The NBA trade deadline is six hours away, and the expectation at this point around the league from those in the know seems to be that we won’t have too much in the way of earth-shattering trade news coming.
That doesn’t mean deals won’t get done, but we probably won’t see a blockbuster on the level of the Blake Griffin trade from a couple weeks ago. The Clippers are the best bet to facilitate another big time trade, as they continue to look for deals for center DeAndre Jordan, although talks have yet to get really serious.
The Cavaliers apparently continue to push hard to try and land Jordan, although not hard enough (to this point) to give up the Brooklyn pick, but according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Cleveland is exploring other ways to sweeten the pot. Woj reported on Thursday morning that talks were ongoing and the Cavs had even discussed some possible three team options with L.A.
