Steve Dykes-US PRESSWIRE

Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports briefly mentions Portland Trail Blazers forward/center J.J. Hickson as a possible candidate to be traded in advance of the Feb. 21 trade deadline.

A source said to keep an eye on forward J.J. Hickson, whose Bird Rights allow teams to go over the salary cap to re-sign him, as possible trade bait.

To clarify: as Storyteller noted on Twitter back in November 2012, Hickson would lose his Bird Rights if traded.
