The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and a few teams that were originally expected to deal decided instead to stay put.
While it's always difficult to get a sense of what a team tried to do, or what deals were close that failed at the last moment, at the end of the day all we have to work with are the actual results.

Some squads passed up golden opportunities to get better, while others failed to fix obvious roster flaws or tear it down and just start over.
Let's take a look at the top five teams that should have found a way to do something at the deadline.
