Lonzo Ball Trade Rumors Are Heating UP!

The NBA trade rumor mills were set off today and it's all because of Brandon 'Scoop B' Robinson, as one of the up-and-coming insiders of the NBA has made it known, teams are trying to trade for New Orleans Pelicans point-guard, Lonzo Ball.

Scoop B lists the Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers as teams who are interested in Ball's services.

The 23-year-old Ball is in his fourth year in the Association and in 10 starts this season he's averaging 11.9 points, 4.4 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game. 

Ball is still no where close to reaching his ceiling and is currently a part of one of the best young cores in the league. Time will tell if the Pels are looking to bring in some veteran presence, but any deal to this point doesn't seem close to completion.
