Now that the NBA free-agent frenzy has finally wound down, it's time for the NBA trading season to get into full gear. To date, there has been only one major trade -- the four-team deal that swapped four guys no one else wanted -- Latrell Sprewell, Keith Van Horn, Glenn Robinson and Terrell Brandon.

That's a major disappointment when you consider how many top teams struck out in the free-agent market this summer.
