February is a busy month in the NBA, from the trade deadline to All-Star weekend. It’s a period where New York Knicks fans make sure to have notifications on for Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania because, during the second month of the year, sleep doesn’t exist.
The Nets “silently” traded Kevin Durant to the Suns in the middle of the night this past season, making for one of the more memorable deadlines. Meanwhile, the Knicks made one move, but it didn’t take long for it to pay off.
New York could be more active at the 2024 deadline, especially if Philadelphia caves and listens to offers for Joel Embiid.
When is the 2024 NBA trade deadline?
The 2024 NBA trade deadline is 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, Feb. 8. It isn’t unusual for a couple of trades to be announced after the deadline as teams scramble to make last-minute moves.
Could the Knicks make a deal for a star at the 2024 trade deadline?
New York fans have been waiting with bated breath for Leon Rose to make his big move since taking over as president. It isn’t out of the question for the Knicks to make a splash in February, but it depends on which stars are available and how they’d fit alongside Jalen Brunson.
There are a lot of Sixers questions waiting to be answered, but none more important than James Harden’s future. If Philadelphia’s future is crumbling faster than Daryl Morey can piece it together, Embiid could be the biggest domino of the deadline.
