NBA Trade Rumors 2016/17: Wizards, Pistons, Sixers, Suns in Blockbuster Eight-Player Deal

NBA Trade Rumors

John Wall is one of the best point guards in the league, but he doesn't have the future in the Washington Wizards, because he wants to play for the contender, and they are not even amongst the best teams in the Eastern Conference.

This trade rumor has come up, but no confirmation at this time it is accurate.

Over recent days, rumors had spread across the web that John Wall, Reggie Jackson, Brandon Knight and Jahlil Okafor were bound to be traded as part of a four-team deal. The rumored trade would have taken place as follows:


  • Give: Reggie Jackson, Tobias Harris, Reggie Bullock, two first-round picks
  • Get: John Wall, Markieff Morris


  • Give: John Wall, Markieff Morris
  • Get: Brandon Knight, Jahlil Okafor, T.J. Warren, first-round pick


  • Give: Jahlil Okafor
  • Get: Reggie Jackson


  • Suns give: Brandon Knight, T.J. Warren
  • Suns get: Tobias Harris, Reggie Bullock, first-round pick

That is a very interesting blockbuster, but we don't know yet is this just a rumor or they are working on this deal.

John Wall is a better player than Reggie Jackson, and with him, the Pistons will have great duo Drummond - Wall. Of course, don't forget they will receive Markieff Morris, because of his brother Marcus Morris.

Philadelphia Sixers should trade Okafor or Noel, and it's best to trade one of them before the start of the season.

A few days ago, the Sixers reveal minutes restriction for Embiid. They don't expect to play back-to-back nights and they don't know if he'll start at center against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the season-opener until after consulting with the medical staff.

However, according to Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times, there is nothing suggesting that the trade will happen, but they always denied trades, and we are one month from the NBA 2016/17, and these rumors are always good to check.

Every season, they tried to deny trades and free agent destinations and just like that we have Derrick Rose with New York Knicks, Kevin Durant with Golden State Warriors and Dwyane Wade with Chicago Bulls.
