NBA Trade Board 2024 Updates: Everything you need to know about each key player in the market | Top Vip News


Athletic broadcasts live 2024 NBA Trade Deadline. Follow updates.

It’s finally here: NBA Trade Deadline Week. Pencils fall after Thursday.

The first dominoes fell earlier this year when the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors put aside their ongoing litigation to complete a deal involving OG Anunoby, RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley. The second big blow fell in January when the Raptors traded Pascal Siakam to the Indiana Pacers for a package centered around Bruce Brown Jr. and three first-round picks. Those deals took two of the biggest names out of the market.

Then someone besides Toronto finally made a move, Detroit and Washington completed a deal, and the Miami Heat acquired Terry Rozier in exchange for Kyle Lowry and a first-round pick. And of course, it’s worth noting that we had a huge one in the first few weeks of the season, when James Harden was traded to the Clippers from the 76ers. Because of all that action early in the cycle, he feels a little calm before the deadline. There doesn’t seem to be much star power available to be moved around. Several team and league sources, who were granted anonymity to speak freely, don’t expect a particularly far-fetched deadline.

That said, teams have a lot to gain and lose this week. While they will mostly be role players on the move, these guys could play critical roles in shaping the rest of the season.

Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors should look to reshuffle their rosters moving forward. The title picture seems wide open, meaning contenders like Oklahoma City, Denver, Minnesota, Boston and others should try to address their flaws. Others, like the Charlotte Hornets and Washington Wizards, will look to sell as they continue to fall out of the race. With so much at stake, I wonder if we’ll see some floodgates open as we get closer to Thursday’s 3pm deadline.

So let’s take a look at some of the remaining players available on the market. After starting with 25 names and then going to 40, we expanded to 50 and could have added more. (This list will also be updated as players are traded and/or more information arrives.)

Before we get to the names on this list, I want to address a few that aren’t here, at least not yet.

  • You won’t see all the stars David Mitchell either Lauri Markkanen. My impression from speaking with league sources is that the Cleveland Cavaliers are planning to hold out this season with Mitchell, especially given his hot streak over the last month. Meanwhile, Markkanen’s price is so high that he effectively takes him off the market.
  • you won’t see either Zach LaVine. After featuring prominently in the first two iterations of this list, he was removed due to his season-ending foot injury. It seems extremely unlikely that they will trade him while he is injured.
  • Jerami Grant not here. It remains difficult to assess the Portland Trail Blazers’ willingness to trade him, as well as how other teams value his five-year, $160 million contract.
  • There are four Brooklyn Nets players in this edition, with Dorian Finney-Smith, Dennis Smith Jr. and Spencer Dinwiddie joining Royce O’Neale. However, Mikal Bridges He doesn’t appear here, as the Nets have been telling teams they want to keep him. Nicholas Claxton There was another player under consideration, but I didn’t place him because he has clearly expressed how much he enjoys Brooklyn, making him a more likely candidate to re-sign this summer. It’s not impossible that he could move if someone destroys them, but he doesn’t exactly feel like he’s on the block either.
  • pull green remains off this list for now, despite Houston’s desire to upgrade its roster.
