These are completely hypothetical and fun trades we'd love to see happen before Thursday's 3 pm ET NBA trade deadline hits. Some are rooted in the rumors we've all read from NBA insiders while others could most definitely be classified as wishful thinking.

Were we able to ship DeAndre Jordan out of Los Angeles? What contender in the West got some much needed under-the-radar help in their quest to dethrone the Warriors? How did we shake up the Cavaliers? Peep the five trades we'd like to see happen before the deadline.
