The NBA trade deadline is approaching fast which means that there will be deals starting to be discussed that could continue to take shape over the next 72 hours. One such deal could be a three-way trade between the Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks.
According to Ian Begley from ESPNNewYork.com, the deal would involve Kyle Lowry going to the Knicks, Jeff Teague going to the Raptors and Iman Shumpert heading to the Hawks, among other considerations changing hands. Begley reports that the talks are just in the preliminary stages and haven’t advanced yet.
League sources say a scenario in which Teague ends up in Toronto, Shumpert goes to Atlanta and Lowry winds up in New York has been discussed. Another scenario could have Teague ending up in New York. The conversations are believed to be preliminary and have not reached an advanced stage.
Of course, this doesn’t mean a trade will happen, but we’ve seen these types of deals move quickly in the NBA. With 72 hours to go until the deadline, this is the scenario to keep an eye on as it could end up being a blockbuster.
