The tip-off for the 2022-23 NBA Season is getting closer. In fact, most of the NBA franchises have their roster and contracts already signed off. That's why most of them have already started their trainning sessions for a full 82-game schedule to fight for a spot in the NBA Playoffs.

However, there are teams who are still looking for a trade in oder to close out their roster for the upcoming season. For example, the Los Angeles Lakers are still trying to make the Russell Westbrook trade happen at almost any cost. Another could be a last-minute trade for Jae Crowder from the Phoenix Suns to anyone that could afford his massive contract. 

Although, there isn't much time, as the NBA Preseason games are already scheduled to tip off on the upcoming first weeks of October. As the time clock is ticking down, there are four time who will tip-off another regular season, find out which teams are.
