Bulls get help for playoffs, Magic headed for rebuild

A couple of years ago, the NBA moved the trade deadline ahead of All-Star Weekend.

In another example of how COVID-19 has impacted the NBA schedule, the trade deadline not only follows the All-Star Game this season, it’s two-plus weeks after the game was played.

With nearly two months left in the 2020-21 regular season and lots unsettled in the standings, the trade deadline is at 3 p.m. ET today.

Who will be traded? Kyle Lowry? Victor Oladipo? Lonzo Ball? Harrison Barnes?

Who is going to make the big move? Boston? Philadelphia? Miami? Los Angeles Clippers? Denver?

USA TODAY will have all the moves covered through Thursday’s deadline.
