Published Add your comment

The NBA trade deadline is charging into the peripheral with February 20th fast approaching and teams wanting to get rid of certain assets any which way they can to free up cap space, acquire draft picks, or simply fill a need.

One such deal could be a three-way trade between the Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks.

According to Ian Begley of, the deal would involve Kyle Lowry going to the Knicks, Jeff Teague going to the Raptors and Iman Shumpert heading to the Hawks, amongst other possibilities involving various draft picks and such.

Begley reports that the talks are just in the preliminary stages and haven’t advanced yet to anything near certainties with the deadline still a few days away yet.

"League sources say a scenario in which Teague ends up in Toronto, Shumpert goes to Atlanta and Lowry winds up in New York has been discussed.

Another scenario could have Teague ending up in New York. The conversations are believed to be preliminary and have not reached an advanced stage."

All players in speculation have been noted as being able to move if the right deal came along, with none of the sides involved going to be in any serious playoff contention come the post-season.
