There are four teams still playing basketball this season, which means that 26 teams have a lot of work to do. Some players on those 26 clubs are unhappy with their teams and some of those teams know they need to move a couple of their players to improve. With that in mind, here are a few trade ideas for general managers to mull over:

1. C Andrew Bynum and PG Ramon Sessions, Los Angeles Lakers for PG Deron Williams and C Brook Lopez, Brooklyn Nets

If the Nets' No. 1 plan of trading for Dwight Howard works, then by all means they should go that route. But if they can't get Howard and Williams wants to go elsewhere, the Nets should try to swing a sign-and-trade. Bynum is a New Jersey native who would give the Nets a star to build around in their move to Brooklyn, and Sessions is more than a serviceable point guard.
