Not that college basketball doesn’t have enough player turnover—especially in this transfer-laden offseason—but one thing that would really shake up the roster dynamics would be the addition of trades. If coaches could move their surplus players to fill needs instead of redshirting them or leaving them trapped on the bench, all sorts of intriguing scenarios would open up for teams and fans alike.

Read on for a look at one place Dawkins might be dealt, along with nine other hypothetical arrangements that would benefit both sides if trades were an option in the college game.
