The Utah Jazz are likely to make a major move or three come Thursday, the last day the NBA allows teams to make trades with one another. The league office will shut down the ability for teams to trade players and picks after 3:00 PM ET, meaning that the Jazz and the other 29 NBA teams are in the final hours to upgrade their roster or cash in on key players.

The Jazz have already dipped their toe in the water, trading away Simone Fontecchio for a second-round pick, Kevin Knox, and the player rights to Gabriele Procida, Fontecchoi's teammate from the Italian FIBA National Team. It was a rather shocking move, not only because they got back a measly second-round pick, but because they have no one to really replace him. Many are assuming Taylor Hendrick gets called up, but that's anyone's guess now.

The Jazz may be in the mood to trade more players too, and we're going to look at those most likely to be moved.

Honorable Mention - Talen Horton-Tucker

We're not including Talen Horton-Tucker in the following section because of how irrelevant he's been for most of the season. It may sound harsh but he's barely played in the last few months, and he's just really a moveable contract at this point. It's unlikely the team holds onto him heading into the deadline, as it's not very often you have a contract you can easily ship out. Here's hoping that they get more for him than they did Fontecchio.
