The trade deadline is just one day away and while there have been some stunners, such as the Clippers' blockbuster trade with the 76ers, expect more fireworks to occur before 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 7.

The Clippers agreed to trade Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott to the 76ers for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala and a 2020 first-round pick, a 2021 unprotected first-round pick and two second round picks (2021 and 2023).

The Washington Wizards also made a deal on Wednesday, sending Otto Porter to the Chicago Bulls for Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker. The Wizards also received a 2023 second-round pick.

As the trade deadline nears, Pelicans forward Anthony Davis remains the biggest wild card out there as he wants out of New Orleans with the Lakers being the biggest suitors. The Lakers have made their initial contact with the Pelicans, but reportedly New Orleans has been "underwhelmed" by those first offers.

Mike Conley and Marc Gasol could also be on the move. The Grizzlies are in the midst of several serious discussions to move their cornerstone stars.
