The NBA lockout has left basketball fans starved for anything related to the game. Since no official league business can take place right now, most of the news that has come out has to do with NBA superstars making plans to play overseas—not exactly a promising sign that the league's labor dispute will end any time soon.

In order to give you a little break from all of that, I've decided to rank the 10 most interesting trades that could possibly happen once the lockout finally ends.
