NBA Trade Rumors: Realistic Trade Targets for Every Team In The NBA

    The NBA trade deadline is less than a month away, and with all the speculation and trade rumors that have been flying around the past couple weeks, a number of deals are likely to get done sooner than later.

    We have heard names like Richard Hamilton, Andre Iguodala and of course, Carmelo Anthony be used in recent trade talks. So now the question remains, will these players get dealt before the trade deadline, and if yes, where will they end up?

    Let's break this down by taking an inside look at all 30 NBA teams and come up with some realistic trade targets that these teams will be going after within the next month.

Cleveland Cavaliers

1 of 30

    Top Trade Target: Gerald Wallace

    Another Potential Trade Target: Andre Iguodala

    The Cavaliers are an awful basketball team right now and truly are desperate for anyone to step in and help fill a scoring void that has become more evident now then ever.

    Gerald Wallace has been a hot name in trade rumors, and he would make a nice fit on this team. The only problem here is that the Bobcats are most likely going to ask for a first round pick in return for Wallace. If the Cavs keep on pace, that could be the top pick in the draft in 2011. Is Gerald Wallace really worth the top pick in the NBA draft?


    Andre Iguodala has been another guy who has had his name floating around in trade talks. He had such a good showing for Team USA this past summer, but he has had one of the worst years of his career thus far this season. Bringing in a guy that's averaging just over 14 points per game isn't worth any type of first round draft pick.

    The odds are that the Cavs will find a way to get one of these deals done. Perhaps a future first round pick, not 2011, will be used to complete a deal here.

Minnesota Timberwolves

    Top Trade Target: O.J. Mayo

    It was reported earlier this month that the Wolves were going to try and make an effort to acquire Mayo from the Grizzlies. Mayo is coming off the bench now in Memphis and has made it clear that he is ready to leave and get a clean start somewhere.

    The Wolves are filled with mediocre players, but need a complementary piece to Kevin Love, who is becoming a rising star in the NBA. Guys like Michael Beasley and Wesley Johnson are good, but by not any means, great scorers.

    Adding a guy like Mayo would give them a guard that could score and someone who could play alongside with the many point guards that Minnesota has on its roster.

Sacramento Kings

3 of 30

    ATLANTA, GA - DECEMBER 11:  Jeff Teague #0 of the Atlanta Hawks against A.J. Price #12 of the Indiana Pacers at Philips Arena on December 11, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and/or using
    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Jeff Teague

    The Sacramento Kings are not in any type of position right now to make a big trade. They are one of the worst teams in the NBA, which is not an attractive quality for some of the top name trade targets, and they have money invested in their best young players, Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins.

    The idea here is that if the Kings were to make a deal, they are in need of a lot of pieces, but certainly a backup point guard is on that list. Beno Udrih has exceeded expectations this season and has been fantastic for the Kings in the point guard role, but they don't have much to offer after him at the point guard position.

    One deal that was being discussed earlier this season was that the Kings could send Jason Thompson to the Atlanta Hawks for Jeff Teague. This seems like it could be a deal that could benefit both teams, especially after how much Thompson's playing time has gone down in the past couple of weeks.

    If the Kings are going to get a deal done, it is going to be small, and it very well could involve guys like Thompson and Teague.

New Jersey Nets

    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Danny Granger

    Now that the Carmelo Anthony trade talk has finally come to an end, the Nets are looking for other top options around the NBA. One guy who catches their eye is Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger.

    Granger is one of the top scorers in the league and the Net's need to add scoring to their roster. New Jersey has a lot of nice pieces that they could put together to lure the Pacers into getting a deal done here. The Nets have a big decision to make soon though of if they want to make a big splash in the trade market or wait for free agency and the draft to come.

Toronto Raptors

    CHARLOTTE, NC - MARCH 16:  Pops Mensah-Bonsu #44 of the Toronto Raptors tries to block Boris Diaw #32 of the Charlotte Bobcats during their game at Time Warner Cable Arena on March 16, 2009 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly ackno
    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Boris Diaw

    The Raptors are one of those teams that really do not have much to offer. They're roster is pretty depleted, and most of their talent is in their youth with players like Andrea Bargani and DeMar DeRozan.

