The NBA Trade Deadline is Thursday at 2:00 p.m. CT. Last year, the Thunder turned Reggie Jackson, Kendrick Perkins and Grant Jerrett into Enes Kanter, Kyle Singler, D.J. Augustin and Steve Novak at the deadline. It wasn’t enough to push OKC into the playoffs but it set up a 2015-16 team that is 40-14 coming out of the All-Star break.

It doesn't look likely the Thunder will make any big moves this season, but general manager Sam Presti has been known to pull the trigger when least expected. Keep up to date on the latest trades and rumors here.

Here’s who’s been traded so far:

Orlando trades forward Tobias Harris to Detroit for guard Brandon Jennings and forward Ersan Ilyasova.

Memphis trades guard Courtney Lee to Charlotte in a three-way-trade with Miami. Grizzlies acquired guard P.J. Hairston, forward Chris Anderson, two Charlotte second-round picks and two Miami second-round picks. The Heat get guard Brian Roberts.

Houston trades forward Donatas Motiejunas and guard Marcus Thornton to Detroit for center Joel Anthony and the Pistons' 2016 first round pick.

And here are some of the most interesting trade rumors still out there:

Blake Griffin – The Magic reportedly offered starting center Nikola Vucevic and dunk contest runner-up Aaron Gordon to the Clippers for Griffin. The offer was denied. The Celtics and Nuggets are also looking into a possible Griffin trade.

Ricky Rubio – The Bucks and Knicks are reportedly interested in the Spanish point guard. Rubio is signed through 2018 but has been put on the trade block by the T-Wolves.

Al Horford – One of the most pivotal post players on the block this Deadline, Horford has been mentioned in talks with the Celtics among other teams.

Jeff Teague – Atlanta is willing to deal its starting point guard for significant return due to the emergence of backup Dennis Schroder. The Knicks continue to look for point guard help but what would they part with in the trade? Certainly not Carmelo or Porzingis and beyond those two, who else would Atlanta want?

Dwight Howard – Howard has been rumored in discussions between the Rockets and Hornets and also the Heat.

Rudy Gay – It seems like Gay is on the trade block every year. His $12.4m salary makes him a little tricky to move though. Rumored to Chicago in a packaged deal with Ben McLemore.

Pau Gasol – Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls are aggressively shopping forward/center Pau Gasol. Gasol could become a free agent this summer if he opts out of his contract.

Ryan Anderson – Wojnarowski also reports the Pelicans are looking to deal forward Ryan Anderson, who will be a free agent after the season and likely won't be resigned in New Orleans.
