Detroit Sports Center Detroit Sports Center Home News > NBA Trade Deadline Approaching NBA Trade Deadline Approaching Posted on 2/19/2014 9:52:00 AM Steve Babineau/NBA The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday. We will see if the Pistons, who are fighting for a postseason spot in the East, make any roster changes by tomorrow. Charlie Villanueva and Rodney Stuckey have been mentioned as possible players Detroit could deal, but nothing appears to be concrete. Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo continues to be mentioned as a big name player that could be on the move. Many believe that Rondo has remained in Boston because the Celtics want way too much in return. Lakers center Pau Gasol is once again being mentioned in several trade rumors. Gasol, who is in the final year of his contract, is dealing with a groin injury.
