Let’s Have Some Fun With ESPN’s NBA Trade Machine

By: 03.06.12  •  15 Comments

Many a team gets made or broken by the trade deadline. It’s also at this time where cubicle GMs nationwide bide their time at the 9 to 5 with ESPN’s NBA Trade Machine. We all think we know better than the front offices of our beloved franchises and the trade simulator is the closest thing most of us will get to pulling the trigger on a blockbuster deal.

You won’t see the usual Dwight Howard/Pau Gasol/Monta Ellis trade Window herpa derp permeating sports headlines here. I tried to make these moves as interesting as possible even if they’re not likely. Every team mentioned has something to gain from the following transactions so don’t expect to see the same dream moves you pull off in your NBA 2K12 Association save.
