The 2014 NBA trade deadline could see some serious shake-ups leaguewide, but only if teams are willing to look at their top assets as valuable bargaining chips.
Every team has something to offer, but not every general manager has the same goal in mind. Some are pushing for positioning in the playoffs, while others are simply building toward the future.
When looking at each squad's best trade asset, consider two key factors: Would the team realistically trade the player, and what would the value of that player be with the deadline approaching?
Of course, you can look at the Miami Heat and say that LeBron James is their best asset, but to claim that they would rid themselves of the four-time MVP is ludicrous and won't be discussed.
Not every team will look to deal its best asset, but that won't stop others from shopping with the deadline rapidly approaching.
