Ranking the Likelihood of Top NBA Stars on the Move This Season
John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Spo

On a year-to-year basis, blockbuster trades keep NBA fans on their toes. But is there a strong likelihood that top NBA stars could be on the move at some point during the 2013-14 year?

At a moment’s notice, the entire landscape of the league can change in a blink when front offices strike a deal—like when the Brooklyn Nets acquired Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in a fire sale from the Boston Celtics. That prominent swap greatly improved the Nets’ chances at winning a title, while conceivably dropping the Celts out of the playoff picture.

Fans don’t always see such dramatic changes within the NBA, but the 2013-14 season should see plenty of marquee names in the rumor mill at one point or another.

Whether players are poor fits due to their play style, their contract situation or their overall standing in a team’s direction, sometimes the best move a franchise can make is moving on from a big name.

 

Note: Although players on this list are numbered for your convenience, they are not in any particular order.