    They do need to get bigger down low, and therefor a player with good size like Diaw might be a good fit here. Earlier this past summer, the Raptors and Bobcats nearly made a deal that would've sent Diaw to Toronto and point guard Jose Calderon back to Charlotte. That deal never went through, but Diaw has remained on the Raptors radar.

Washington Wizards

6 of 30

    CHARLOTTE, NC - JANUARY 08:  Andray Blatche #7 of the Washington Wizards collides with Stephen Jackson #1 of the Charlotte Bobcats during their game at Time Warner Cable Arena on January 8, 2011 in Charlotte, North Carolina. NOTE TO USER: User expressly a
    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Gerald Wallace

    It has been reported that the Wizards' Andry Blatche and JaVale McGee got into an altercation at a nightclub, and now the team might be looking to ship one of them in a trade, most likely Blatche.

    Charlotte is a team that has been openly shopping Wallace, but are asking for something valuable in return. Well, Blatche is the Wizards leading scorer and is proving to be a force in the NBA, so this deal should make perfect sense.

    By doing this, the Bobcats can start their rebuilding process by dumping off Wallace's salary, and the Wizards can get a guy that can provide scoring and rebounding, something that they are clearly desperate for at this point in time.

Detroit Pistons

7 of 30

    Jeff Gross/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Chris Kaman

    The Pistons might be in more need for a big-man than any other team in the NBA. They do not have a player taller than 6'10" on their roster, and start a center who is well past his prime in Ben Wallace.

    They have been targeting Chris Kaman for some time now, and this year seems like the ideal time to add him to their roster. Kaman has seemingly been replaced by DeAndre Jordan in the Clippers rotation, and his playing time has continued to decrease over the past couple of weeks.

    The Pistons need a big man. The Clippers are looking to shop Kaman. He played his college ball at Central Michigan and would be able to return home. Seems like a perfect fit to me.

Milwaukee Bucks

    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Nene

    The Milwaukee Bucks are hands-down the most underachieving team in the NBA this season. And the thing that makes it most difficult is that it is hard to point out where exactly they need help.

    With a roster filled with talented players like Brandon Jennings, Andrew Bogut and Corey Maggette, it doesn't seem like there should be too many weaknesses. Perhaps one position that comes to mind that the Bucks need help with is finding another big man down low to complement Bogut.

    Drew Gooden and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute are descent players, but maybe not starter quality in the NBA. While I don't think it is going to happen, it wouldn't suprise me if the Bucks contacted the Nuggets about acquring a guy like Nene, who has said that he's not pleased with the current state of the Denver Nuggets.

L.A. Clippers

    CHARLOTTE, NC - FEBRUARY 09:  Baron Davis #1 of the Los Angeles Clippers tries to steal the ball from D.J. Augustin #14 of the Charlotte Bobcats during their game at Time Warner Cable Arena on February 9, 2009 in Charlotte, North Carolina. NOTE TO USER: U
    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: D.J. Augustin

    The Clippers have been open to the idea of trading point guard Baron Davis and one of the top names that have come about in these trade rumors is Charlotte guard D.J. Augustin.

    The Clippers are riding high with this youth movement they have right now. With guys like Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon blossoming in their young NBA careers, why not bring in another young player to join the group?

    The current trade rumor here is that the Bobcats would send Augustin, DeSagana Diop and Matt Carroll to the Clippers in return for Davis.

Indiana Pacers

    Top Trade Target: Anthony Randolph

    Indiana Pacers' president of basketball operations, Larry Bird has mentioned that if the right offer came about, he would consider trading the Pacers first round pick to get an impact player.

    It is no secret that the Pacers are one of the teams looking to strike a deal that would land them the Knicks' Anthony Randolph. New York has made it clear that they would need a first round pick in return, so this could make a perfect deal.

Charlotte Bobcats

    CHARLOTTE, NC - JANUARY 12:  Teammates Gerald Wallace #3 and Stephen Jackson #1 of the Charlotte Bobcats react during their 96-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls at Time Warner Cable Arena on January 12, 2011 in Charlotte, North Carolina. NOTE TO USER: Use
    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: NBA Draft Lottery Pick

    The Bobcats have been one of the most active teams in trade talks this winter and all signs point to them making some kind of deal before the deadline hits. Guys like Gerald Wallace, Stephen Jackson and D.J. Augustin have all been thrown into the mix.

