little birdies say:
Chris Miles @mileswdsu
@FletcherMackel my little birdie inside the future "pelicans" organization says the teams trade wish list are OJ Mayo, Loul Deng, Kemba Walker and Brandon Jennings with Eric Gordon, Aminu, Jason Smith and yes Vasquez as trade bait

Deng would be an interesting move. Nabbing OJ Mayo might wind up sending Gordon's heart to Seattle.
Mayo is the real deal. But I don't see the Mavs letting him get away. Jennings I think is more of a possibility,
follow me @SportsPillowTlk . I blog and have a podcast about Gulf Coast Sports, Saint, Texans, Rockets, Hornets, LSU, Cougars, Longhorns, NBA, NFL, MLB, Astros
Woaw... so soon to trade Gordon?
But playing along, Deng is the only one that isn't common sense that we would be interested in. The rest would be very solid building pieces on our young team, but Deng sticks out. He's not too old to be a part of the team, but his large contract and age would make him a strange target.
Edit: But I would welcome him in a trade for Gordon.

i like kemba walker a lot, and i think he could be obtained easier than jennings
Very familiar names- most written about or talked about here, on H247, or in the podcast within the past two weeks. Curious.
Anyway, there was a Bulls blog that suggested Chicago look at Deng for Gordon and I just think that is the perfect deal for both teams. At some point you have to add a solid vet on this team that can lead this group on and off the court and I would kill for Deng.
Contract is similar to Gordon's and I wouldn't mind giving him another 3-4 years when he is 29 because his game isn't so dependent on athleticism. I can imagine most fans wouldn't want it because 27 is considered a dinosaur for a rebuilding team, but teams that win big in this league have experienced vets and if we keep building this team based on picks and potential (not to mention injury prone guys), we wont be contenders for 7 or 8 years.
Time to add a guy like Deng IMO. If Chicago was really open to that, I would do it in a heart beat
deng is one of the best sf's in the league but doesnt get recognition. hes 6"9, incredible defense, great jumpshot and awesome rebounder, think he's averaging like 19pts and 8 rebs. anyways i really hope we get kemba walker
I would be happy with anyone of those guys.
only thing is i see jennings, kemba and mayo... which one would go best with rivers
Iggy fits that bill quail. He's really not working out that well in Denver so maybe they won't be inclined to sign him as much
I cant see the Mavs moving Mayo or Bobcats trading Kemba Walker anytime soon. But I do see Deng and Jennings as a strong possibility.
People who wouldn't give up Gordon for Deng, I am very curious as to why. To me, it seems like an absolute no brainer but I am willing to be persuaded. Thanks
I wouldn't believe anything from WDSU those two are such a joke. The only news source I trust is WWL and Fox 8. But if this is true what about Gordon for Mayo and Dallas 1st round pick.
I would pull the trigger on Deng if possible. We would still have the same amount of money in the offseason to try to get Jennings but would be adding a productive SF (which we really need) & letting Rivers play his natural positon of SG. Think about that lineup
Rivers/(FA backup possibly)
I think thats a very good roster.....plus Deng gives you leadership and winning experience. Yeah he's older but he's still very productive and has great defense.
