The NBA offseason has been a little quiet over the last 24 hours. This is probably to be expected, considering we've already seen LeBron James go to the Lakers and DeMarcus Cousins head to Golden State.

Still, more big moves have to be coming, right? This is the NBA offseason, after all.

It looks like a trade for a starting NBA point guard could be coming.

Fletcher Mackel, a sports reporter in New Orleans, is reporting that the Pelicans and the Hawks have been discussing a trade centered on Dennis Schroder.

The 24-year-old point guard is definitely available, as the Hawks are going through a rebuild and just drafted Trae Young. The Pelicans could use an upgrade at the position after losing Rajon Rondo in free agency.

However, there are concerns.

"I’m told NOLA likes his talent, potential fit on court... but has MAJOR concerns about his pending legal issues (felony assault)," Mackel reports.

Pelicans star Anthony Davis was reportedly unhappy with the team's decision to let Rondo walk in free agency. An addition of Schroder would certainly help on the court.

Stay tuned.
