Debating league-changing trades

The only thing Ric Bucher and Chris Broussard like to do more than report on the NBA is argue about the NBA. So we're continuing their One-on-One series into the offseason (and the lockout), today looking at potential game-changing trades to be made after the league resumes.

Which potential trade would do most to elevate a team to contender status or solidify its position at the top of the league?

BUCHER: A number of star-quality players could be available on the market once the NBA resolves its labor issues, providing a variety of teams the chance to elevate themselves with one bold move. For me, though, the Bulls are the team that most needs to add a piece to solidify itself as a threat to win a title. The guy they should go after is Joe Johnson.
