Marquee NBA players most likely to be traded: Victor Oladipo, Houston Rockets

A key player who was involved in the blockbuster deal that sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets, Victor Oladipo will more than likely be on the trade block once again especially if he won’t commit long-term to Houston.

The Rockets are expected to shop Oladipo heading into the NBA Trade Deadline, but a steep asking price could be the biggest obstacle in finding a deal. While he is still a good player, Oladipo’s injury history may prevent some teams from pursuing him even though he is putting up decent numbers scoring 20.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists while shooting 38.7 percent from the field.

Those numbers should increase over time as Oladipo’s overall health improves as he is expected to get back to the all-star level he is capable of playing at.
