cap space and seem to realize that Paul Millsap is on his way out as well.

Time for the Hawks to embrace the process!

Well wasn’t that quite a day in the NBA?
