The 2013-14 NBA season has nearly hit the halfway point, and with the trade deadline approximately one month away, every team has an area where it can improve.

For some, trade targets are obvious. The Houston Rockets, for instance, would love to add Paul Millsap to the roster, and the season-ending injury to Al Horford could be the leverage they need to make it happen.

However, all deals have at least two sides to accommodate, which means the Atlanta Hawks could have a very different trade partner in mind.
