With the NBA expanding its playoff format and a crowd of teams right around .500, there are only a limited number of teams that will look to sell pieces ahead of the trade deadline.

“They’re selling,” said Tim MacMahon regarding the Houston Rockets. “They’re definitely selling.”

“The only teams that are truly selling are Houston, Cleveland and Oklahoma City,” interjected Tim MacMahon. “Everybody else is ether not going either way, like probably a team like Detroit, or trying to make the playoffs.”

The Cavaliers are aggressively shopping Andre Drummond, while the Rockets could make Victor Oladipo available. The Thunder, meanwhile, have traded away a number of their veterans over the past few months as they begin a full rebuild.
