The San Antonio Spurs are interested in Thaddeus Young or Ersan Ilyasova. Both players would help out the Spurs tremendously but the Spurs do not have someone they could easily trade for either of these players. Both of these players are very valuable and are huge assets to their current teams. These players would make the Spurs a major title contender but who knows if a trade like this will actually happen.

The Brooklyn Nets are considering a trade to aquire point guard Jarret Jack. The Nets are considering trading Jason Terry for Jarret Jack but neither player has had a good season so far. Jarret Jack would be a small upgrade though as Jason Terry could retire soon. The Nets have been having a awful year and it is time to make some changes to try to turn around their season in the second half of the NBA.

The New York Knicks have shown interest in the young player Jeff Teague. Teague has shown his great speed and quickness that could really help the struggling Knicks. The Knicks are also thinking about giving away Iman Shumpert who seems like a great trade for the Hawks. The Knicks are in need of a new point guard and the Hawks know that Jeff Teague is not the long term answer for them. This trade seems possible right now but we will see what really happens

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been browsing the markets for a shooter. They are looking for a swingman to fortify them for a title run. A good cheap shooter would be an excellent pair with all star Kevin Durant and the thunder have players to trade such as Jeremy Lamb or Thabo Sefolosha. A trade like this would put the Thunder in a great place to earn a title.
