Who will be the biggest buyers of the 2013-14 NBA trade season? You might think the list is limited to the league's elite, but in fact, the opposite is probably true.
Whether it be financial limitations (Memphis Grizzlies, Chicago Bulls), a lack of movable assets (Brooklyn Nets), limited needs to fill (Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat) or the desire to add a final piece only at a huge discount (Oklahoma City Thunder), sometimes the league's elite are actually the least likely to make a trade.
More often, it's the teams who need to make the biggest leap in status that are the buyers come deadline time.
Whether it's about making a push to secure a playoff spot or going from a good team to a great team, these buyers should all share the same desire to get to the next level this season.
