The February 18th trade deadline is fast approaching. Plenty of movement should take place between now and then, and Hoops Rumors is taking an in-depth look at players who seem like decent bets to change teams. These aren’t players who necessarily will be traded by the deadline, but there’s a distinct possibility that their teams will at least listen to offers if not actively shop them in the coming weeks.
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 Goran Dragic, Reggie Jackson, Arron Afflalo, Michael Carter-Williams, Jeff Green, Thaddeus Young and Norris Cole, all of whom were traded before the deadline, along with Lance Stephenson and Nik Stauskas, who were eventually traded over the summer.
A complete list of the players we’ve examined so far during the 2015/16 season is below, in alphabetical order. This list can be found in our right sidebar under “Hoops Rumors Features” and will continue to be updated until the deadline.
