Provided the league and players get a new CBA in place, we could see several huge NBA trades this offseason.
The Los Angeles Lakers could be making a big push for Dwight Howard and may be willing to give up two members of the Lamar Odom-Pau Gasol-Andrew Bynum trio in order to get Orlando's center.
The New York Knicks may look to use Landry Fields and Chauncey Billups' expiring contract to land either Chris Paul or Tony Parker.
Adding either one of those point guards to the core of Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire could turn the Knicks into real contenders.
The Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers may re-open old negotiations on a straight swap of Monta Ellis and Andre Iguodala.
Steve Nash's career is winding down, and the Suns desperately need to kick off a total rebuilding effort. Moving Nash would benefit the team and the player.
Those are just a few of the rumors we're already hearing.
Ray Allen, Andrea Bargnani, Antawn Jamison, Richard Hamilton, Danny Granger, Devin Harris, Raymond Felton, Rudy Gay and several others may be on the move as well.
