One Month Away: What to Expect in the 2024 NBA Trade Deadline


The NBA trade talk is heating up! Every day, there’s a new buzz about players possibly changing teams. But it’s not always easy to figure out what’s true and what’s not. Sometimes, reports come from teams wanting to make a player look more valuable, or it could be the player’s team trying to handle some pressure. It’s like a puzzle, trying to understand where the rumors are really coming from.

Zach LaVine to the Lakers

In the beginning of the season, the player’s performance may have made him seem less valuable. He hasn’t been as involved, and surprisingly, the Chicago Bulls have done better when he’s not playing. Still, some team might believe he can get back to scoring like he did in the last five seasons. They might try to outbid an offer involving players like D’Angelo Russell, Rui Hachimura, Jalen Hood-Schifino, and a first-round pick, but it’s tricky due to certain rules and past trades.


The Lakers might not need to add Austin Reaves, but offering Max Christie, swapping first-round picks, and throwing in some second-rounders could be a winning deal in a market not too interested in LaVine at the moment. The Lakers can afford to go all-in (except for Reaves) due to the urgent need to win with 39-year-old LeBron James and frequently injured Anthony Davis, especially when their offense ranks in the bottom 10.”

Jonathan Kuminga Stays Put

Jonathan Kuminga might not be scoring big, just averaging 12.8 points and 4.1 rebounds with an average shooting percentage, but he’s a tall and exceptional athlete, even among NBA players. It seems like he’s looking for a change. After a game where the Warriors lost an 18-point lead, Kuminga, according to a source, lost faith in coach Steve Kerr. The game was a tipping point for him.

The Warriors might have to trade Kuminga, along with the higher-paid players like Chris Paul, Andrew Wiggins, or Draymond Green, to bring in a star before the deadline. However, it makes sense to keep Kuminga. Many teams, in the past, traded away their future for a slightly better chance to win now, only to regret it later when the star player is no longer around or at the end of their career.

Pascal Siakam to the Kings

Sacramento Kings fans might have felt a bit confused this week. First, The Athletic’s Shams Charania said they were really trying to get Pascal Siakam. Then, just two hours later, he wrote that they decided to stop talking about getting Pascal Siakam altogether. It was a quick change of plans!

With a month left until the trade deadline, it’s clear that every team, including these two, is being tough about their players and assets. However, for the Toronto Raptors, keeping Pascal Siakam doesn’t really make sense now. They’ve already started a soft reboot with the OG Anunoby trade, and the relationship between Siakam, who’s in the final year of his contract, and the front office is complicated. A trade seems like the next sensible move. The Raptors can’t risk losing Siakam without getting anything in return (similar to what happened with Fred VanVleet), and the Kings have the assets to make the deal, even if they don’t include Murray.

Pacers Move Buddy Hield for a Defender

Buddy Hield has been in trade talks since he joined the Indiana Pacers, and now, according to Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer, he’s officially up for grabs. While keeping him in the blue and gold made sense before because of his excellent three-point shooting, the Pacers now have plenty of that.


Indiana’s struggling with defense, ranking near the bottom in points allowed per 100 possessions alongside the Pistons and Hornets. Adding just one player, even someone in Hield’s range, won’t fix everything, but even a small improvement could make a difference. This season, Hield is expected to be traded, and the Pacers are likely aiming to get a player who can contribute on both ends of the court in return.
