Players Most Likely to Hit Trading Block After 2014 NBA Draft
USA TODAY Sports

There's typically a whole lot of moving and shaking on draft day, but don't discount the aftershocks around the NBA once the draft is complete. With talented young rookies hitting rosters everywhere, players that might not have been so readily available before could be trade bait all the way.

That happens for a few reasons. The first is usually to clear playing time for the young draft pick, but the second is often to clear cap space in free agency. Typically, when both those needs line up, trades can go down.
