As the February 9 NBA trade deadline quickly approaches, you can bet that some of the biggest teams in the league will start communicating and discussing major changes before the postseason arrives.
We have heard all of the rumors and we are sure to hear more soon.
Two teams in the East, the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks, are apparently having a conversation about trading a couple of players who have long been talked about as moving targets.
According to @MikeAScotto the Knicks and Bucks have had discussions about Cam Reddish & Grayson Allen.

Reddish has been in the news for months now since it became apparent that head coach Tom Thibodeau didn’t have space for him in his rotation.
The forward has been putting up 8.4 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1 assist a game and multiple teams have been linked to acquiring him.
As for Allen, he has been with the Bucks for a couple of years now and is scoring 10.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.6 assists on 44.5% from the field and 40.3% from the three.
Allen is known for his dogged personality – which has sometimes gotten him into trouble – and defensive skills.
Both of these players are similar in many ways and they could each find a suitable home on their new teams.
For Allen, he would likely be doing more of the same in New York but Reddish could get a new lease on life.
Fans have been waiting patiently for Reddish to come into his own and reach the full potential that he has shown glimpses of.
