The February 23 trade deadline is fast approaching, and teams have already started making deals, with the Cavaliers landing Kyle Korver last weekend. In the weeks leading up to the deadline, Hoops Rumors will be taking an in-depth look at some players who may change teams on or before February 23. 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 15 players, including many who were dealt before the deadline, such as Markieff Morris, Chris Andersen, Brandon Jennings. We also looked at guys like Jeff Teague, who were eventually traded in the summer.
A list of the players we’ve examined so far during the 2016/17 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.
