NBA trade rumors: Eric Bledsoe could go to Philadelphia 76ers

More NBA trade rumors involving the Philadelphia 76ers are surfacing with each passing day. Several NBA franchise have shown interest in recruiting Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor.

The Phoenix Suns have two starting guards and Eric Bledsoe is seen as the main man for them in future. It means Brandon Knight is likely to be traded. But the Suns need to tick several boxes and Bledsoe is going to give them the bigger return.

For the 76ers, rumors are strong that they are looking to trade their centers for guards but senior adviser Jerry Colangelo may look at different possibilities.

"One thing that is certain, this is not a team that is set and looking to fill a need," Colangelo said. "This is much more than that. On one hand, it's an easier fix, by that I mean there's so much to do that you can just kind of, it's not a matter of picking a spot, there are a lot of spots to address."

Dan Favale of Bleacher Report proposed that the time has come for the Sixers to trade their assets not necessarily to address any position but to acquire a "franchise cornerstone."
