As the trade deadline approaches, there have been a number of trade rumors around the league, especially regarding the possibility of some of the biggest names being traded.The first is Damian Lillard, who is currently unavailable for the Blazers, even if he is unable to play due to injury, but Lillard is still the player in the trade rumors.According to NBA analyst Chadford, Lillard would prefer to move to the West rather than bring his talent to the East Coast: “I don’t actually think, or at least I haven’t heard, that Damian Lillard would want to go to Philadelphia.In fact, what I’ve heard is that he prefers to stay on the West Coast.”For some teams, this could be a big deal, as lillard has been rumored to be moving to the Lakers for some time, especially since Russell Westbrook hasn’t been good enough so far this season.Of course, it’s still up in the air whether Lillard will be traded.On the other hand, according to Kevin O ‘Connor, the Jazz are interested in jerami Grant and Harrison Barnes as wing players:”Grant and Barnes are the two players the Jazz have had trade talks with, league sources said, as the jazz aim to acquire wings with good enough defense with a week to go before the trade deadline.”So far this season the Jazz have really needed to play on the wing, and it will no doubt be interesting to see what they can do at the trade deadline.Finally, the Raptors are considered a team in need of some interior reinforcements.Jack Fisher of the Bleachers says the Raptors are trying a Myles Turner deal as the trade deadline approaches: Turner is certainly the player that would give the Raptors better inside depth, but the raptors’ ability to push a deal involving Turner will largely depend on the pacers’ asking price.
