NBA Trade Rumors: Ranking the 10 best bigs that are reportedly available ahead of the trade deadline. 

TEN DAYS AWAY FROM THE TRADE DEADLINE! I know some of you are growing impatient, but you need to hold your horses. Almost every competent seller will be waiting until February 10th to execute a deal to maximize their leverage. I promise you though, it is going DOWN at the deadline.

There are far too many players available and needy teams out there for the deadline to be uneventful. The rumors are beginning to swirl intensely, which is benefitting the NBA media you are consuming right now. Why don’t we combine two click-baitey tactics for today’s article? I have noticed that there is a multitude of big men available at this deadline. If you are looking for size in a couple of weeks, you will be able to find it. We will be power ranking the ten best bigs available at the deadline.

The only rule: We’ll only discuss big men attached to rumors. While guys like Kelly Olynyk are probably available and would make this list, there are not rumors out there of him being shopped. The same goes for Myles Turner. He was widely considered one of the best big men up for trade, but reports are that the recent stress fracture in his foot has made a deal less likely. Let’s get it going!
