Heat More Likely To Trade Chris Andersen Than Mario Chalmers

Aug 26, 2015 1:06 PM

The Miami Heat remain willing to trade away Chris Andersen to help alleviate their luxury tax bill.

Andersen is due approximately $5 million and the Heat haven't found much of a market for a trade.

The Heat, however, are expected to bring Mario Chalmers to training camp even though they haven't ruled out a trade.

'Vast Majority' Within Kings' Organization In Favor Of Trading DeMarcus Cousins

Aug 17, 2015 4:27 PM

DeMarcus Cousins was the subject of trade rumors before the draft, but tension remains between him and the Sacramento Kings' organization with the preseason nearly a month away.

"Sacramento wants to hold onto him. Vivek Ranadive absolutely wants to hold onto DeMarcus Cousins. But I've been told if you polled the rest of the organization, the vast majority are in favor of trading DeMarcus Cousins and that would include, though he denies it, George Karl," said Howard Beck.

Cousins won't become a free agent until 2018.

Vlade Divac has tried to make the situation between Cousins and Karl tenable.

Markieff Morris Requests Trade From Suns

Aug 12, 2015 1:26 AM

Markieff Morris said he is determined to be traded by the Phoenix Suns.

“One thing for sure, I am not going to be there,” Morris said Tuesday.

"If you want to put that out there, you can put that out. I don’t give a [freak]. I am not going to be there at all. That’s just what it is."

Morris signed a four-year, $32 million extension in 2014. The Suns traded Marcus Morris this offseason and could suspend Markieff if he refuses to play. 

“I’ve got to show up. No question.” said Markieff Morris, who is scheduled to make $8 million this season. “You can’t do that. I will be a professional. Don’t get me wrong. 

“But it won’t get that far. … I’m going to be out before then, should be."
