Spoiler alert: Guess who is No. 1?

Bill Simmons has had his annual say on the 40 players with the most trade value in the NBA, but now it's your turn.

What does your list look like, SportsNation?

Before you get started stacking up proven star against emerging power, let's go over the ground rules. Here's what Simmons has to say on the process.

  • Salaries matter

  • Age matters

  • Pretend for 24 hours, any player can be traded without cap ramifications but with luxury-tax ramifications.

  • Concentrate on degrees: Neither San Antonio nor Orlando would make a Howard-Duncan trade, but the Spurs would at least say, ''Wow, Dwight Howard's available?'' and have a meeting about it while the Magic would say, ''There's no frickin' way we're trading Dwight Howard.''

    So what does Simmons' list look like? Check it out.
