The latest rumors from the NBA are suggesting that something big might happen in the next few days. Two big names emerged as favorites for changing their environment, and that could cause a lot of other moves in the future.
According to various sources, some of them highly-respected NBA insiders, Jimmy Butler, and Kemba Walker are on the radars of two championship contenders.
Jimmy Butler is a wish of Houston Rockets, who want to add the third superstar to their team. In order to successfully challenging the Golden State Warriors, Lakers and other franchises in the West, Mike D’Antoni needs one more All-Star. It would be a guy who can take over the wheel in certain moments, and take of the pressure from Chris Paul and James Harden.
Butler is also one of the best two-way players in the league, and he will bring tough defense among the Rockets, which is something they lacked in the previous years. If by any chance he agrees to land in Texas, he would get a $140 million deal for the next four years.
On the other side of the country, the Boston Celtics are sure that Kyrie Irving isn’t going to be back. In response to that information, Danny Ainge and his management reacted quickly. Some of the experts are saying that Kemba Walker emerged as their No.1 target for Uncle Drew’s replacement.
Hornet’s point guard on one side wants to be the leader of a team, which he is in Charlotte, but on the other, he craves to chance the NBA title, which might be possible in Boston.
It will be very interesting to see what happens in the next few days in the NBA.
