With the 2011 NBA draft just one day away, whispers of potential trades are becoming more and more serious. Because so many general managers are on the hot seat right now, many of them don't have the luxury of drafting a young talent and letting him develop or picking a European prospect and stashing him for a few years.
With so many lottery-bound teams looking for an instant upgrade, you can expect a lot of teams swinging for the fences.
The next five slides are trades that have been reported within the last 48 hours or trades that have been discussed for some time now that continue to heat up.
Whether or not any of these trades materialize, I expect many teams to trade out of this year's draft for picks in next year's draft, which is believed to be much deeper.
