When is the 2020-21 NBA trade deadline?

In recent history, the league's mid-season trade deadline was the Thursday just after the All-Star Weekend, but in 2017, the NBA announced that future deadlines would be the Thursday 10 days prior to the NBA All-Star Game. Here's an excerpt from that official release

"With the new placement of the trade deadline, teams will be able to settle their rosters before the All-Star break and avoid the disruptions that result from players joining new teams just as practices and games are beginning to resume following the All-Star break"

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted and altered nearly every traditional date associated with the NBA's 2020-21 season calendar and the mid-season trade deadline is no different.

When is the 2020-21 NBA trade deadline?

Per the 'Key Dates' announced by the league, the 2020-21 trade deadline is Thursday, March 25. Barring any date changes, that would be a couple of weeks after the 'scheduled' second half of the 2020-21 season begins on March 11. The deadline time has not yet been specified, but it years past, it has been 3 p.m. ET.
