The NBA trade deadline is Thursday.

Terry, 36, averages 4.5 points in 16 minutes per game this season.
Both teams entered the All-Star break fighting to secure playoff positions. Brooklyn, at 24-27, is currently the No. 7 seed. Cleveland, which has won four in a row, is three games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Nets, eager to add a proven ballhandler and backcourt scorer to their bench rotation, are willing to take on the two remaining guaranteed seasons worth in excess of $12 million left on Jack’s contract despite the luxury-tax implications.
But it’s believed that the Cavs, if they decided to go ahead with such a move, would try to find a third team to absorb Terry’s contract.
