6 Teams Left with Unfinished Business After NBA Trade Deadline

The buildup to the 2016 NBA trade deadline was far more entertaining than the actual event, but the transaction period still proved valuable to a handful of teams.

The Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers all added frontcourt weapons for their playoff rotations. The Oklahoma City Thunder added a shooter and lowered their tax bill. The Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies grabbed draft picks for cheap.

For a handful of clubs, though, this deadline felt incomplete.

Some held off on moves they should have made and can't correct those missed opportunities until the offseason. A few have the means to acquire a big fish but have so far failed to reel one in. Others need to work the buyout market or sell some pieces over the summer to balance their rosters.

The excitement missing from this trade season could come soon for these six clubs with unfinished business.
