The NBA trade deadline concludes Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. Central.

A number of deals have already happened before the deadline. The Pistons managed to land Simone Fontecchio from the Utah Jazz for Kevin Knox, the Celtics acquired Xavier Tillman from the Grizzlies for Lamar Stevens, and the Timberwolves traded for Monte Morris from the Pistons for Shake Milton and Troy Brown Jr. Several other stars are rumored to be involved in deals. Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell, Hornets forward Miles Bridges and Clippers forward PJ Tucker are among the names swirling around the rumor mill.

The Sixers could be looking for another big to replace the recently injured Joel Embiid.