    Wallace has been the most talked about player being used in a trade, and Michael Jordan has made it clear that he wants nothing less than a first round, preferably lottery draft pick for his star forward.

    The Cavs seem like one of the most likely teams to do this deal, and that means that they will have to give away a draft pick, which if it's this years, very well could be the top pick in the draft. We shall wait and see.

Golden State Warriors

    LOS ANGELES - FEBRUARY 26:  Andre Igoudala #9 of the Philadelphia 76ers reacts during a game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on February 26, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by do
    Jeff Gross/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Andre Iguodala

    The Warriors are a team that is loaded with talent, which makes fans scratch their heads at why they continue to be so bad with so many good players. With two talented guards on their roster in Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry, the Warriors have come out and said that they will listen to offers about either of them.

    Golden State was trying to make their way into talks with Carmelo Anthony, but that is not going to happen. Therefor, they might shift their focuses to someone like Andre Iguodala. He is a scoring shooting guard/ small forward that can also defend, something that the Warriors struggle with on a yearly basis.

Philadelphia 76ers

    OAKLAND, CA - MARCH 30:  O.J. Mayo #32 of the Memphis Grizzlies drives against the Golden State Warriors during an NBA game on March 30, 2009 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading
    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: O.J. Mayo

    The 76ers have been extremely active in trade talks as of late, flirting with names like Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala. But who could the 76ers get in a trade? More importantly, who do the 76ers want in a trade?

    Look no further then Memphis guard O.J. Mayo. He has been trying to get out of Memphis ever since he was moved out of the starting lineup and this would make sense. If the 76ers were to deal Mayo for Iguodala straight up, that would be a fair deal that would give each of these guys a fresh new start.

Phoenix Suns

    Nick Laham/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: First Round Draft Pick

    What happened to the Phoenix Suns?

    Well losing Amare Stoudemire certainly didn't help, but even so, they were still looked at to be a playoff contender heading into the season. Now, standing at 20-23, it might be time for the Suns to start over.

    When you look at the trade the Suns pulled off with the Orlando Magic, it looks like a rebuilding move.

    The Suns got Vince Carter, who they will likely go after the season, and they got rid of Hedo Turkoglu's horrible contract and while getting young role-players like Marcin Gortat and Mickael Pietrus.

    They should continue this rebuilding move and look for some draft picks that they can build around for the future.

Houston Rockets

    DENVER - NOVEMBER 11:  Carmelo Anthony #15 and Nene #31 of the Denver Nuggets and Derrick Caracter #45 of the Los Angeles Lakers vie for rebounding position at the Pepsi Center on November 11, 2010 in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets defeated the Lakers 118-
    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Nene

    Rumors have it that Houston is interested in making a splash in free agency, and that they are interested in going after Nene.

    This isn't to say that Nene would like to leave Denver for Houston, but he does not like the respect he's been getting in Denver and might be involved in some form of trade before the deadline.

    If the Rockets can get a player of Nene's caliber without parting ways with Kevin Martin, it would be a nice piece to add to the puzzle.

Memphis Grizzlies

    Ethan Miller/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Andre Iguodala

    Another Potential Trade Target: Stephen Jackson

    The Grizzlies have made it clear that they are willing to part ways with Mayo, and Mayo himself is ready to make that happen.

    Adding Andre Iguodala would be a great complement to Rudy Gay and Mike Conley. He can score, but his best asset would be his defense. This would be a nice fit for Memphis and it seems like Iguodala would fit perfectly into their starting lineup.

    If this deal does not happen, another popular name that has been involved in trade talks for O.J. Mayo is Charlotte's Stephen Jackson. The Grizzlies could move Mayo and a few other players to package a trade with a future draft pick and Jackson.

    Either way, Memphis has to decide if they are going to make a push to be a contender or are they just a  pretender. Adding either of these guys would certainly boost their chances at being a contender.

