By Ponciano Melo – Teams have picked up the pace in the trade market before before it hit the red light.
The struggling Orlando Magic have traded their best player and this year All-Star Nikola Vucevicto the Chicago Bulls.
Magic sent Vucevic and veteran Al FaroqueAminu in exchange for young players Wendell Carter Jr, Otto Porter and two first-round picks.
By the first look, Chicago won the trade as it now have two All-Star in one team, Vucevic and Zach LaVine. The arrival of the European big man will surely boost the campaign of Chicago to make the playoffs. On the other hand, Orlando is seemingly deciding to go on a rebuilding process.
Vucevic’s departure is a shocking move for the Magic which was initially focused on trading Aaron Gordon after making a request.
Meanwhile, another trade happened between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Denver Nuggets. The Cavs sent multiple NBA champ JavaleMcGree in exchange for Isiaih Hartenstein and 2 future second-round picks.
The energetic and athletic center will surely give energy to the Nuggets who are struggling in the season.
Still on the list of possible players being traded are Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors, Gordon, and Jason Collins of the Atlanta Hawks.
