Whatttttt?? Nurkic is very good. I think it must include more than just Zubac and 2 draft picks. Maybe Hart or Kuzma or something big??
Also, according to nba trade machine, players who signed a contract recently (Nurkic) cannot be traded until December 15 or 3 months later, whichever is later. For Nurkic, 3 months later is January 15, 2019 because he just signed a contract with Portland. So this rumor is just as it says - a rumor.
