With multiple teams out of playoff contention, teams will try and ship off some of their players for pieces that could help them in the future.

NBA

Even though teams have already played more than half their games, some teams have already took themselves out of playoff contention from a poor record. From those teams, here are players that could find themselves playing for a contender after the February 7 NBA trade deadline.

1

Kevin Love

Love has only been limited to a small amount of games on the court due to injury but when he has played, he has been the only good thing for the Cavs. Love has averaged 19 points, 13.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists so far this season. In the offseason, the Cavs inked Love to a four-year, $120 million extension which kicks in next season but is believed to be available for the right price.

2

Alec Burks

Burks has been sharing minutes with rookie Collin Sexton but when he’s on the court, he’s averaged 10.4 points, 2.1 assists, and 4.1 rebounds. He will become a free agent after this season so any contending team could get him for fairly cheap if a contending team is interested in him.
