The NBA trade deadline is just a few hours away and it could be one of the most active trade deadlines the NBA has seen in quite some time. There is expected to be a lot of talent relocating at the season’s midway point, and we could see the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors engage in a trade this year focused on Norman Powell.

The Knicks are a team who would currently be in the playoffs if the season ended today, but unfortunately for the squad they still have another half of a season to embark on. The Knicks have a solid core of RJ Barrett and Julius Randle, but they could be looking to add some depth at the NBA trade deadline.

One player who could spark the Knicks’ interest is none other than Toronto Raptors shooting guard Norman Powell. Powell, 27, has spent six years in the NBA and has established himself as an effective shooter who can play in a variety of roles.

There’s no doubt that adding Norman Powell to a team that already has a variety of solid talent would be a great move, but it will surely cost the team.

Let’s take a look at what a potential deal between these teams could look like.
