While trade speculation about big-ticket players will heat up in December, the following less-celebrated names are better bets to be shopped. (As for rumors involving the Big Ticket: Kevin Garnett isn't going anywhere.)
Tim Thomas, Bulls (right). The forward's expiring contract and $14 million salary could net Chicago the frontcourt scorer ( Seattle's Vladimir Radmanovic?) it needs.
Earl Watson, Nuggets. His price is high ($29 million for five years), but the demand for point guards is great.
Devean George, Lakers. Nearing the end of his deal (at $5 million a year), the veteran forward could be swapped for a big man.
Dan Gadzuric, Bucks. Full up in the frontcourt, Milwaukee could unload Gadzuric to a contender hungry for a high-energy center who doesn't mind the dirty work.
