The Feb. 7 trade deadline is inching closer as NBA teams continue to look for ways to improve their rosters for the impending postseason run. It’s also the time for those franchises with little to no hope at a playoff berth to part ways with talent as they unload salaries and focus on the future.
There has already been a flurry of trades that have gotten the ball rolling as the month of February begins, none bigger than the New York Knicks sending Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks in. Then we saw the 76ers make a huge move to add Tobias Harris from the Clippers, creating one of the most fearsome starting lineups in the NBA. And the previously untradeable Otto Porter Jr. was sent to Chicago.
New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis may be the next big star to switch teams, with the Los Angeles Lakers being intensely involved in those trade discussions. However, will the New Orleans Pelicans move their star before the deadline or decide to wait until later to make their move? We’ll find out soon enough.
Below is every trade that has happened so far this season. We will continue to update with all the latest trades that transpire.
