A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams
in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates
how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1
means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Central Division.
They’ll Make A Move: Because if they don’t prove to LeBron they can win a title this year, he may walk leaving their franchise is in complete ruins and collectively sending the state of Ohio into a depression that would make “Atonement” into Saturday Morning Cartoons.
Why They Won’t:
They have the best team in the league, the best player in the league, and they’re going to need space to re-sign that player.
Verdict: Currently talking to Phoenix, Washington, Golden State, and potentially the People’s United Republic of Uzbekistan.*
*not a real country, much like the Warriors are not a real franchise
