The NBA trade deadline is Thursday afternoon, meaning Wednesday night could be the last time some guys suit up for their current teams. Although, if a trade is close players often will be benched just to ensure they don’t get injured and scuttle any possible deal. Something to keep in mind when wagering on Wednesday’s NBA betting action.

The biggest name potentially on the move by Thursday is New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis. He’s a Chicago native but won’t suit up in the Windy City on Wednesday against the Bulls as Davis remains out with a finger injury. Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday also could be dealt by Thursday as the team figures to reboot with Davis demanding out.
The Bulls have dropped the past three in this series, including 107-98 in the Big Easy on November 7 as Davis had 32 points and 15 rebounds. Chicago would trade anyone on its team other than Lauri Markkanen and injured rookie Wendell Carter Jr. The Pelicans are 1-5 ATS in the past six meetings, and Wednesday’s game opened as a pick’em on the odds.
