And Adrian Wojnarowski spoke with one GM who said no legit offers are being made:
Asked one GM what he had: “We’re down to bulls— text message offers from people who couldn’t keep a straight face if they called.”

And Marc Stein offered this sobering picture:
We’re gonna see deals in final hour of NBA trade season. Just not sort of deals Twitter wants to see … apart from maybe the Josh Smith-er

The biggest names who were rumoured to be on the move coming into today were Josh Smith, Monta Ellis, Eric Bledsoe, and Paul Millsap. It seems like the Hawks are coming to trade Smith, but it’s quiet everywhere else.
