Greetings, heroes! Another month of basketball concludes, and we get to my favorite time of the year: TRADE DEADLINE SEASON!! Every year some sort of bizarre tomfoolery happens on the day of the trade deadline. Now, we get to endlessly speculate between now and February 6 on what players and what draft picks are going to get swapped in the ensuing week. In this column of seven of my monthly basketball shower thoughts, I’ll regale you with seven deadline deals that could - or more specifically, ones that I would like to see - go down. An obvious disclaimer is that some of my shower thoughts are obviously better than others. For some of you, dear readers, may not like the ideas I postulate before you. They may make no sense to you. To me, they’re a result of having way too much fun with the trade machine and tracking down draft pick ownership (the latter of which you can find here: https://basketball.realgm.com/nba/draft/future_drafts/detailed). As always, proceed at your own risk.
