The NBA Trade Deadline is only weeks away, and the Trail Blazers are in the middle of a loaded field of Western Conference contenders. With that in mind, Blazer’s Edge contributor Steve Dewald wants to see your best NBA Trade Machine ideas.
Admit it, we have all spent a little too long on ESPN’s acquisition tool, so lets put that time to good use.
What’s at stake?
Nothing. But seriously, Blazer’s Edge will feature a trio of submissions every Sunday leading up to the trade deadline. The submissions will be broken down into the following categories:
- Most Realistic
Trying to be featured in this category? You better run your ideas by a friend first. These deals must make sense for the Blazers and the other parties involved.
- Most Creative
Spoiler alert, Steve loves deals that involve the rights to Dani Diez. Intricate pick protections, salary cap gymnastics, and draft rights will receive bonus points here.
- For the Laughs
Whether it is intentional or not, if you make Steve chuckle, you might take down this abstract-themed category.
How it works
All trades must function inside ESPN’s Trade Machine. Trades can be submitted directly to Steve in three different ways.
- You can tag him on Twitter @SteveDHoops with a photo and brief explanation of your trade.
- You can send your trades to him via e-mail (BEdgeSteve@gmail.com).
- Or you can post them on Twitter using the hashtag #FakeNBATradesForSteve
Make sure to check back next Sunday for the results from the first week.
