LeBron James wants the Los Angeles Lakers to acquire Kyrie Irving from the Brooklyn Nets in a trade.
On Thursday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Denver Nuggets and Washington Wizards made a trade. Wojnarowski: The deal is not for any stars, but they are very productive role players. Will Barton averaged 14.7 points per game last season, and Monte Morris averaged 12.6 points on nearly 40% shooting from the three-point range.
July 3 marks the fourth day of free agency, and eight-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard still remains as a free agent. Howard spent this past season on the Los Angeles Lakers, and he averaged 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. At one point, he was one of the top ten players in the entire NBA when he played for the Orlando Magic for the first eight seasons of his career.
