It’s the most wonderful time of the year, TRADE SEASON!!!! It is after December 15th, the first day that most players drafted or signed this offseason can be traded, so that means things should start heating up on the trade front. I am going to try to come up with a trade for every team in the NBA that is realistic, works for both sides both financially and team-fit, doesn’t mortgage the future and it is not far fetched to think that both sides would accept it. I know that some will not be perfectly even, but I would like to think that all the trades put forward, both teams would at least have to think about a little. If not specified, the same pick protection carries over to the following year
