Final-Touch Trades for the NBA's Contenders

The latest three-way trade between the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors helped two title contenders shore up some serious needs.

Miami was able to ship out the dead-weight salary of Joel Anthony in return for Toney Douglas, a player that could potentially be a great fit as a 3-and-D guard in Miami's banged-up backcourt.

Golden State turned Douglas into Jordan Crawford. He's a much more capable offensive player who should be able to spark a bench unit that's struggled mightily to score the ball.

With that deal, the Warriors and Heat may have put the finishing touches on their rosters for what they hope will be long playoff runs.

Will the other title contenders in the league follow suit and add another piece to their puzzles? Let's take a look at potential deals that would help tune up each contender for the playoffs.
