Get caught up on the latest news, rumors and reports across the NBA.
By the time the NBA trade deadline comes on Feb. 7, most teams will have less than 25 games left before the regular season ends.
That means playoff bound teams will look around the league to see if they can pick up an extra piece that is needed to make a run at the title.
For those who are bound for the lottery, this is also a crucial time, as they may look to shed salary for cap space flexibility or pick up picks for June's draft.
One team that has already been in the rumor mill is the Memphis Grizzlies, who have put longtime mainstays Mike Conley and Marc Gasol on the trading block.
