Beware the 'Ides of March'.
In other words, watch out for the NBA trade deadline that's slowly creeping up on us. It's set for March 15th, which leaves NBA teams a little more than two weeks to prepare a deal that's either going to make or break the rest of their 2011-12 season, playoff hopes and future prospects.
Dwight Howard is obviously at the center of these trade rumors despite the Orlando Magic organization being adamant about keeping the All-Star. Despite several requests to be dealt, his team doesn't seem ready to relinquish him and could still re-sign him over the summer when he becomes a free agent.
Other big name players possibly on the move include Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Michael Beasley.
Included in this piece is each NBA team's most tradable player. By most tradable, we mean which player is the most likely to get traded as well as who's going to reap the most rewards for their former team if they do depart.
