A look at five players the Thunder could potentially be interested in acquiring at the trading deadline.

 Gary Neal, Milwaukee, shooting guard

Age: 29

2013-14 stats: 10.2 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 1.6 apg, 36.4 3PT%, 29 games played.

Contract status: Two years, $6.5 million

Comment: After signing with the Bucks in the offseason, Neal is no longer in the plans in Milwaukee. He fell out of the rotation in mid-December and has been in and out ever since. He doesn't do defense, but he's a career 39.4 percent shooter from 3-point range. The only problem is his contract could be a tad too pricey for OKC to stay under the tax this season.

Anthony Morrow, New Orleans, shooting guard

Age: 28

2013-14 stats: 6.3 ppg, 1.3 rpg, 0.5 apg, 48.0 3PT%.

Contract status: One year $1 million, with a $1.1 million player option for 2014-15.

Comment: Morrow is the league's leading 3-point shooter among players with at least 75 attempts. Yet the Pelicans reportedly are making him available for a draft pick. He might be the ideal situational shooter the Thunder needs.
