The 2017 NBA draft season is off—and the rumor mill is spinning out of control.

The draft began with a bang as the Bulls and Timberwolves agreed to a blockbuster trade, shipping Jimmy Butler to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick (Lauri Markkanen). 

Before the draft, there was plenty of action as well. The Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets got things started by exchanging D'Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov for Brook Lopez and the No. 27 pick in the draft. In addition, the Atlanta Hawks shipped Dwight Howard to the Charlotte Hornets after one season in exchange for a combination of picks and salary fillers.

While three big names have already traded teams, there are even bigger stars being discussed on the rumor mill. Paul George, Kristaps Porzingis, Gordon Hayward and LaMarcus Aldridge are among the names floating around in trade talks.
