The NBA trade rumors are continuing to fly ahead of the deadline later this month.
Let’s check out the latest ones:
-The Heat are prepared to waive either Roger Mason Jr. or Toney Douglas to open up a roster spot, according to Grantland. They had their eye on Andrew Bynum before the Pacers got him. If they’re unable to swing a trade, they’ll look for players such as Emeka Okafor and Caron Butler to buyout.

-The latest rumor involving the Knicks is that the team really wants Kenneth Faried from the Denver Nuggets, in exchange for Iman Shumpert and Beno Udrih. “But that’s the issue; New York simply hasn’t been able to get Denver to seriously consider the idea,” according to ESPN.
-The Wizards could make a deal with the Denver Nuggets that involves bringing Andre Miller to Washington, according to Grantland. However, the Wizards are just $1 million under the tax line, meaning they’d have to send out significant salary to offer Miller tenure.
-If the Wizards can’t get Miller as their new backup point guard, they have Knicks guard Udrih high on their list.

-The Suns are reported by Yahoo! to be prowling for front-court help following the cooling down of talks to try to get Pau Gasol from the Lakers. They have Carlos Boozer of the Bulls on their radar, as well as Greg Monroe and Josh Smith of the Pistons; Larry Sanders of the Bucks; and Omer Asik of the Bulls. Monroe and Asik in particular have been named in lots of rumors involving multiple teams.
