The one thing that makes the NBA trade deadline so intriguing is that every year, we see a couple big name players get traded to playoff contending teams and they wind up changing the course of the entire season. One move could make or break any of the 30 teams in the NBA, which is why this year’s trade deadline will surely bring some fireworks.
Some of the superstar players mentioned in NBA trade rumors as being “on the block” may not be available anymore, but some new names and faces could pop up last minute and be packing their bags. Nobody is safe when the trade deadline comes around and if there is one thing we know, it is that plenty of teams will be looking to add more talent.
With the Brooklyn Nets adding James Harden back in January and the Utah Jazz continuing to display their dominance in the Western Conference, we could see numerous big name players on the move since teams will be trying to catch up to these two teams.
Not to mention, there are plenty of teams that made the playoffs last year that will be fighting for a playoff spot this season. The second-half of this year’s season will surely bring a lot of fireworks and with pretty much every team in the league still having a shot to make the playoffs, expect to see plenty of high-level basketball being played.
Now, let’s take a look at three league-changing deals that NBA fans would love to see at this year’s NBA trade deadline.
