The NBA’s NBA All-Star Weekend is upon us, and with it comes the big questions.
But first, what are the key things to know about this weekend?
This year’s NBA trade deadline is February 2, so here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to know.1.
NBA teams won’t be getting much in return for players2.
There are a lot of trade chips to be had4.
The league will use this weekend to sort out players, teams, and other assets that have been flagged for NBA tamperingThe deadline for NBA teams is February 3.
And, yes, there will be a lot to talk about, but let’s just focus on the important things right now.
Here are the main things to keep in mind:There are plenty of players the league wants to get to.
There’s a lot more to the process than what is currently known.
The Lakers, the Cavs, and the Clippers are among the teams already linked to the Celtics and Spurs.
There will be teams that need to be dealt that the NBA is currently sorting through.
There is a lot riding on what the NBA decides to do with players, so there is a whole lot to consider.
Here’s a look at what to watch.1) NBA Trade Deadline: February 3The deadline to trade players will take place at 3 p.m.
ET on Feb. 3, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.
That’s when teams will be allowed to send their draft picks (including No. 1 picks) to the league.
The Cavaliers have made an effort to trade down in the first round and will likely do so with their first-round pick in the upcoming draft.
That will allow them to move up a few spots to grab the pick.
The Celtics have the No. 2 pick, which is in the top two rounds, and they have to trade that to the Bucks for the No: 3 pick, too.
The Cavs are in position to take a top-three pick, but it’s not clear whether they’ll move down that far.
The Bulls are currently No. 4 in the draft, so they would be able to trade up to pick No. 6.
The Cavaliers have been linked to Kevin Love, but he’s also reportedly been linked with the Lakers, Timberwolves, Celtics, and Bucks.
The Raptors are also rumored to be in the mix, though they don’t have the same first-rounder in the 2019 draft.
The Celtics have some serious options here.
If they move down, they could acquire the Lakers’ No. 3 pick.
If the Cavs trade down, then they can acquire the Wolves’ No 1 pick.
Both moves are possible, and if one of those moves happens, it’s a sign that the Celtics have interest in adding players that could potentially help them with the rebuild.
The Sixers have the second-highest draft position in the NBA, so adding another top-tier player could be the best move.
The Raptors also have options.
The Blazers have the fourth-best overall draft position, but if they trade down and pick No 2, they’re in a position to move to No. 5.
If a deal is made, they have a chance to grab Love and go higher.
The Spurs are in the same position, as they could potentially trade down for the Celtics’ No 3.
The Thunder could move up to No 5 if they want to get a player that can help the rebuild, and that could open up the possibility for a trade.
There are a ton of potential trade chips that the league could look at.
The teams in the Eastern Conference will be able take advantage of the trade deadline, but there are also teams in both the West and the Pacific Division that could get into the top four.
The Clippers, Cavaliers, Kings, and Magic could all be in a good spot to make a splash.
The Warriors, Knicks, and Lakers could be in position for some major upgrades.
There is no clear consensus among the top teams.
The top teams in each conference have some legitimate candidates for deals, while the rest of the league has plenty of uncertainty surrounding who will get the first- and second-round picks.
That uncertainty has already given the league an incentive to make deals.
It’s not unusual for players to be linked to teams in different conferences.
Teams in different divisions could get a lot out of a trade for a first- or second-rounder, and it could be worth it for the NBA to make it happen.
Here is a look back at the players that have already been linked.2) The NBA Trade Period BeginsThe NBA Trade period starts at 2 p.y.
