With the 2012 NBA draft quickly approaching, many teams will be scrambling to trade up to secure a better player than they can get with the pick they currently own.
A trade like this could be made for many reasons.
Some teams just want to move up a few spots to grab a player they aren’t positive will fall to them, like the Rockets did this year when they moved up from No. 14 to No. 12.
Other teams will be trying to make a huge splash to guarantee them a much better talent than they could have originally taken, like the Bobcats did last year when they moved up from No. 19 to No. 7.
Either way, you can guarantee there will be tons of action that goes down on draft night with players being shipped from one team to another before they even have a chance to step on the court.
Here are four teams that are rumored to be trying to trade up in the 2012 NBA draft.
