With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching, it seems many teams are looking to make some moves that may position themselves better for the playoffs, or that will give them room to build in the offseason. The biggest trade to come this season so far would have to be former Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins for first round pick Buddy Hield, former Kings player Tyreke Evans, and a first round pick. This trade will likely put the Pelicans in contention for the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs along with the Denver Nuggets. Cousins, who was the cornerstone of the Kings, is averaging about 28 points and 11 rebounds a game and will now be paired with one of the best players in the league, Anthony Davis as one of the best big men duos in the league. Davis is averaging about 28 points and 12 rebounds a game and along with Jrue Holiday, they will make a case against the Golden State Warriors in the first round should they make the playoffs. As for the Kings, it will likely take years to rebuild and find a cornerstone player like Cousins was. Other notable trades include Lou Williams going from the Lakers to the Rockets for Corey Brewer and a draft pick. This will give the Rockets another power player off the bench with Eric Gordon and more power in the playoffs. As of yet, there are not many notable trades, but come the end of the week, it can be expected that there will be more.
