Pacers listening to pitches on Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis could be next
With the trade deadline two days away, here’s a compilation of news from around the league from sources to Yahoo Sports.
Pacers listening to pitches on Brogdon, monitoring Sabonis
Multiple teams are saying the Indiana Pacers are listening to pitches on Malcolm Brogdon and are monitoring Domantas Sabonis as well. On Brogdon, the belief is the Pacers feel Caris LeVert can man the point guard adequately enough should they get a real deal for Brogdon, who’s in the second year of a four-year, $85 million contract. The Clippers have been scouring the league for more point guard help, so add his name to the list with Lonzo Ball, Terry Rozier, Ricky Rubio and George Hill.
Another Pacers guard possibly on the move
Pacers young guard Aaron Holiday seems to have fallen out of favor, and the franchise is looking for a first-round pick in return.
Nets making Spencer Dinwiddie available
The Brooklyn Nets are searching for more bench help. Sources tell Yahoo Sports they’ve dangled the rehabbing Spencer Dinwiddie and a second-round pick. Miami is an intriguing option, according to sources — Mo Harkless, Avery Bradley and Kendrick Nunn have been discussed. Dinwiddie also has a player option headed into the offseason, so Brooklyn could hold onto him and go the sign-and-trade route.
What the Magic want for Aaron Gordon
Aaron Gordon wants out of Orlando and the Magic are searching for a first-round pick and a good young asset in return. Minnesota is very interested in Gordon, but Orlando isn’t in love with Jarrett Culver, a top-10 pick in 2019 who hasn’t yet found his footing.
Knicks monitoring Evan Fournier
The Knicks are monitoring Fournier’s situation in Orlando as the Magic have made him available. Fournier is averaging a career-high 19.1 points and shooting 38.3% from 3 this season — on par with his nine-year, 37.6% accuracy. He’s on the last year of a five-year, $85 million deal.
No real offers for Kelly Oubre Jr. yet
Warriors swingman Kelly Oubre Jr. is getting interest around the league but there are no real offers to make Golden State jump just yet. His camp believes he can get a top-10 deal in free agency this summer, but there’s mutual interest on both sides.
Trail Blazers interested in JaVale McGee
JaVale McGee is starting to garner interest from the Portland Trail Blazers. McGee was solid for the Lakers in the bubble last summer, and the Blazers are looking for more frontline help. The Blazers are in a tricky spot because Jusef Nurkic appears to be on the way back, as reported by Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.
Possible Koby Altman replacement in Cleveland
If the Cleveland Cavaliers move on from general manager Koby Altman this offseason, expect Knicks vice president of strategy Brock Aller to be front and center of their plans. Aller and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert have a longstanding relationship, and the Gilbert family could be aiming to bring him home.
