February 13, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The NBA trade rumors leading up to the 2014 deadline continue flying.

Let’s check out the latest ones:

New York Knicks

Many different players on the roster have been mentioned in trades–now Metta World Peace can be added to that list.

The New York Post reports that World Peace, along with Beno Udrih, are on the trading block. Udrih has barely played recently and World Peace is buried on the bench. Udrih could go to the Wizards for Glen Rice Jr. or a second-round draft pick, while the Raptors have expressed interest in World Peace during Kyle Lowry talks.

Orlando Magic

The Magic are willing to give up all or at least one of the following players: Arron Afflalo, Jameer Nelson, and Glen Davis.

However, Chris Ford of ESPN reported that the Magic would need a strong offer for Afflalo since they are fond of him. “Nelson and Davis they’d give away,” he said.

Portland Trail Blazers

The Blazers targeted Spencer Hawes of the 76ers back in December and could still be looking at him, according to Jake Fischer of the Boston Globe (via Twitter). The news comes as Joel Freeland got hurt, which opened up a spot for Hawes.

Hawes will be a free agent so he could be gotten relatively cheap.

Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks are eyeing Eric Gordon of the Pelicans, according to Gary Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

He said via Twitter that Bucks officials will be “closely scrutinizing” Gordon.

Dallas Mavericks

Many of the players on the team can’t be traded because they’re pretty intertwined, reported the Dallas Morning News.

“Take away Marion and the defensive system might fall apart. Take away Dalembert and the pick-setting and defense are impacted. Take away Calderon or Harris and things get dicey at the point. It’s all a puzzle and the pieces right now fit pretty good,” it reported. The one guy on the block is likely Wayne Ellington.

Boston Celtics

Lots of rumors have been flying about the Celtics looking to deal Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass.

But Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report said on Twitter that he’s hearing the Celtics are not likely to trade Green, with the mindset that they want to build around him, Rondo, and Jared Sullinger.
