Trade scenarios for 'untradables'

Every season, there are a few toxic contracts around the league that elicit a "No way any team would trade for Player X's Terrible Contract!" retort from readers. And then someone takes on Player X's Terrible Contract. That's something to keep in mind when we hear that the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors are discussing a deal that involves Carlos Boozer and Andrea Bargnani, two of the most bloated contracts in the league.

The notion of the untradable contract is nothing but a myth. Remember Rashard Lewis' bad deal getting traded for Gilbert Arenas' even worse deal last season? Or what about the time Joe Johnson's monster contract got unloaded practically within seconds of Danny Ferry taking over in Atlanta this past summer? We can do this all day.
