The 2023 NBA trade deadline is one week away, and so far we've only seen two trades during the regular season, one of which -- the Boston Celtics trading Noah Vonleh to the San Antonio Spurs -- was a pure salary dump for luxury tax purposes.
The tight standings in both the East and West could mean fewer teams will be looking to deal away players at the deadline, but it also could mean some teams will be bolder in making trades -- seeing an opportunity to make a big move up the standings before the playoffs begin in April.
Rather than wait to see what will happen -- or even if anything will happen -- we've asked our NBA experts to construct trades they want to see ahead of 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 9, some of which could shake up the league in major ways.
