The trade market for Robert Covington is starting to heat up with the Rockets, Mavs and Sixers as known suitors, per Shams Charania.
Despite some knee concerns lingering in the background, Covington is an occasionally elite wing defender and a fantastic floor-spacer who can lift a team without dominating touches. It's no surprise that contending teams are interested, and fantasy GMs should feel relatively safe that RoCo's value will hold steady wherever he may end up. It's also not a pure salary dump situation, as the Wolves like what Covington does and aren't so much looking to trade him as they are exploring offers, which are sure to improve as the deadline approaches.
