(Undated) -- Wheeling and dealing is expected to take place in the NBA today. The annual NBA trade deadline will take place. It's the last chance for buyers and sellers to either build for now or for the future as the season winds down. Plenty of big names have been rumored in trades over recent weeks, including Brooklyn's James Harden and Philadelphia's Ben Simmons. Earlier this week, Portland shipped C.J. McCollum to New Orleans.
