Best Potential Trade Packages and Landing Spots for David Lee
USA TODAY Sports

If you read tea leaves, the proverbial writing on the wall or newspapers, you're aware of the momentum building behind a potential blockbuster trade featuring Golden State Warriors forward David Lee.

Understanding why Lee might be moved is the easy part: He's overpaid, ownership is eager to make a splash after hiring a new and untested coach, the Warriors need someone to space the floor, a second star is necessary to elevate the Dubs to real "contender" status—fair reasons, all.

Plus, there's the fact that Lee may not be all that content in Golden State.

Per Eric Byrnes of KNBR 680 in San Francisco (via BayAreaSportsGuy.com), Lee told a source that 2013-14 "was the most miserable basketball season that he had endured."

Kevin Love is looking to escape his current team. Carmelo Anthony could become available. The Warriors have an itchy trigger finger and a (reportedly) dissatisfied star.

You do the math.

Where might Lee end up? And what kind of return could Golden State expect in a franchise-altering deal?

Forget the tea leaves; we can figure those things out with equal parts speculation, ESPN Trade Machine tinkering and deduction.

Here we go.
