Default Why does teams wait for the deadline to do trades?

Quote:
The NBA’s trade deadline remains more than a month away, but rumors have begun to intensify with franchise cornerstones like Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins, Zach Randolph and Rajon Rondo showing up in reports across the league.

While speculation in the media has increased, there hasn’t been a ton of substantive talk among NBA teams at this point. After a conversation with a league executive on Wednesday, the takeaway was that we may not see any significant moves for a few weeks.

“There hasn’t really been a lot of talk going around,” the executive said. “There is general chatter, but nothing serious. A lot of teams are trying to figure out what is going on with Memphis and all the names that have been thrown around.”

There will undoubtedly be more players surfacing in trade rumors as the Feb. 21 deadline approaches, but the odds of a significant trade happening in January remain long.

“This is such a deadline-driven league,” the source said.

Same reason you don't stop a timed auction mid-way, you hope someone will come up with a better offer.

Because for deals involving expiring contracts... the team absorbing the cost wants to pay the least amount of money on the deal

You can get better value at the deadline. Teams that are out of it are looking to reshuffle, and contending teams looking for that last piece to the puzzle may be inclined to give a little more.

Pretty much this

Many teams want to tank too and to clear space for the summer.

longer you hold on to a player, the higher the possibility other teams get interested, which as a result drives up the asking price and starts a bidding war.
