With the NBA lockout gone like the wind, teams will finally be able to have open trade discussions as they search for the best deals they can find for the player they have on the block.

Several of the league's brightest young stars just happen to be on the block as they search for the place where they can cement themselves in NBA lore. However, that doesn't come easy and they'll be forced to prove themselves to their new teammates if they find themselves in a new area code.
