The trade deadline is less than two hours away, and it's been relatively quiet. With Dwight Howard officially waiving his opt-out clause for the 2012-2013 season, the biggest prize on the market is suddenly unavailable.
After making what could end up being the biggest trade of the season, the Bucks have been relatively quiet. John Hammond indicated at the introductory press conference for Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh that he anticipated Milwaukee was done dealing this deadline. That came after Gery Woelfel tweeted that the Bucks were still exploring another deal, potentially involving Luc Mbah a Moute and Shaun Livingston. We'll update this story as more information becomes available.
UPDATE: According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Bucks made a push to acquire Carl Landry from the Hornets but couldn't get the deal done before the 3:00 PM EST deadline.
