Talk about rampant speculation. That kind of blurb perfectly illustrates how rumours get started. Take a look around the league, find Square Peg A and Square Hole B, then state that the two fit together in a way that makes it seem as though the two sides are actually talking. It's really no better than the stuff we do on the message boards, so it's kind of funny that people point to such articles as legitimate sources. (And it's even funnier that people get paid to write that garbage.)
