With the calendar turning to June, we continue to get closer towards the 2024 season for the NY Giants and we continue to get a closer look at what the roster will look like when they end training camp and get prepared for Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Once training camp starts next month, it’s up to Brian Daboll and his staff, plus GM Joe Schoen, to navigate through the 90 players who are at camp and get down to the final 53 players that will be on the main roster to start the year.

With minicamp in full swing, some players are turning heads, while others will be ready to fight for a roster spot this summer. However, could Schoen opt to trade away some talent? Here's a look at four players who could end up being trade targets for other teams sooner rather than later:

4. Boogie Basham

A year ago during training camp, the Giants made the trade with the Buffalo Bills to acquire Boogie Basham in a move that many thought would help with the pass-rush. Before 2023, Basham had 4.5 sacks in his two seasons with the Bills, so the expectation was that he would make somewhat of an impact for the Giants up front.

Yet, it was not to be for Basham, as he didn’t record a single sack in 2023 for the Giants in the 13 games he appeared in. Most of the Giants pass-rush came from Kayvon Thibodeaux and Dexter Lawrence, which clearly wasn’t enough for the Giants and it was why NY ended up making the deal to acquire Brian Burns to start the offseason.

Basham has one year left on his current deal and trading him would actually give the team about $1.4 million back in cap space. The Giants still have Azeez Ojulari on the team, who could also be moved, but Ojulari has proven to have more upside if he’s healthy, so he might be the player of these two to hang onto, especially for depth behind Thibodeaux and Burns.
