NBA Rumors: Mavericks Could Get Victor Oladipo For Tim Hardaway Jr., Josh Green & 2025 First-Rounder

NBA Rumors: Mavericks Could Get Victor Oladipo For Tim Hardaway Jr., Josh Green & 2025 First-Rounder

The Houston Rockets may have only recently acquired Victor Oladipo in the four-way blockbuster deal that sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets, but a recent list of trade ideas hinted that the Dallas Mavericks could hypothetically make a move for him prior to the March 25 deadline. As explained by Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley on Wednesday, Luka Doncic is posting MVP-caliber numbers for the Mavericks and is averaging close to a triple-double with 27.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 9.9 assists per game. However, Dallas is in the bottom half of the Western Conference, with their 8-9 record...

Rockets star Victor Oladipo bids goodbye to injured knee with funeral

Just before the NBA preseason finale last December, Houston Rockets guard Victor Oladipo went to a funeral. The funeral, however, was not for a person but for his injured knee. This event was meant to symbolize a farewell to his injury mindset–something that had taken a heavy toll on Oladipo. “… burying my injury and […] The post Rockets star Victor Oladipo bids goodbye to injured knee with funeral appeared first on ClutchPoints.

NBA Trade Rumors: Pelicans Could Acquire Victor Oladipo For Lonzo Ball, JJ Redick, And First-Round Pick

Houston Rockets shooting guard Victor Oladipo is expected to be one of the hottest names on the market before the 2021 trade deadline. The Rockets are yet to make him officially available on the trading block again but since his arrival in Space City, rumors have been swirling that he’s not interested in staying with the team. Instead of taking the risk of losing him in the 2021 free agency without getting anything in return, it might be best for the Rockets to flip his expiring contract into assets that could help them speed up the rebuilding process.Click here to continue and read more...

NBA Rumors: Victor Oladipo Trade ‘Makes A Ton Of Sense’ For Miami Heat, Per ‘Bleacher Report’

NBA Rumors: Victor Oladipo Trade ‘Makes A Ton Of Sense’ For Miami Heat, Per ‘Bleacher Report’

The Miami Heat are one of the teams that are expected to be an aggressive shopper before the 2021 trade deadline. They may have successfully brought back most of the players who helped them reach the NBA Finals last year but as their rivals in the Eastern Conference grow stronger, they should highly prioritize surrounding Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo with additional star power in order to have a better chance of winning the 2021 NBA championship title. One of the most realistic trade targets for Miami is veteran shooting guard Victor Oladipo of the Houston Rockets. Trading for Oladipo comes...

Christian Wood is a building block for the future with Rockets

Photos by Logan Riely/NBAE via Have the Rockets discovered the league’s next big star? Times have certainly changed in Houston. In what has been an emotional departure, James Harden has dumped H-Town to team up with Kevin Durant in Brooklyn. It hurts losing such a key component of the franchise, but the band aid has been ripped off and now it’s time to heal the wounds. What remains is a core of new faces. That being said, who is next in line on the Rockets hierarchy? Is it John Wall or Victor Oladipo, both 2017 All-Star guards coming off injuries? Or perhaps...

Though they currently hold the best record in the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Lakers are still expected to be active on the market before the 2021 trade deadline. They may currently have two of the best players in the league but as some of their rivals continue to grow stronger, they may be forced to find a third star that would help LeBron James and Anthony Davis defend their throne in the 2020-21 NBA season.

Stephen Silas was two picks away from drafting Victor Oladipo during the 2013 NBA Draft. He was part of the then-Charlotte Bobcats draft process as an assistant coach for the team. With the Bobcats holding the fourth pick, Silas studied some of the top draft prospects coming out of college. One of which was Oladipo, who just took home the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honors at Indiana University Bloomington. But as he...
