The NBA trade deadline is February 18th. Still weeks away, but for many players around the league, it will be the longest weeks of the year.
Not only do legitimate trade rumors fly around at a seemingly incessant rate, but artificial rumors are also created to disrupt team chemistry and momentum.
The wild road to the deadline culminates over All-Star Weekend where every General Manager will be in the same city, and often times the same building – a perfect opportunity to flesh out any and every trade possibility.
To be clear, there are an exceptionally low percentage of NBA players who are untradeable.
