Jake Fisher, Senior NBA reporter for Yahoo Sports, joined The Drive Guys to talk about the latest news and trade deadline rumors swirling around the NBA.

Teams have just over a month to make a move before the NBA’s deadline on Thursday, Feb. 8.

Topics discussed include:

  • Of all the players who have popped in reports — Pascal Siakam and Dejounte Murray to name a few — who are the most likely to be moved by the deadline?
  • The latest on Lauri Markkanen and whether or not he’s still on the market
  • Do the Sacramento Kings have enough assets to make a significant move by the deadline?
  • The Kings were one of the teams that were “most aggressive” in trying to acquire OG Anunoby and they’re still “a team that’s being considered” for Siakam
  • A name that could be associated with the Kings before the trade deadline is Jerami Grant.
  • Which teams need to make a move before the deadline?
