The new NBA season is underway and in just three weeks, there are already NBA rumors circling around the league. Now, big names with the likes of DeMarcus Cousins, Nerlens Noel and Brook Lopez are in this years' trade buzz.
DeMarcus Cousins might go to the Portland Trailblazers and it's not far from happening, according to Headlines & Global News . "Boogie" is now in his sixth year with the Sacramento Kings and it seems that he could be on the trade block pretty soon. Cousins will become an unrestricted free agent in 2018 so if the Kings can't decide now, they might lose him for nothing.
Last month, Philadelphia 76ers big man Nerlens Noel underwent a knee surgery and there's no specific timetable for his return according to Bleacher Report. With Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor playing phenomenal this year, it seems that Noel might be in this years' NBA rumors. Sources say that the Toronto Raptors are showing signs of interest for Noel.
The Brooklyn Nets also got their 7-foot center back this season as Brook Lopez has been draining threes in their victory against the Detroit Pistons. But with a record of 2-4, it appears that the Nets are still struggling to get some wins and could face a major overhaul in their roster.
Lopez is the only attractive piece the Nets could shop in order to get young players and draft picks from other teams. In a report by Inquisitr, it looks like the Chicago Bulls might be interested in Lopez in exchange for Nikola Mirotic, Jerian Grand and Bobby Portis.
With Brook Lopez going to the Bulls, he would also be reunited with his twin brother Robin Lopez. Another notable big man Taj Gibson is also with the Bulls so they would definitely be an unstoppable force having three talented big men in their team.
The new NBA season is a must watch for everyone with these NBA rumors spreading around the league. It would definitely make the game a lot more interesting for fans.
