The NBA has moved past the last trade deadline to its next trade deadline, with the deadline day being February 14.
The NBA trade period is usually the last day of the regular season, but there’s an opportunity to trade at the end of February.
That could mean that the Nets are interested in the Nets first round pick, the Lakers second, or a pick or two from the Raptors.
The deadline could also come and go before the NBA Finals, which could mean another player or team is on the clock, as well.
The NBA is scheduled to hold a trade deadline in Los Angeles on March 12, but that date could be moved if the NBA determines that the game should be postponed.
The league could also decide to hold its next NBA trade show at Staples Center.
The Lakers and Nets traded first-round picks for Julius Randle and Joe Johnson on Friday, according to The Athletic’s Marc Stein.
The Nets acquired Randle at the deadline in exchange for the rights to forward Brandon Bass, the Nets’ second-round pick, and the rights of a future second-rounder from the Lakers, according of ESPN’s Marc J. Spears.
The Nets are still seeking the Lakers’ 2017 first-rounder, which they hope to trade for their 2018 first-and-only.
