NBA Trade Rumors: Victor Oladipo's sister defends her brother and claims that his teammates might have lied
An article in Bleacher Report recently claimed that Victor Oladipo apparently asked other teams "Can I come to play with ya'll?" in front of his Indiana Pacers teammates.
While that does sound unethical and arouses suspicion, his sister, Victoria Oladipo, quickly jumped to her brother's defense, claiming that Victor Oladipo's teammates might have lied about the incident.
Twitter nation joined in on the development and started speculating about who that mysterious teammate could be, with many assuming that it may be Myles Turner.
Regardless of the unfortunate development, Victor Oladipo is apparently unhappy with his situation in the Indiana Pacers and wants to be traded away. In this regard, NBA trade rumors have linked Victor Oldadipo with a plethora of teams in the competition.
Due to his recent injuries, Victor Oladipo only played 55 games in the past two seasons, and analysts are unsure about his return to an All-Star caliber player. However, Victor Oladipo, who is still regarded as one of the best guards in the league, could turn up for another franchise next season.
NBA Trade Rumors: Boston Celtics are reportedly in pursuit of Jrue Holiday
After the New Orleans Pelicans made Jrue Holiday available for trade talks, many teams have expressed interest in the services of the guard.
Jrue Holiday has evolved into a decent scorer, who averages around 20 points per game while scoring 45% or better from the floor; he is also a fabulous defensive guard.
It's no surprise then that several NBA trade rumors have linked Jrue Holiday with a bevy of teams.
Among the several teams pursuing Jrue Holiday, the latest to join the bandwagon is the Boston Celtics, according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor.
The Boston Celtics have an abundance of assets that they can trade to acquire the 29-year-old guard from the New Orleans Pelicans.
With the Boston Celtics playing a style of basketball many regard as 'positionless'; Jrue Holiday could fit into their roster seamlessly.
The Boston Celtics' small-ball lineup along with the constant switch between guards could be complemented by adding a defensive player like Jrue Holiday, whose 20 points-per-game contribution could elevate the Boston Celtics to title contenders next season.
