Several Big Name Players Become Trade Eligible As Of Today (Jan. 15)


According to NBA rules, any player who re-signed with their previous team before the season with Bird or Early Bird rights, got a raise of at least 20%, and whose team was over the salary cap, cannot be traded until January 15th. That day has now arrived, freeing up several big names into the trade market. 

Following is a list of players, by team, who can be dealt as of today:

Atlanta Hawks: John Collins

Brooklyn Nets: Bruce Brown

Cleveland Cavaliers: Jarrett Allen

Detroit Pistons: Hamidou Diallo

Houston Rockets: David Nwaba

Indiana Pacers: TJ McConnell

Los Angeles Lakers: Talen Horton-Tucker

Los Angeles Clippers: Reggie Jackson

Miami Heat: Duncan Robinson

Minnesota Timberwolves: Jordan McLaughlin Minnesota Timberwolves: Jarred Vanderbilt

New Orleans Pelicans: Josh Hart

Philadelphia 76ers: Furkan Korkmaz

Phoenix Suns: Cameron Payne Portland Trail Blazers: Norman Powell

Toronto Raptors: Gary Trent Jr. Sacramento Kings: Terence Davis, Richaun Holmes Of this entire list, the only player who would seem to be completely free of any possibility of being traded would be Jarrett Allen, who's having an All-Star type season with the Cavs, helping to lead them into strong playoff contention in the East.

Rumors abound about John Collins' unhappiness in Atlanta, and there's been thought he could be part of a potential Ben Simmons trade.

For the Lakers, 21-year-old Talen Horton-Tucker is really their most valuable trade piece, if they hope to make a significant move.

The Indiana Pacers and Portland Trail Blazers are thought to have nearly everyone on the roster available (not named Damian Lillard, in Portland's case).
