5 deadline trades that could push the Pistons over the hump

The Detroit Pistons went into the all-star break on a solid note with their 98-91 victory over Dallas this past Wednesday and temporarily solidified the eighth and final playoff spot in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

Yet – there’s a shadow of uncertainty about the future that plagues this team and whispers of trade deadline shakeups are rabid.

In my opinion, the Stones could use a trade to navigate out of inconsistent waters but not just any trade. If Stan Van Gundy is indeed skimming through NBA trade aisles, he has to get something more back than say – a D.J. Augustine or Jeff Green.

Here are five trade ideas that SVG should consider in order to get his team possibly out of the first round of the playoffs.
