8 Players Who Could Still Be Moved Before Start of NBA Season
Will Josh Smith and Greg Monroe enter the 2014-15 season with Detroit? That remains to be seen.

Though the long-awaited Kevin Love-to-Cleveland deal has finally come to fruition, NBA trade season isn't over just yet.

As Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Aug. 26, the Los Angeles Clippers agreed to send swingman Jared Dudley and a future first-round pick to the Milwaukee Bucks for Carlos Delfino and center Miroslav Raduljica. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported that the Clippers will be sending a protected 2017 first-rounder to Milwaukee, while the Bucks will ship over a future second-round pick to L.A.

That wasn't the only deal consummated that day. The Philadelphia 76ers agreed to take on the contract of Oklahoma City Thunder center Hasheem Thabeet in exchange for cash considerations, according to Stein. The Sixers reportedly planned to waive Thabeet immediately, per Stein, before his $1.25 million contract became guaranteed.

On Sunday, Woj broke the news that the Houston Rockets were finalizing an agreement to acquire Sacramento Kings guard Jason Terry in exchange for "a package centered on non-guaranteed contracts, including Alonzo Gee, that the Kings can ultimately waive and gain salary savings and roster space." Sacramento is also sending Houston two second-round picks in the deal.

Though Dudley, Delfino, Thabeet and Terry aren't exactly headliners, a handful of bigger names still remain available on the trade market. A few restricted free agents could be dangled in sign-and-trade discussions over the coming weeks, while other teams simply need to clear out gluts at certain positions.

Let's take a look at eight such players who could be moved between now and the start of the 2014-15 season, based on recent reports from those plugged into their respective teams' situations.
