While most fans are watching for a blockbuster trade to go down involving big names like Dwight Howard or Pau Gasol, there are several players who are much more likely to be on the move than either of the two big men.
Minor trades can often have huge impacts when it comes to contending teams, and it's important to remember that most contenders aren't looking to shake things up in dramatic fashion.
These six players may not shake up the NBA landscape, but all of them could be difference-makers in the right situation.
Boris Diaw has asked the Charlotte Bobcats to be bought out of his contract or traded elsewhere.
With an expiring $9 million contract, Diaw will certainly draw interest from a number of teams looking to add a versatile big man.
Although jokes are often made about his weight, Diaw is a solid passer for someone of his size and is capable of playing multiple positions.
Diaw has eight games of seven or more assists this season, and would be a very interesting addition to a team that could provide him with a consistent role.
Luke Ridnour has played alongside Ricky Rubio at shooting guard in Minnesota this season, but he's miscast in that role.
With two years and slightly over $8 million left on his current contract after the season, any team that trades for Ridnour would be able to integrate him into the long-term plans.
He's flying under the radar with some of the bigger names on the block, but Ridnour could be a very solid pickup for a team looking to bolster its depth in the point guard department.
Ridnour is currently a "backup plan" for the Trail Blazers, but he could be the primary target for a club looking to make him a starter.
It's not a secret that the Los Angeles Lakers have been searching for a point guard ever since the nixed Chris Paul trade, so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that the Lakers have spoken to Portland about a potential deal for Raymond Felton.
Although there was legitimate excitement when Felton was dealt to the Trail Blazers during the 2011 draft, he hasn't fit in like most thought he would has really struggled this season.
His contract is up at the end of the season, so he wouldn't come with a huge risk, but he's shooting a career-low 37.2 percent from the floor a just 24.4 percent from deep.
A change of scenery would be best for both parties.
Ramon Sessions has been mentioned in the same sentence as the Los Angeles Lakers for quite some time now, and that's unlikely to change until the point guard is finally traded out of Cleveland.
It would be a serious surprise if the Cavaliers held onto Sessions through the trade deadline, as there is not much opportunity for him with rookie Kyrie Irving in the fold.
The problem? Sessions is expected to opt out of his current deal after the season in order to become an unrestricted free agent, and the Lakers have been unwilling to meet the asking price of a first-round pick thus far.
Los Angeles is hesitant to take on more salary (and a greater luxury tax payment) without sending some back the other direction, but the Lakers' bench parts don't hold much appeal.
Jamal Crawford has struggled to garner a consistent role in Portland, but this talented scorer could be exactly what some teams desperately need.
Linked heavily to both the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves, according to Hoopsworld.com, there is no doubt that Crawford could provide a major boost to either of those two clubs.
Although he signed a two-year contract in the offseason, the veteran is expected to opt out after this season and become an unrestricted free agent once again this summer.
The price shouldn't be extraordinarily high to land him.
Despite most of the trade winds in Boston swirling around Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen is an awfully intriguing name to watch with the deadline looming.
At age 36, Allen is shooting a career-best 47.8 percent from behind the three-point line while averaging 14.9 points per game.
There has been some talk about the Clippers expressing interest in his services, and he would make for an awfully nice fit with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin in Los Angeles.
Since the team lost Chauncey Billups (Achilles) for the season, L.A. has been searching for a replacement.
Allen's contract expires at the end of the season.
