Basketball by Association: Predicting Buyers and Sellers at the NBA Trade Deadline

February 7th, 2013

It's becoming clear who's looking to add versus subtract at this year's NBA Trade Deadline.

The sellers are watching their playoff chances go down the tubes, are looking to improve their cap space, want to collect future assets or all of the above.

The buyers are looking to load up for a big end-of-season run or just get a jump start on acquiring talent before the free agency period begins this offseason.
