Hardwood Knocks: An NBA Podcast

Hardwood Knocks is a totally, completely, wholly lit basketball podcast in which Bleacher Report's Adam Fromal and Dan Favale analyze the ins, outs, ups, downs and heck, even diagonals of the NBA.



44 - The Hardwood Knocks Crew Analyzes 2016 NBA Trade Rumors

NBA trade season is upon us! Big names like Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Al Horford and more are churning through the rumor mill. Andy and Dan get together to discuss which rumors make sense. Is there any logic behind the Howard-for-Hassan Whiteside talk? Does Howard still move the needle for a good team? Who could he take from solid team to contender (if anyone)? Is the deal the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly already offered to the Denver Nuggets as crazy as it sounds? What if you just tweak it a little? Griffin in Denver would be fun and the Nuggets could offer a package that would make the Clippers better in the long run. OR, how about a straight-up swap with the New York Knicks for Melo? Then, there's talk of the Atlanta Hawks possibly blowing things up. Which destinations make sense for Al Horford and Jeff Teague? All that, plus, we discuss Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris of the Orlando Magic, Greg Monroe of the Milwaukee Bucks and Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves. If you want to get in touch with us and talk trades on Twitter, you can find Andy (@AndrewDBailey), Dan (@danfavale) and Adam (@fromal09) there. You can also hit up the show handle, @HardwoodKnocks.
