The NBA trade UKTN is only two weeks away and we’re here to update you on the latest news.

Let’s get right into it.

BOJAN BOGDANOVIC

The Detroit Pistons are in the midst of a rebuild and are considering trade player Bojan Bogdanovic due to his $39 million remaining two-year contract. However, they reportedly appreciate his performance and leadership on the field and are not actively trying to trade him.

The Pistons’ asking price for Bogdanovic is reportedly at least an unprotected first-round pick. The Lakers have reportedly discussed a trade for Bogdanovic and Nerlens Noel, but it’s unclear if they will go ahead as they want to keep their top draft capital.

FRED VANVLEET

Despite still having some key pieces from the 2019 championship team, the current Raptors squad just isn’t getting it done. Toronto languishes at 11th in the East and could even be on its way to a rebuild.

If they choose to go in that direction, it will be hard for them to beat Fred VanVleet and Gary Trent Jr. combined to pay nearly $40 million per season.

There’s been a lot of talk about the Raptors looking to move either of these, while OG Anunoby has also been in trade talks (though his asking price is high).

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Suns and Magic are both potential suitors for VanVleet.

ERIK GORDON

Ever since Eric Gordon said outright that he had not seen any improvement with the Rockets, it was clear that he had to be moved. In fact, his body language sent that same message long before he articulated his content in Houston.

Gordon is a 34-year-old who wants to play for a contender and fuel the Rockets at all costs for Victor Wembanyama. The question is, where does Gordon go?

He owes $19.6 million this season and $20.9 million next season despite scoring 12.3 points per game on 43 percent shooting from the field, so he could be a hard sell.

Nevertheless, Marc Stein has reported that the Milwaukee Bucks could be a potential candidate to acquire Gordon.

According to Shams Charania, the Rockets have set Gordons price on a first-round choice or a good young player.

CAM REDDISH

Recent reports suggest that the Heat, Mavs and Bucks are interested in acquiring Cam Reddish before the UKTN. The Knicks have been trying to find a new team for Reddish and are only seeking second-round compensation for him.

While Reddish is a talented player, the fact that he has been traded by two different teams suggests that teams may want to approach him with caution, or at least temper expectations.
