Ryan Dempster Trade Rumors: Cubs RHP Prefers To Go To Dodgers Or Braves, According To Report

FOX Sports is reporting that Cubs RHP Ryan Dempster's top two choices are the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves, in that order. But Dempster, who has the right to veto any trade, appears willing to consider a lot of different options.

However, he will not necessarily play hardball.

Dempster's primary wish is to go to a contender, and he likely would consider any of the teams interested in him, including the Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals.

Dempster, according to one source, has told the Cubs that he is open to many clubs and given them only a handful of teams that he would reject.
