Most NBA fans are familiar with ESPN's trade machine and various salary sites that help decipher whether a proposed deadline deal will be acceptable under league rules. Now BulletsForever, one of our SBNation sister sites, has given us an absolutely indispensable companion piece, the NBA Trade Realism Checker.
The name speaks for itself. Once you've got the mechanics of your proposed deal down, run it through the BulletsForever machine to figure out whether it passes muster. I've tried it half a dozen times and it's been accurate for every trial. Enjoy!
And while you're enjoying yourself, why not help us send 2000 underprivileged kids to see the Blazers-Kings game on March 28th? My suggestion is that for every trade you propose that doesn't pass muster, you dedicate one ticket to the cause.
Donating is easy. Just click here and use the promo code:
