With the 2013 NBA trade deadline approaching, several front offices need to be decisive and dump salary for the betterment of their respective franchises.
February 21st marks the swap cutoff, and almost every team will be involved in trade talks. But certain teams should place salary-shedding as a top priority.
Some of those squads should get rid of bad contracts simply to expedite the team's long-term financial health. Other clubs must look to lose contracts and pick up affordable 2013 playoff pieces simultaneously.
In today's era of overspending, there are a slew of bad contracts out there. Not all of them necessitate a trade in February, and not all of them are movable even if a trade was needed.
So which franchises can and should dump salary?