New York Knicks

    Top Trade Target: Carmelo Anthony

    As if this one wasn't a surprise. It really is starting to feel like it could be any day now that this deal could get done. Yes, the Bulls are a potential destination for Melo, but the guy has made it clear that he wants to play in New York, which has to make you believe that the Knicks will do whatever they can do make this trade happen.

    The key here is that the Knicks have to make a decision first on what to do with Anthony Randolph. If they can trade him for a first round pick and use that as trade bait with the Nuggets, then this deal should happen. If they can find a third team that Denver agrees to work with and somehow throw Randolph in a deal there, then this can happen.

    Carmelo Anthony wants to be in New York, and quite frankly, it has probably gotten to the point where people are so sick of hearing all these trade rumors, that they just want him to go there so it is all over with already.

Portland Trail Blazers

18 of 30

    EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - FEBRUARY 23:  Devin Harris #34 of the New Jersey Nets drives against Nicolas Batum #88 of the Portland Trail Blazers at the Izod Center on February 23, 2010 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.The Blazers defeated the Nets 102-93.NOTE TO
    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Devin Harris

    The Blazers have had an unfortunate start to this season and have been dealing with injuries all year long.

    Rumors begin to fly around earlier this year that Andre Miller and Brandon Roy did not get along. Then rumors had it that the Blazers were looking to deal Miller and maybe even Marcus Camby is they could get the right amount in return.

    If the Blazers want to get younger, and better at the point guard position, then they might consider making a push at New Jersey point guard Devin Harris. At one point, there were some talks about the Blazers being a pottential third team in the Carmelo sweepstakes and that would land them Harris.

    Either way, the need to make a decision soon, and if that means going a different direction at the point guard position, so be it.

Denver Nuggets

19 of 30

    DENVER, CO - JANUARY 21:  Carmelo Anthony #15 of the Denver Nuggets looks on during a break in the action against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Pepsi Center on January 21, 2011 in Denver, Colorado. The Lakers defeated the Nuggets 107-97. NOTE TO USER: Use

    Top Trade Target: First Round Pick(s)

    If the Nuggets are going to complete a deal for Carmelo Anthony, they have made it clear that they want some youth and first round draft picks in return.

    I see this deal getting done eventually with New York, and in return the Nuggets will land all of the Knicks good players not named Stoudemire and Felton, as well as at least one first round pick.

Utah Jazz

    Top Trade Target: NBA Draft Picks

    I think it's safe to say that the Utah Jazz are probably not going to make a major move before the trade deadline. In fact, the only trade rumor that has even been associated with their team is involving AK-47 to the Nets, but that will probaaly happen later on via free agency.

    If the Jazz do make a move, it would likely be for draft picks or someone to play a backup role.

Oklahoma City Thunder

    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Anderson Varejao

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are one big man away from being a legitament title contender in the Western Conference. They have the scoring, they have the great guard play, now they need someone who can bang down low, rebound the basketball, and defend the paint.

    Anderson Varejao can do all three, and he is on a team that is looking to make any deal possible at this point in time.

Atlanta Hawks

22 of 30

    ATLANTA - JANUARY 15:  Steve Nash #13 of the Phoenix Suns against Mike Bibby #10 of the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena on January 15, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and/or using this Ph
    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Steve Nash

    The Phoenix Suns have to make up their mind if they are going to try and continue to compete or are they ready to start rebuilding.

    If they make the choice be rebuild, that will mean that they will begin to listen to offers for Steve Nash. With Mike Bibby wearing out his welcome in Atlanta, Nash would be the ideal fit.

    The Hawks are a very good basketball team, they are just overshadowed by the giants in the East, the Heat, Celtics, Magic and Bulls. Making this move would make them not only a contender in the East, but an NBA championship contender as well.

Orlando Magic

23 of 30

    ORLANDO, FL - JANUARY 24:  Jason Richardson #23 of the Orlando Magic attempts a shot over Tracy McGrady #1 of the Detroit Pistons during the game at Amway Arena on January 24, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

    The Orlando Magic have already made their big splash in the trade market this season, acquiring Jason Richardson, Gilbert Arenas and Hedo Turkoglu in a three-way deal with the Wizards and Suns.

    The move seems to be paying off for the most part as the three are fitting in nicely with Orlando. Don't expect the Magic to many any more big moves this season. They needed to switch things up and that they did. Now all we can do is wait to see how it all unfolds in the postseason.

New Orleans Hornets

    NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 22:  Chris Paul #3 of the New Orleans Hornets drives the ball up the court during the game against the San Antonio Spurs at the New Orleans Arena on January 22, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The Hornets defeated the Spurs 96-7
    Chris Graythen/Getty Images

    Much like the Orlando Magic, the New Orleans Hornets have already made their big trade this season and will likely stay quiet in trade talks from here on out.

    Just over two months ago, the Hornets sent Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless to the Raptors for Jarrett Jack, David Andersen and Marcus Banks.

    The Hornets have a very strong starting lineup and are playing some of the best basketball in the NBA right now. No need for another deal to be made this season.

Dallas Mavericks

    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Nene

    The Mavericks are always looking to improve their frontcourt, and Nene would give them another nice piece there.

    Nene can get out of his contract early and it has been rumored that Nene is not happy with Denver and whats going on with the state of their basketball team. He likes Miami and Dallas. Miami dossen't have the money and Dallas always finds ways to make deals before the deadline.

    If Nene is going anywhere, Dallas could very well be the spot.

Chicago Bulls

26 of 30

    CHICAGO - FEBRUARY 22:  Carmelo Anthony #15 of the Denver Nuggets goes to the basket against the Chicago Bulls during the game on February 22, 2008 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls won 135-121. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges
    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Carmelo Anthony

    The deal here is that the Bulls have much more interesting pieces to offer the Nuggets as of now than the Knicks do. One rumor floating around is that Carmelo talked to his agents and they are pushing for a trade to Chicago. Melo could put Chicago in the hunt as a legit favorite to win the NBA Championship.

    But in the end, the Bulls have a great thing going right now. They are one of the top teams in the NBA and it doesn't make much sense why they would want to break that up. Not to mention that when it comes time to pay both Derrick Rose and Anthony, that would be one scary mess.

Miami Heat

27 of 30

    MIAMI, FL - JANUARY 22:  Mike Miller #13 of the Miami Heat spasses the ball during a game against the Toronto Raptors at American Airlines Arena on January 22, 2011 in Miami, Florida. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloadi
    Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: T.J. Ford

    This probably is not going to happen, simply because the Miami Heat do not have any money to spend and are not really in the market to make a trade right now.

    If they do decide to make a move, it will likely be a move that helps bring depth to the point guard position. Either way, expect for Miami to wait until the summer time to make any type of move.

L.A. Lakers

    LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 27:  Andrew Bynum #17 of the Los Angeles Lakers looks to maneuver against Chris Kaman #35 of the Los Angeles Clippers during the season opening game at Staples Center on October 27, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.  The Lakers wo

    Top Trade Target: Chris Kaman

    Again, this is a deal that is not likely too happen, but the Lakers do need depth at the center position with the constant injuries to Andrew Bynum. It would be a pretty simple move considering Kaman wouldn't have to even move cities here.

    Chances are the Lakers will stay put this season. They have a good thing going right now and there is no reason to mess with that.

Boston Celtics

    Elsa/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: No one

    The Boston Celtics have to be perfectly content with what they have right now. Their only issue at the beggining of the season was with depth at the center position, and now with Kendrick Perkins back in the lineup, they have superior depth all the way around.

    There have been some occasional rumors about them trying to trade Ray Allen, but with the chemistry they have on this team right now, that would be a bone-head move.

San Antonio Spurs

    Scott Boehm/Getty Images

    Top Trade Target: Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

    The Spurs currently hold the best record in the NBA and are doing it with a veteran group that has built an incredible amount of chemistry together over the years.

    With that said, they're chances of making a deal before the deadline are slim to none. But, if you had to throw a name out there who could make an interesting addition to their lineup it would be Luc RIchard Mbah a Moute.

    The Spurs might look to build depth at the power forward position behind Duncan, and Mbah a Moute is a nice player that could fit a backup role on a winning team very well. Again, probably not going to happen, but it does remain at least a possibility at this point in time.
