The New Orleans Pelicans“ the intention to switch to some of their more expensive contracts has caused them to return several times as part of the NBA trade rumors. With several teams showing a long-term interest in the injured Lonzo Ball, the New Orleans Pelicans have indicated they would be prepared to let him go. In return, they expect Eric Bledsoe to be transferred, with the 31-year-old guard still only in the second year of a 4-year, $ 70 million contract.
The New Orleans Pelicans have, in recent days, been linked with a three-way trade that could involve Eric Bledsoe and Lonzo Ball. Meanwhile, as we enter the final hours before the NBA trade deadline, several teams have lined up for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ JaVale Mcgee Center.
NBA Trade Rumors: Will Eric Bledsoe Be Used To Facilitate A Lonzo Ball Trade?
According to Joe Vardon of Athletic, the New Orleans Pelicans want to pass both Eric Bledsoe and Steve Adams. They are currently in talks with multiple teams and looking to negotiate a trade package that sends Bledsoe and a first round pick to an interested team.
The New Orleans Pelicans have an impressive young team with people like Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. Lonzo Ball recently suffered a fracture that sees him out for the remainder of the season.
In such a scenario, they investigate the possibility of Lonzo Ball being used as a reward for a business partner open to accepting contracts from Eric Bledsoe or Steve Adams. Eric Bledsoe was the starting center for the New Orleans Pelicans, although given Ball’s expensive contracts and long-term injury, such a deal could prove difficult to close before the trade deadline of the NBA.
NBA Trade Rumors: Several Teams Interested In Cleveland Cavaliers’ JaVale McGee
JaVale McGee now has a realistic chance of being moved by the Cleveland Cavaliers before the NBA trade deadline, according to Shams Charania of Athletic. Several playoff contenders apparently view JaVale McGee as a realistic addition as the season stumbles towards its commercial end.
The 33-year-old is in the final year of his contract with the LA Lakers and has been a solid bench player for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season. He averages 8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game, and can be a good addition for teams looking for depth at center position.
