The now-prized possession Carmelo Anthony continues to create a multitude of swirling winds in the NBA's central with continuous rumors.
According to ESPN's NBA analyst Chris Broussard, the Philadelphia 76ers wingman Andre Iguodala has asked the Sixers management for a trade.
Per reports, the Sixers are interested in the ever-lingering Luol Deng, who has been spotty at best throughout his career.
Deng, a former seventh overall pick in 2004, has spent six years in Chicago with stints of brilliance that has been overridden with injury. This year was intended to be a breakout year for the 25-year-old small forward, as the Sudan native fulfills a third-option spot.
Iguodala, on the other hand, has only sat out four games throughout his six years of service.
However, another blockbuster scenario is more likely.
While trading Deng for Iguodala is an easier solution for both team's problems, Carmelo Anthony may have his own resolved with some fine tuning.
Anthony has expressed his discomfort regarding a trade to Philly, but has spoken highly about Tom Thibodeau's squad.
This three-way trade may be under construction as this article is composed:
Chicago Bulls Receive:
SF Carmelo Anthony
Philadelphia 76ers Receive:
SF Luol Deng
Denver Nuggets Receive:
SG Andre Iguodala
PF Taj Gibson
SF James Johnson
With the addition of a few first-round picks on anyone's side, this trade may be successful in due time. Even though multiple trades have been discussed, this is one that includes the young talent that is expected in return for the thriving Carmelo Anthony.
If anything at all, it is nice to look at this.
