Even though the non-waiver trade deadline passed earlier this week, general managers are still busy finding ways to improve their chances in their respective playoff races. However, making a move after the July 31 deadline is much more complicated with the added hurdle of players clearing waivers.

This is a list of the seven biggest trades made after the non-waiver trade deadline.
