Rumors, rumors, rumors...what are we going to hear next? They could be so entertaining to hear, but so erroneous at the exact same time.

Today's plethora of rumors include one about Hasheem Thabeet and the Oklahoma City Thunder. According to DraftExpress.com it looks as if Thabeet is not very interested in joining the Memphis Grizzlies organization to begin his career.

While most athletes would rather go to an established team that has experienced players on their roster instead of a lousy young team like the Grizzlies, Thabeet has expressed major interest in becoming a Thunder and from what is heard, it would be a 100 percent guarantee for Oklahoma to draft Thabeet if he is still available when their pick comes along.

With that in mind, could you imagine how young and tremendous the Thunders lineup could be? Westbrook, Durant, Green, and Thabeet? That sounds like an emerging team in the West!

In other news, the Chicago Bulls are attempting to trade up their 16th and 26th pick of the first round to the New Jersey Nets for the 11th pick overall.

Who could the Bulls possibly want with the 11th pick? Possibly Tyler Hansbrough or maybe Gerald Henderson.

Stay tuned...
