NBA trade rumors 2015: Eric Bledsoe may be going to Houston Rockets in latest trade
There are rumors doing the rounds that Eric Bledsoe may be going to the Rockets in three-way trade with Suns and Celtics. Though these rumors are yet to be confirmed from the team managers and other officials, there are strong evidences that these rumors may be true.
There is no denying the fact that many NBA teams are trying to improve their outlook by going for better teams while simultaneously offloading the players who, despite being very pricey have not been able to deliver or perform.
Despite being among the most recognized NBA franchisees, the Houston Rockets, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns are just like any other NBA teams as they have their own share of problems and keep on the lookout for better players.
These teams are not able to perform despite top of the line players. The fans of all the above mentioned teams are calling for changes in their rosters. At the start of the season, the Rockets were projected by many as a strong title contender this season but they have failed to live up to their reputation so far. The disastrous start to the new season forced the Rockets management to fire coach Kevin McHale.
There is no denying the fact that the Suns are also unhappy with their performance so far and the fans are pointing towards Tyson Chandler. Among other things, Chandler seems least interested in taking the next step. A three-way trade proposed in Real GM explores the Suns engaging in a three way trade with the Rockets and Boston Celtics. Originally, the trade was supposed to take place between Celtics (acquiring Dwight Howard) and the Rockets but there was a necessity for a third team because the Celtics failed to offer players to convince the Rockets to part with their big man.
The teams will be looking forward to improve their future outlook as well. Celtics get Dwight Howard and PJ Tucker: addressing their need for a franchise big man and a swingman. Houston Rockets get Eric Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler and Markieff Morris. They get their quality point guard, replaced their defensive Phoenix Suns get: David Lee, Ty Lawson, Jared Sullinger, James Young, 2016 first round picks of Dallas Mavericks (top 7 protected) and Boston Celtics own 2016 draft pick.
