5 massive offseason trades that would shake the landscape of NBA

NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

Trades are an avenue that teams can take to improve their roster for next season, and we’ve already seen a trade occur during the NBA playoffs. Kemba Walker was traded from the Boston Celtics — along with a first-round pick — to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Al Horford, Moses Brown, and a future second-round pick. The move was conducted by the Celtics to create some wiggle room financially this offseason.

Besides the Walker trade, there are plenty of teams that could be looking to manufacture a trade this offseason. The Philadelphia 76ers could field offers for Ben Simmons this summer, and there are rumblings of the Portland Trail Blazers looking to changes things up.

Certain trades that take place aren’t enough to move the needle for a team, as some of them don’t pan out. But there are other trades that could transpire that would alter our outlook on certain teams.

While I attempt to take a somewhat realistic approach to what trades could happen, these are a few trades that would shake the landscape of the NBA next season.
