Spring is in the air. Pitchers and catchers are reporting for spring training, the trees will begin to blossom soon, and the NBA trading deadline is buzzing.
After the deadline, we get a good idea of who the contenders and pretenders are. There will be teams that make small tweaks, while others will try to pull off the blockbuster deal. This year, there are some big fish on the market, with multiple teams jockeying for position to make a trade.
Of course, each team has assets, draft picks, and expiring contracts they would like to get rid of. It will be Christmas in February for some teams, while others will be clearing house and talking about next year.
