The NBA Trade Deadline hits today at 3 p.m. and thus far there’s been zero movement. Is this a calm before the storm or will the 2007 trade deadline come and go without major incident? There certainly are enough rumors floating around to make today an interesting one, and the New Jersey Nets figure prominently in most of them.

The Knicks have apparently inquired about both Jason Kidd and Vince Carter, though a deal between the cross-river rivals is highly unlikely. Another team allegedly interested in Carter is the Orlando Magic.

Meanwhile, the fate of Jason Kidd remains a hot topic, as seemingly every west coast team appears interested in the All-Star point guard. Even the Phoenix Suns have gotten in on the bidding, despite the presence of back-to-back MVP Steve Nash in the backcourt. Presumably, Phoenix would be looking to block a rival from acquiring Kidd more than anything else.

Another point guard that could be on the move is Sacramento’s Mike Bibby, whom the Cavaliers are allegedly pursuing aggressively.

Memphis’ Pau Gasol has been rumored to be available for quite some time with the Bulls, Warriors, Celts, and Mavs all expressing interest. Of that group, Chicago seems to be the most aggressive suitor for Gasol’s services, however sources say that a deal does not appear imminent.

And naturally no trading deadline could pass without the name of Minnesota’s Kevin Garnett popping up. As always, the Timberwolves would probably best be served by trading the All-Star and entering a rebuilding mode, as the Nets seem inclined to do. However, Minnesota will ask for a king’s ransom in return, and an opt-out clause in KG’s contract could further complicate matters.
