One team will catch us by surprise.
Last season, we witnessed the Denver Nuggets trade their newly signed big man Nene to the Wizards just a few months after signing him to a five-year, $67 million contract. We watched the Warriors ship out their leading scorer Monta Ellis to Milwaukee for a center who was shelved for the season, Andrew Bogut.
And sometimes the biggest eyebrow-raiser is the trade that doesn't happen (right, Orlando?).
Five teams to keep an eye on as the Feb. 21 trade deadline nears.
