For all of the latest trade deadline action, follow SN's Thursday live blog HERE.

With less than 24 hours to go until the NBA trade deadline, there will be rumors flying all around the league, but how many deals will actually be completed?

Unlike last season, an Anthony Davis-level star is not available to loom over trade conversations. This Thursday's 3 p.m. ET deadline is more likely to bring moves involving role players rather than the blockbusters that basketball fans have grown accustomed to seeing.

TRADE RUMORS: Which players could Lakers target?

We shouldn't rule out the possibility of more "Woj Bombs," though. It only takes one call from a general manager to get the trade train in motion.

Sporting News will help you track all of the trade chaos below. Here are the latest reported deals and speculation ahead of Thursday's deadline.

Latest NBA trade rumors and news

(All times Eastern)

12:45 a.m. — The 76ers find some depth on the trade market. They will need to waive or send out two players in order to create roster spots for Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III.

11:20 p.m. — Oh boy. The trade is expanding.

10:05 p.m. — In other news, the Kings and Hawks are doing stuff.

9 p.m. — Memphis received a draft pick in the initial Andre Iguodala trade, and now it will land at least Justise Winslow in another deal. That's a nice win for the Grizzlies.

8:30 p.m. — Wait, Andre Iguodala is heading to Miami AND he got paid? This man knows what he's doing.

8:15 p.m. — Yeah, the Heat might be really going for the Eastern Conference crown.

7:55 p.m. — The Pistons and Suns haven't made progress on a potential Luke Kennard trade. Eh, whatever. Holler over if you guys are going to do something.

7:35 p.m. — To borrow some words from Russell Westbrook, "Ah, that's pretty interesting!" Stay tuned.

7:15 p.m. — D'Angelo Russell isn't involved, but we could see a couple Warriors sent to new teams before the deadline.

5:30 p.m. — Let's get a little Lakers guard action going. Well, sort of. Nothing feels imminent as of Wednesday night.

5 p.m. — Another wing player hits the market. Kelly Oubre is averaging a career-high 18.5 points per game and shooting nearly 35 percent from 3-point range for the Suns.

4:15 p.m. — So, this isn't exactly trade news, but ... is everything OK in Philadelphia?

3 p.m. — The Timberwolves aren't the only team interested in D'Angelo Russell. (Again, it wouldn't be a surprise if he stays with the Warriors.)

2:40 p.m. — Houston isn't done just yet. The Rockets are close to acquiring a center, but who could they be targeting?

1:20 p.m. — After firing team president Steve Mills, the Knicks have softened their stance on Marcus Morris. A Lakers deal could be in play with Kyle Kuzma at the center of a trade package, but as SNY's Ian Begley reports, we're far from anything being finalized.

11:15 a.m. — While D'Angelo Russell has been one of the bigger names thrown around in trade talks, it wouldn't be a surprise if he stays with the Warriors past the deadline. There is always a chance the Timberwolves re-engage if they are in Russell-or-bust mode, but that doesn't seem to be the case as of Wednesday morning.

10:10 a.m. — The Hawks are waiving Chandler Parsons in order to create a roster spot and acquire Clint Capela and Nene from the Rockets as part of Tuesday's four-team trade.

8:40 a.m. — It appears suitors for Jrue Holiday aren't prepared to pay the exorbitant price required to pry him away from the Pelicans.

7:30 a.m. — Good morning. You missed a 12-player, four-team trade late Tuesday night. Here we go!

  • Rockets receive: Jordan Bell, Robert Covington, Hawks 2024 second-round pick (via Warriors)

  • Hawks receive: Clint Capela, Nene

  • Timberwolves receive: Malik Beasley, Juan Hernangomez, Evan Turner, Jarred Vanderbilt, Hawks 2020 first-round pick (via Nets)

  • Nuggets receive: Keita Bates-Diop, Gerald Green, Shabazz Napier, Noah Vonleh, Rockets 2020 first-round pick
