The NBA trade deadline is still two months away, but the unofficial start of the trade season has already passed. More than 70 free agents who signed with their teams in the offseason were eligible to be traded on Dec. 15. A few more All-Star caliber options will be available in January. However, it would be surprising to see the New Orleans Pelicans rush a trade early this offseason.

Only four deals were completed last January. New Orleans swung for the fences last year with deals near the deadline for C.J. McCollum and Larry Nance Jr., but they had to wait out the market. Still, the Pelicans needed to shake up the roster around Brandon Ingram in order to make the playoffs, and the deal with the Portland Trail Blazers worked out great.
