Trade Rumors: Hernangomez, Bucks, Hawks, Raps

Word broke on Monday that Willy Hernangomez‘s representatives have asked the Knicks to trade the young center, though as Marc Berman and Zach Braziller of The New York Post note, that trade request was hardly shocking news. Hernangomez had publicly said several times already this season that he’d welcome a move to another team if that’s what it took for him to receive more playing time.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, more than a dozen teams have expressed some level of interest in Hernangomez, and several of those clubs have put specific offers on the table for the Knicks. Still, New York’s front office won’t give Hernangomez away — the team is seeking a significant return for the 23-year-old, per Begley.

One source who has spoken to Knicks higher-ups expects the team to hang onto Hernangomez through the deadline unless a deal returns better long-term assets than the young big man, according to Berman and Braziller. Meanwhile, Begley notes that the Knicks are confident they’ll be able to reintegrate Hernangomez if they don’t trade him by Thursday.

As we wait to see what Hernangomez’s future holds, here are more trade-related notes and rumors from around the NBA:

  • Even after acquiring Tyler Zeller, the Bucks remain interested in Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, tweets Gery Woelfel of The Racine Journal Times. However, according to Woelfel, Milwaukee is unwilling to give up a key piece like Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton, or Jabari Parker in exchange for Jordan.
  • While the Hawks are ready to deal, GM Travis Schlenk tells Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he doesn’t feel pressure to make moves, since the club has already stockpiled a number of extra draft picks. “We are willing to use our (cap) flexibility if we can get assets we want,” Schlenk said. “But I feel like we’ve done enough early on (that) we have the flexibility to sit back and not take too much (salary) on because we have so many picks. We don’t feel pressure to do anything because of that, but if there is an opportunity that makes sense for us we are certainly going to take a hard look at it.”
  • Michael Grange of Rogers Sportsnet (Twitter link) is hearing “more and more” that the Raptors will be minor players at the trade deadline, if they’re active at all. Toronto has no interest in Tyreke Evans and views RFA-to-be Rodney Hood as too pricey, says Grange.
  • Daryl Morey and the Rockets view the buyout period as just as likely to result in a roster addition as the trade market, per Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle. The Rockets still may complete a deal this week, with an emergency backup guard atop their wish list, but they want to hang onto their 2020 first-round pick, says Feigen. Houston’s 2019 first-round pick can’t be moved, since the team has already traded its 2018 first-rounder.

    The clippers might be desperate to move him now. Why would he re up with them when they just traded their cornerstone away. He can’t be happy and will walk at the end of the year for sure. They know this and so does the league. Might as well take the best offer now and I’m hoping it’s the bucks.

      If they could do so without taking back long term salary it makes sense, but for at most a late first and a 2nd, or maybe an interesting prospect, I think the cap space is more valuable.

      I feel like the bucks are a lot like me in fantasy sports just keep pitching lowball offers and hope the other team accidentally hits accepts them real quick call no trade backs !

      I think Jordan will exercise his player option. I don’t see him getting $24 million a year anywhere else. I still think he should have gone to Dallas.

    How is Jabari Parker a “key piece?” He has played a grand total of 32 minutes this season. He is a talented player, but definitely not a key piece for a Bucks team that has played well in his absence.

      Jabari could be a huge part of the future just needs to stay healthy honestly, it’ll be awesome to see how he responds to playing under someone other than J Kidd since the whole team looks to be much better from it

      The bucks haven’t played great(they fired their coach) and Parker can be good in the future

    I came into this article expecting a part of it to be about actual raps. Disappointed it’s just about the Raptors.
