2023 NBA trade deadline live blog: Latest rumors and news


The 2023 NBA trade deadline has provided plenty of fireworks over the last week, and hopefully there's more coming as Thursday's 3 p.m. ET deadline approaches.

The biggest deal of the deadline so far happened early Thursday morning when the Nets sent superstar forward Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns in a huge deal that included several players and lots of unprotected first-round picks going to Brooklyn. Over the weekend, the Nets traded star guard Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks.

Plenty of other notable players could be on the move Thursday. Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby is a name to keep an eye on. Nets forward Jae Crowder, Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins, Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso and Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba are intriguing trade targets, too.

A bunch of contending teams, including the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors, have not made a meaningful addition yet. 

What kind of action will we see over the next few hours?
