The NBA’s 2021 trade deadline period has kicked off with trades involving combo forwards P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza with more players of that type possibly being moved.

John Collins, Aaron Gordon, Harrison Barnes, Thaddeus Young and Lauri Markkanen are some of the players that could be moved.

“These are the types of guys that a lot of us want right now,” said a Western Conference general manager. “Last year when Jerami Grant got that big deal [three years, $60 million from the Detroit Pistons] people were surprised, but if he was put on the trade market right now they’d be flooded with offers for him.”

Meanwhile, on the other end, Kevin Love and LaMarcus Aldridge cannot be given away in a trade given their salaries relative to performance.
