According to Pro Basketball News, there is another major trade on the immediate horizon. Multiple League sources have confirmed that a Gerald Wallace trade is “imminent,” though a destination is not specified.
Pro Basketball News speculates that Wallace might not be the only Bobcat on the move.
“There are rumors that Charlotte has also been said to have grown displeased with the inconsistent play of Raymond Felton and is also ready to pull the plug on Adam Morrison, so a massive shakeup could be in the works.”
What are some possible destinations for Wallace?
* Golden State – Though the Warriors need another small forward like they need another moped accident, Charlotte could put a potentially attractive package together – IF, and that’s a big if, Don Nelson thinks that Raymond Felton can be a long-term fix at point guard.
*Portland – We proposed Wallace for Martell Webster, Channing Frye, and a pick when this rumor initially surfaced a little while ago. On second thought, I don’t know that’s enough for MJ to bite. With Nicolas Batum looking like a potentially dangerous offensive weapon, does it sweeten the deal enough to throw him in there?
* Phoenix – The Suns are off to a strong start, but would they be willing to part with Leandro Barbosa to get Wallace?
* Miami – That Marion-for-Wallace trade makes sense if Charlotte could somehow convince Matrix to sign an extension with the team before pulling the trigger.
* New York – The Knicks basically have to be mentioned in every trade conversation. They might not be serious contenders to get Wallace, but they’ll probably dangle the standard offer of Curry/Marbury and see what MJ says for a good laugh.
