The 2018 NBA Trade Deadline will be here soon. What day will it be on? Could the San Antonio Spurs do anything?

The NBA Trade Deadline remains one of the league’s most active days of the year. It features last-minute trades for most of the league, ones that will shape the final two months of the season. These may influence the playoff race or help a team tank towards a pick in the upper half of the NBA Draft.

The San Antonio Spurs are notorious for not making a deadline-day move. Their last one happened in 2014, with the acquisition of Austin Daye for Nando De Colo.

Maybe the “biggest” trade from the Spurs happened during the 2011-12 season. They traded TJ Ford, Richard Jefferson and a conditional 2012 first round pick to the Golden State Warriors for Stephen Jackson, who contributed to a playoff run.

Otherwise, the Silver and Black have not completed a big-name trade at the deadline. No franchise-altering moves like the Detroit Pistons’ acquisition of Blake Griffin or when the New York Knicks traded for Carmelo Anthony.

At 34-21, the Spurs sit at No. 3 in the Western Conference. It’s six games behind the Houston Rockets and eight after the Golden State Warriors. Does this require a transaction to be made in the coming days?
