Trade Deadline blues

Nothing, absolutely nothing has gone on so far during the lead up to the NBA trade deadline. Sooooo boring. How do we spice the proceedings up?

USA TODAY Sports

Here is the rundown of the latest (and few) rumors on the trade deadline.

From David Aldridge:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Told Clippers are very likely to stick with what they have going forward and not be involved in any deals, significant or otherwise.</p>&mdash; David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) <a href="https://twitter.com/daldridgetnt/status/304375896238862337">February 20, 2013</a></blockquote>

From Matt Moore at CBS Sports the Celtics and Nets have discussed a deal for Paul Pierce:

The Nets pretty much are just targeting the biggest, most expensive pieces theyc an, but unfortunately, they can't afford to move anyone of value because they overpaid for all of them in the offseason. Gerald Wallace is still a quality player but he's got three years and $30 million left on his deal.

The Nets would love to send Kris Humphries out and have pretty much peddled him to everyone in the league, and then being surprised when everyone responds with "Do you realize how much you paid him?"

Here's a great article by Dr. Travis Heath on Hoopsworld about the psychology of the NBA Trade Deadline. Travis Heath is always a must-read.
