Eye on Basketball Podcast: Trade deadline and All-Star weekend
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the trade deadline rumors, the idea of the Rockets going after Rajon Rondo, and reminisce about All-Star weekend.
It's the trade deadline madness and Matt Moore joins me to discuss the scuttlebutt of the NBA trade deadline. One deal is already in the books with the Sacramento Kings trading Marcus Thornton to the Brooklyn Nets for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans . Is this a decent move for both teams? Should the Kings even entertain the thought of keeping Terry? And what is to the rumor of the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves discussing a deal that would Chase Budinger and J.J. Barea to Memphis for Tony Allen and Tayshaun Prince ?
There are also rumors going around that the Houston Rockets might be interested in adding Rajon Rondo in a trade from the Boston Celtics . Would Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin be too much or not enough for Boston? Do they need two first round picks and if thats the case, does Houston just laugh at them? Would Rondo's style and lack of outside shooting fit in with the shooters in Houston?
We discuss all of this, plus the dunk contest good and bad, moving the draft back, and taking breaks.
