NBA 2019-20 season has started and some players and teams are already in talks for new trade deals. Based on the individual performance, team coordination and player injuries, it won’t be surprising if we see some of the top players getting traded soon.
Even though it is too early for any team to get in or out of the playoffs race, none of them want to be late for making a deal. Here are the most possible rumored trade deals for D’Angelo Russell, Draymond Green and Chris Paul.
D’Angelo Russel stint with the Golden State Warriors has proven to be a disaster so far and he posted the worst rating (-74) of his career so far. The Warriors are looking at Russel like liability and he might get traded out from the team sooner than expected.
No D’Angelo Russell in Houston. Same lineup as last two games for Warriors. Russell could return at Minnesota on Friday.

Miami Heat has always been interested in D-Lo and could offer a package of Justise Winslow, James Johnson, and a 2024 first-round pick to the Warrior in exchange. NBA teams such as Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets, Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks, and Toronto Raptors also have assets to match with D’Angelo Russell and Warriors could soon make the deal.
Draymond Green might be a fixed player in the Golden State Warriors but with the recent injuries, anything could happen. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are already out due to injuries and now Green is also supposed to miss a few games.

The Warriors might be looking towards a full-scale rebuild and trading out Draymond Green won’t come off as a surprise. Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic, Maimi Heat, and Atlanta Hawks are the rumored NBA teams to make a deal for signing Green with the Warriors.
Chris Paul might have started playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but he won’t stay in there for long. The only reason OKC are still with Paul is that they are waiting for a bigger offer given the heavy contract the player carries with him.

Dallas Mavericks might be doing great at the start of the NBA season but they would need a veteran presence like Chris Paul to survive in the West. Luka Doncic – Kristaps Porzingis duo is great but not fit enough to carry the team, absorbing the expensive contract of Paul might be a bit difficult, but the Mavericks would surely find a way to make the deal happen.
