Although the Wizards and the Knicks are the two teams that have most frequently discussed a possible Malcolm Brogdon trade with the Pacers, people around the league are skeptical that either team would include its 2022 lottery pick in a package for Brogdon, says Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.
If those league officials are right, that means a Brogdon trade could end up looking more like Portland’s deal for Jerami Grant. The Trail Blazers are giving up future picks (and a swap of 2022 second-rounders) for Grant, but aren’t including this year’s No. 7 overall pick. The Wizards and Knicks pick 10th and 11th, respectively, and will likely attempt to keep those picks as they pursue Brogdon.
According to Fischer, the Wizards have been open to discussing Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in trade conversations, while the Knicks have explored trade options involving Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel, Evan Fournier, Kemba Walker, and Cam Reddish.
Here are a few more rumors related to the point guard market:
- With the Wizards widely believed to be seeking a trade for a veteran point guard, one potential target worth keeping an eye on is Nuggets guard Monte Morris, according to Josh Robbins and David Aldridge of The Athletic (Twitter link).
- Responding to rumors about Dejounte Murray‘s possible availability, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com tweets that the Cavaliers have had conversation with the Spurs about Murray dating back to the trade deadline in February.
- Besides Brogdon, Morris, and Murray, some other point guards believed to be available via trade this offseason include Mike Conley of the Jazz, Terry Rozier of the Hornets, Devonte’ Graham of the Pelicans, and D’Angelo Russell of the Timberwolves, according to Fischer.

Indiana looks like they’re gonna the route of trying to suck harder than yo mama for that boy Wembanyama. Smart move imo. Deal Brogdon to whatever team is willing to give up a 2023 1st with the least protections on it. Look to deal Warren in a s&t. I’d prob wait til the trade deadline to deal Myles tho
Easy miss but Graham’s now a Pelican, right?
Gonna blame that on it being his old team AND listing him right after Rozier. It’s fixed, thanks!
At least those Wizards players referenced are serviceable with upside but how are the Knicks going to put a trade offer together with the players referenced without their lottery pick?
They have multiple future 1sts they can include, plus numerous talented young players
What would the Cavs give up for Murray? Would we give them Collin and a draft pick? It’s just talk but it’s still interesting none the less.
The Hawks are the one who need Murray. Should be a fun draft night
Wolves aren’t trading DLO
