No-Brainer Trade Proposals to Improve NBA Title Contenders
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Here's the thing about NBA title contenders: They generally don't need a whole lot of help. If they had glaring weaknesses, it'd be hard to call them contenders in the first place.

Still, no team is perfect.

In looking around the league at the current crop of ring-chasing hopefuls, there's at least one area in which each elite club could use a little help. Some of the deals to get that help will be big ones, but in most cases, they'll feature smaller changes and incremental improvements.

It won't take much to push any of these teams over the top, but finding realistic deals that fit under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement can be tricky.

Every proposal here is designed to benefit the contending team while still giving the "non-contender" enough of a return to make the exchange a plausible one.

Shuffle up and deal.
