NBA trade rumors: John Wall trying to recruit Paul George to Wizards
The NBA draft is over, and the rumor mill continues to buzz as usual—with the futures of several stars still in question.
Paul George, Kristaps Porzingis and other big names could be on the move, though the passing of the draft likely makes it more difficult to trade.
Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Gordon Hayward and Paul Millsap are among a number of quality free agents. Don’t rule anything out.
Free agency begins on Saturday, and teams are busy making final moves before the new collective bargaining agreement goes into effect.
