Temper Expectations


NBA Executive Believes the League is in for a Quiet Trade Deadline

If you’re expecting some trade deadline fireworks, you should probably temper your expectations.

At least that is what one NBA executive says.

Granted, the NBA has already had a whirlwind of a season on the trading front as the likes of James Harden, Jrue Holiday, John Wall, Russell Westbrook, and Chris Paul were all moved in trades in the last 5-6 months. So now NBA fans are starting to get greedy and I’m here to be the bearer of bad news.

“I just think it’s going to be a boring deadline,” a Western Conference executive told ESPN.

At this point in time, the rumours that are re-occurring on social media lack much rationale. If anything, it’s just bloggers throwing up random trade machine simulations with little basis. The Toronto Raptors have notified Kyle Lowry that they will not be moving him at the deadline, while the Washington Wizards continue to remain unwilling to move Bradley Beal.

The other names that have been getting some attention are Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, and Tristan Thompson.

“I think they’ve got to take a long look at where they’re going,” said an East scout. “Are they really going to pay [Lowry] and have him there for three or four years?”

Apologies for ruining anyone’s day, but that being said, never say never – it only takes one big move to change everything.
