As the least predictable season in NBA history nears its conclusion, it's time to start thinking about the offseason.
Player movement likely won't measure up to the madness of 2019, but there will surely be some players finding their way to new teams.
Free agency and the draft are the most straightforward modes of transportation, but trades are another obvious possibility.
Between now and the start of the 2020-21 campaign, these are the targets each organization should pursue in the trade market.
Atlanta Hawks: Eric Gordon
1 OF 30
The Atlanta Hawks scored 11.8 fewer points per 100 possessions when Trae Young went to the bench this season, signaling the team's clear need for more playmaking.
One player who could help while also providing some veteran leadership to a young team is Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon.
Gordon is coming off a dreadfully inefficient 2019-20, but he still showed flashes of explosiveness when healthy. In January, he dropped 50 on the Utah Jazz.
He, of course, wouldn't be called on to consistently provide that level of scoring in Atlanta. Young and John Collins will still be the top two options. But having a reliable ballhandler on the floor when Young sits could push the Hawks offense closer to average (it was 26th this season).
And with Clint Capela now on the roster, Atlanta may have a stretch 5 with whom it can entice Houston (more on that later).
Boston Celtics: Myles Turner
2 OF 30
You have to get nitpicky to find weaknesses for the Boston Celtics, a team that finished the season in the top four on both offense and defense.
The eye test takes you to their lack of size. Their starting center, Daniel Theis, stands just 6'8", but the team was still top-10 in both the frequency and efficiency of shots allowed at the rim.
Still, it isn't difficult to imagine modest jumps into the top five for each category with a bona fide rim protector in the middle of all those positionless wings.
If Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward were funneling perimeter drivers toward Myles Turner, Boston's defense could be even more daunting. Turner's ability to pull bigs out of the paint on the other end would also open up driving lanes for those scorers.
The problem, of course, is what it would take to get Turner. Marcus Smart's deal is plenty tradable, but he's been the emotional fulcrum of the team for years.
Hayward is another possibility, but then salary matching becomes a bit trickier, and one of Boston's biggest strengths is its ability to play largely positionless basketball.
Brooklyn Nets: Jrue Holiday
3 OF 30
After Kyrie Irving called the Brooklyn Nets' team needs "glaring" in January, it started to feel like many of his teammates were playing on borrowed time.
Brooklyn has a superstar duo with Irving and Kevin Durant, but those comments may have been a suggestion that the team needs a third star (or, at the very least, a near star).
New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday could be a seamless fit.
As a third option, he'd take some attention away from KD and Kyrie while getting more open shots than he's had in years. Defensively, he'd spare Irving from difficult matchups.
Playing him alongside Kyrie might make the backcourt a bit undersized, but Holiday plays much bigger than his 6'3" frame.
If New Orleans leans more fully into a youth movement with Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, Brooklyn should call about Jrue.
