The 2021 NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m., and this year’s market is still taking shape. Many teams who in years past would have been sellers are now potentially buyers, and that gives an advantage to a team like the Detroit Pistons, with so few teams billed as clear sellers.

That’s because of the NBA’s new play-in tournament at the end of the regular season, pitting the No. 9 and No. 10 seeds against each other with the winner facing the No. 7-No. 8 loser for the right to earn the 8-seed in the postseason.

Some of the biggest names rumored to be on the market include Kyle Lowry (Toronto), Victor Oladipo (Houston), Aaron Gordon (Orlando), Lonzo Ball (New Orleans), Norman Powell (Toronto) and Evan Fournier (Orlando).

The Pistons made the first move of deadline day, dealing Delon Wright to Sacramento early Thursday morning.
