With the trade deadline a week away and one big move (Blake Griffin) already made, it is time for the trade machine to get heating up. Teams have begun to actually sit players out amid trade negotiations this year. One of the players that went through this was Nikola Mirotic. He wound up getting traded to the New Orleans Pelicans earlier today. Tyreke Evans is also being sat out amid trade talks.
With that being said, Tyreke Evans is obviously headlining the list of guys that could potentially be on he move soon. We’ll start with guys that are looking like sure fire deals to be moved, and then get in to some long shots.
Guys that may as well be out the door already: G Tyreke Evans, C DeAndre Jordan, G Louis Williams, G George Hill, F Joe Johnson
The 50/50 guys (could stay, could go): G Rodney Hood, G Kemba Walker, F/C Tristan Thompson, F Julius Randle, G/F Vince Carter, SF Nick Batum, G/F Stanley Johnson, G JR Smith, G Marcus Smart
Long shots that could go: F/C Marc Gasol, F Kevin Love, G Isaiah Thomas, F Zach Randolph, G Jordan Clarkson, F Jabari Parker, G Will Barton, F Kenneth Faried, SG JJ Redick, SG Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, C Tyson Chandler, G/F TJ Warren, G Elfrid Payton, G/F Evan Fournier
Super long shots: F Kawhi Leonard, G CJ McCollum, F Kyle Kuzma, F Ryan Anderson
