As the trade deadline approaches, some rumors are finally coming to fruition while players find themselves in new homes.

Just yesterday, Monta Ellis and Andrew Bogut exchanged destinations, as they joined a new team for the first time in their career.

Even as we hear about current rumors from ESPN Insiders or through Twitter, there still are many trade rumors that we might never hear.

That's the beauty of the trading season. Sometimes, we are shocked when we see a trade occur.

With that in mind, here are the top five trade assets left on the market. I base my decisions on three factors: the player's play on the court, his contract and the impact he can make on a new team.

Each player's skill level is graded on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, while the contract and impact are graded on a scale of 1-5. The player with the higher skill-level rating is always ranked higher if there is a tie.
