Trade rumors are going to be floating around at a high rate. There will be plenty of possibilities between two or three teams for big name players and draft picks. Could the Dallas Mavericks, Charlotte Hornets, and Detroit Pistons come together on a big-time trade that would involve Blake Griffin and the No. 3 overall pick?

This particular trade involves both. The Hornets are in the top three of the draft and could choose to move down if they want. Moving down would land them a nice return for their pick.

Other teams, like the Detroit Pistons or Dallas Mavericks, could be looking to add some more talent to their roster.

Dallas is in a position to add another bigger name player after finishing seventh in the Western Conference this season. Mark Cuban is an owner who likes to make big moves and one could be in store here.

This three-team deal has a lot of moving parts to it. Let’s break down each team’s return side-by-side.
