The trade wins are a-blowin’ ahead of next week’s deadline.
The Western Conference has been relatively quiet: The Denver Nuggets, whose best player is a center, acquired Mason Plumlee — a player best suited for center minutes.
The Eastern Conference has been slightly more active. The Cleveland Cavaliers cleared a roster spot by moving Chris Andersen to Charlotte — a precursor to another free-agent signing. Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors, desperately trying to match pace with the Eastern Conference upper echelon, have made waves by shipping out Terrence Ross for Serge Ibaka.
