The trade deadline is less than 48 hours away, but Hoops Rumors has been preparing for months. Part of that effort has entailed in-depth looks at several players who’ve emerged as likely trade candidates. One of them, Jeff Green, already wound up in a deal. The rest of them aren’t players who necessarily will be traded by the deadline, but each of them has been the subject of trade rumors, and if their teams aren’t shopping them, they’ve at least been open to the idea of sending them out.
Our Trade Candidate pieces explore why a trade might happen, the likelihood of a deal going down, and potential suitors, along with other relevant details. Last season, we profiled guys who were moved by the deadline, such as Danny Granger, Evan Turner and Andre Miller, along with others who were eventually dealt over the summer, including Arron Afflalo, Thaddeus Young, and Omer Asik.
These pieces lend perspective to the stream of rumors and reports flying around this week, and they give you a fuller scope of the market as Thursday’s 2pm Central time deadline draws ever closer. A complete list of the players we’ve examined is below, in alphabetical order, with a link to each profile on the names.
