At 22-16, the Oklahoma City Thunder are seventh in the Western Conference and six games in the clear for the playoffs. With a real chance to compete for first-round home-court advantage, it's only reasonable to explore the trade market.

The Thunder entered the season with a young roster and unclear expectations, but Russell Westbrook's heroics have propelled the team forward and OKC could look to bolster its roster immediately.

The candidates in the following slides all come at different price tags, and they're listed in no particular order.
