Miami's Chris Bosh and Indiana's Danny Granger have been involved in trade speculation, but neither is likely to be moved. Bosh was scoreless in Game 7 of the NBA Finals and had trouble matching up with bigger centers, especially Roy Hibbert, but it's hard to imagine a trade involving him that would improve the Heat's chances of defending their championship next year. Granger's trade value is going to be unusually low after a knee injury sidelined him for most of the season. A better option for the Pacers would be to invite him back in hopes that he will improve their perimeter scoring next season in the final year of his contract.
