5 Potential NBA Trade Scenarios to Shake Up the League
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

On the NBA trade front, there's been a whole lot of smoke without any fire this year. That's likely to change as the trade deadline approaches and the rumors start to turn into real transactions, but we're impatient around here.

So we've come up with five trade scenarios to really shake up the league.

All of our proposed deals work under the salary cap rules and have been vetted by ESPN's omnipotent Trade Machine, so keep in mind that every exchange we're proposing could actually happen. As for the overall plausibility of these deals, there's definitely a defensible reason for all of the hypothetical parties to agree to the terms we've come up with, but know that we're not pussyfooting around.

These are bold moves.

We've got all of the big names attached to the latest rumors, like Rudy Gay, Pau Gasol and Josh Smith. We've also done some digging to find players that haven't hit the news cycle just yet, but are highly likely to be on the move before March rolls around.

Buckle up, because we're going to send shock waves through the NBA with five potential blockbuster deals.
