Ford Chat:

ESPN NBA insider Chad Ford hosted his weekly chat last Tuesday. Here are some rumors he brought up:

  • Tyreke Evans is likely the Kings' shooting guard of the future, meaning it's more than probable that a Kevin Martin trade is on the horizon. Evans has mostly played point guard in his rookie season.
  • The Knicks are giving Eddy Curry playing time right now because Donnie Walsh wants to see if he can revert to his old skills enough that he is worth an expiring contract. Curry has a player option worth $11.2 million next year that he is guaranteed to accept.
  • Andres Nocioni of the Kings has caught the Celtics interest. They may try to get a deal done if they can center it around Tony Allen.
  • Ford recommends that the Wizards try to trade Gilbert Arenas.
  • Danny Granger needs to step up as the leader of the Pacers. Indiana also might want to unload Troy Murphy, who is tired of sharing minutes with Tyler Hansbrough.
  • The top three general managers are the Spurs' RC Buford, the Pistons' Joe Dumars and Kevin O'Connor of the Jazz, according to Ford.
  • Kevin Durant has likely found a home with the Thunder, but don't count on Chris Paul staying with New Orleans.
  • The 76er's should trade Elton Brand. Any takers?
