The Timberwolves aside, when do you expect the trades to start before this years deadline? Will one trade trigger an avalanche of others? Is it possible that a big deal, like Dwight Howard needs to happen to get things started? Are the Lakers the key factor in starting a cycle of deals? Will all teams wait till the last day? Have most of the speculations around trade talk, been just that and very little will happen? What is the usual standard operating procedure for NBA trades leading up to the deadline?
