NBA trade rumors are flying ahead of Thursday’s draft. Two of the top three picks in the 2017 NBA Draft have already changed hands; the Sixers get the No. 1 overall pick from the Celtics, who get Philly’s pick at No. 3. Also, the Lakers are reportedly clearing cap space in a trade with the Nets in order to make a run at Paul George, and maybe LeBron James next summer.

The Clippers have been in contact with several teams, including the Suns, while exploring the market for center DeAndre Jordan, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
Phoenix reportedly shot down discussions with L.A. regarding a potential trade of Tyson Chandler and the Suns’ No. 4 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft in exchange for Jordan.
A husband and father of three, LeBron Jr. (12), Bryce (9) and Zhuri (2), James said not being able to be with them during a time like this is killing him.
They have great minds, they’re very open to life and love life and things of that nature, James said. So for me to be able just to try to give them the blueprint as much as I can on what life has to offer, but at the end of the day they’re going to have to walk their own path, and hopefully I give them enough life skills throughout their journey where when they’re ready to fly, they can fly on their own.
James said he’ll eventually get back to being engaging and energetic, as he typically is, during interviews but for now he’ll find solace in the hope that what he and his family endured won’t be in vain.
Time heals all, he said. And at the end of the day, like I said, if this incident that happened to me and my family today can keep the conversation going and can shed light on us trying to figure out a way to keep progressing and not regressing, then I’m not against it happening to us again. I mean it’s as long as my family is safe.
