List Rules Vote up the NBA players you think are most likely to be traded very, very soon.

As the NBA's February 23 trade deadline nears, fans are already speculating about which players will be traded in the 2016-2017 season. With half the season gone, this season's final trades may make or break a team's chances for the NBA playoffs. Trade rumors are floating throughout the league, so we've compiled a list of the NBA players who most likely will be traded very soon. 

On January 7, the Atlanta Hawks traded three-point specialist Kyle Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Mo Williams and Mike Dunleavy. By adding one of the league's most consistent three-point shooters, the Cavs might have improved their chances for a consecutive NBA championship. 

Notable NBA players who are rumored to move teams include the Chicago Bulls' Rajon Rondo, the Atlanta Hawks' Paul Millsap, and the Sacramento Kings' Rudy Gay. Trading any of these players not only helps their playoff run, but can also boost a struggling franchise. 

Vote up the NBA players you think will be traded before the February 23 trade deadline. This list features expected trade candidates like the Phoenix Suns' Brandon Knight and the Philadelphia 76ers' Jahlil Okafor, as well as a few unlikely players, such as the Sacramento Kings' DeMarcus Cousins and the Minnesota Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio.
