To help identify which NBA teams will be looking to acquire players for a playoff or championship push, which teams will trade players to accumulate more draft picks and which teams will mostly stand pat with what they have, we have broken down the rosters and draft picks for all 30 teams.

Along with identifying the big questions each team must answer leading up to the Feb. 9 trade deadline, we’ve listed the players who are off the board (either because their team won’t trade them under any circumstances or can’t trade them because of some contract restriction), potential trade targets, value contracts and tough-to-move contracts.

KEY: player = player option; RFA = restricted free agent; UFA = unrestricted free agent; team = team option; ETO = early termination option


Atlanta Hawks

Front-office discussions: Do we reassess the Trae Young-Dejounte Murray pairing in the offseason (or possibly now) or are we all-in on both players? Has the play of AJ Griffin made Bogdan Bogdanovic expendable? Do we have enough frontcourt depth? Are we comfortable with Aaron Holiday in the role of facilitator off the bench? Should we reassess the future of John Collins in the offseason when there could be more suitors?

Off the board: Young ($37.1M, player 2026), Murray ($16.6M, UFA 2024) and De’Andre Hunter (poison-pill restriction)

Players with trade value: Collins ($23.5M, player 2025) and Bogdanovic ($18M, player)

Free agents in July: Aaron Holiday ($1.8M, UFA), Justin Holiday ($6.3M, UFA), Frank Kaminsky ($1.8M, UFA) and Bogdanovic ($18M, Player)

Controllable contracts: Onyeka Okongwu ($6.4M, RFA 2024), Griffin ($3.5M, RFA 2026), Jalen Johnson ($2.8M, RFA 2025), Vit Krejci ($1.6M, Team, 2025) and Tyrese Martin ($1M, RFA 2024)

Long-term salary: Clint Capela ($18.7M, UFA 2025)

Draft capital: The Hawks owe San Antonio an unprotected first-round pick in both 2025 and 2027. The Spurs also have the right to swap firsts in 2026. Atlanta has a top-15 protected first-round pick from Sacramento in 2024 (top-12 protected in 2025 and top-10 protected in 2026). It will turn into 2026 and 2027 second-round picks if not conveyed by the Kings. The Hawks are allowed to trade the Kings’ first-round pick and their own first-round pick in 2029. Atlanta has 12 second-round picks available to trade.

The finances: The Hawks are $1.28 million below the luxury tax. They can add a 15th player and remain below the threshold. The Hawks are right at the $162 million tax level for 2023-24. They have $4.5M and $3.6M trade exceptions.


Boston Celtics

Front-office discussions: Are we comfortable with the depth of our frontcourt? Do we have the green light from ownership to increase the $58.9M tax bill?

Off the board: Jayson Tatum ($30.4M, player 2025) and Jaylen Brown ($28.7M, UFA 2024)

Players with trade value: Payton Pritchard ($2.2M, RFA 2024) and Grant Williams ($4.3M, RFA 2023)

Free agents in July: Danilo Gallinari ($6.5M, player), Blake Griffin ($1.8M, UFA), Grant Williams (RFA) and Justin Jackson ($1.8M, UFA)

Controllable contracts: Sam Hauser ($1.6M, team 2024) and Luke Kornet ($2.1M, UFA 2024)

Long-term salary: Al Horford ($26.5M, UFA 2025), Malcolm Brogdon ($22.6M, UFA 2025), Marcus Smart ($17.2M, UFA 2026), Derrick White ($16.9M, UFA 2025) and Robert Williams III ($10.9M, UFA 2026)

Draft capital: The Celtics owe Indiana a top-12 protected first-round pick in 2023. They are not allowed to trade a first-round pick until 2025. The Spurs have the right to swap firsts in 2028 if Boston’s is from 2 to 30. Boston has six second-round picks available to trade.

The finances: The Celtics are $23.7M over the luxury tax and have a projected penalty of $58.9M. Boston has six trade exceptions ranging from $1.7M to $6.9M. The Celtics also have a disabled player exception valued at $3.2M. Boston is likely to be in the tax next season if restricted free agent Grant Williams signs a new contract.
