NBA Trade Rumours Roundup, January 28th: Lakers star set to leave, Warriors interested in Knicks star and more
- Here are the latest trade rumors from around the NBA
We have now passed the halfway point of the 2018/19 NBA season, and teams are starting to get a good idea about where they currently stand. Up until this point, both Conferences have remained competitive, with eleven teams in playoff contention in the Eastern Conference, while every team except the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies still have a shot in the West.
The February trade deadline is also quickly approaching, as the NBA has made changes to the deadline so that it will now always occur 10 days before the All-Star game. This has been done so that players, who are traded, have time to settle into their new teams, so this year's trade window will close on February 7th.
So with the trade deadline just two weeks away, here are the biggest trade rumors you need to know for January 28th.
Trey Burke is attracting interest from the Warriors
After suffering another disappointing season, the New York Knicks are currently focused on developing their young talent. Due to this, a number of senior players are likely to move on before the trade deadline, and the NY Post is reporting that Trey Burke is currently attracting interest:
In search of second-round picks, the Knicks will explore trading Burke at the Feb. 7 deadline, and he said he’s fine whether he stays or goes. This latest showcase for Burke, a free agent, is bound to turn NBA heads.
The Lakers are without injured point guard Lonzo Ball, the Warriors are thin at backup point guard with Quinn Cook and the Nets just lost Spencer Dinwiddie for weeks to thumb surgery.
Burke has been with the Knicks for just over a year and has averaged 11.6 points and 2.9 assists per game this season.
