The NBA trade deadline never lacks when it comes to the drama and intrigue surrounding it. There are always big names churning through the rumor mill — some truly in danger of being moved, others just being thrown out as smokescreens.
We’re mostly seeing the latter so far this year for the trade deadline.
There are lots of names being discussed so far as we inch closer and closer to the end here, but there doesn’t seem to be much action surrounding any of them.
With that being said, though, some teams have already made moves to improve their team on the fringes. Some teams have also already made some pretty splashy moves — they just took action a while ago.
With that in mind, here’s a running tracker for every trade we’ve seen so far ahead of the deadline. Come back here as the trades continue to flow in for a quick rundown.
The Clippers made their move for James Harden earlier this season and are now the No. 1 seed in the West.

The Miami Heat finally have a point guard. Terry Rozier isn’t Damian Lillard, obviously, but the Heat are hoping he gives the team the scoring punch it’s been lacking this season. That’s why Miami was willing to part ways with a first-round pick for him.
