NBA trade deadline is coming up in February 2020 and teams are gearing up to upgrade their roster or change it completely for a major rebuild. The teams which have a good shot at the title will be ready to pay for inform players while their owners would be open to trade them. Here are the rumored trades and NBA deals roundup for Lonzo Ball, JJ Redick and Andre Iguodala before the February 2020 deadline.
Lonzo Ball will be Available in 2020 Trade Deadline
Lonzo Ball won’t stay in the New Orleans Pelicans as the team are ready for a major rebuild due to a 7-23 record. The only reason Lonzo became a part of the Pelicans roster was because he was a part of the big exchange deal where Anthony Davis was sent to the Lakers.
Lonzo Ball is shooting 37% from the field, 33% from 3, 56% on FT.

While Lonzo Ball playing at the guard position has only shot 38 percent and have a minus 10.3 net rating, he just turned 22 and has still a lot of potential. The Pelicans would keep Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball will be available for the NBA trade deadline ending on February 6, 2020.
JJ Redick is in High Demands
JJ Redick is doing well but doesn’t have an exact spot in the Pelicans squad as Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram won’t be moved anytime soon. The Pelicans are having JJ Redick at a very affordable deal for two years, $13.5 million and could easily get a higher return from him. There are a lot of NBA teams interested in Redick and Dallas Mavericks could make an offer for the veteran.
Grizzlies stuck on Andre Iguodala Deal
Andre Iguodala is not playing for the Memphis Grizzlies right now and three of the top teams including Lakers, Clippers and Rockets are interesting in him. However, the Grizzlies don’t want a buyout and the teams mentioned above can hardly afford the veteran MVP.

It is possible for a very few teams to pay the full part of his salary and Mavericks being one of them has shown no interest to date. Lakers, Clippers and Rockets are hoping that no one signs him before the February trade deadline and the Grizzlies will be stuck with Andre Iguodala and forced to buy out his contract.
