Just hours before the 2023 NBA trade deadline, a few teams are looking to make trades that will get them into the playoff picture. The Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks are at the center of the latest rumors, potentially looking to acquire impactful young players.

The Warriors and Detroit Pistons are involved in trade discussions about forward Saddiq Bey Jake Fischer of Yahoo sports reports. The Knicks have offered multiple draft picks to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for OG Anunoby, according to The Action Network's Matt Moore.

The Warriors are the No. 9 seed in the Western Conference. If the regular season ended on the day of the trade deadline, Golden State would need to win two straight play-in tournament games in order to clinch a playoff spot. The Warriors are 1.5 games behind the Los Angeles Clippers, which have the No. 6 seed and the final spot in the latest playoff picture.

The defending champs might need to upgrade the roster in order to get into the top six in the West. Stephen Curry is expected to miss several weeks with a leg injury.

Former No. 2 overall draft pick James Wiseman would likely be sent to the Pistons in exchange for Bey. Wiseman has only played 60 career games since being drafted six years ago. Bey is averaging 15.0 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in his third NBA season.

Anunoby has been linked to the Knicks, among several teams. The New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies reportedly also have interest in the Raptors forward. The Knicks have reportedly been in contact with the Raptors about Anunoby since earlier this season.

There's been speculation that it could take three first-round picks for Toronto to part with Anunoby. The forward is averaging 16.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game while playing above-average defense.

On Wednesday, the Knicks acquired Josh Hart from the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Knicks are the Eastern Conference's No. 7 seed with a real chance to get into the playoff picture. New York is only a half-game behind the No. 6 seed Miami Heat. The No. 5 seed Brooklyn Nets are three games ahead of the Knicks but likely to fall down the standings after trading Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The No. 8 seed Atlanta Hawks trail the Knicks by 2.5 games in the standings.
