The NBA offseason has been rather quiet since NBA free agency has died down, but there are still plenty of NBA rumors & news coming to light around the league. The hottest topic in NBA news has to be that DeMarcus Cousins tore his ACL earlier this week & he will most likely miss the 2019-20 NBA season. As a result, the Los Angeles Lakers have gotten permission from the Memphis Grizzlies to speak with Dwight Howard, who previously played for LA back in 2012. Could the Lakers sign Howard to shore up their center position or could they look at players such as Kenneth Faried, Joakim Noah or Andrew Bogut?
Carmelo Anthony has reportedly worked out for the Brooklyn Nets this offseason in LA, where Kyrie Irving has organized team practices for a handful of Nets players. Melo has yet to sign with an NBA team & it is unknown whether Melo will play in the NBA in 2019. Would the Nets be a good fit for Carmelo Anthony? Plus, there have been NBA trade rumors surrounding Danilo Gallinari of the OKC Thunder. Gallinari has yet to play a game for the Thunder after being shipped from the Clippers in the Paul George trade and there have been speculations that Gallinari could be traded this offseason. Potential suitors are the 76ers, Celtics & Knicks.
