What were the best and biggest NBA moves of the past 10 years?

LeBron James' decision to join the Miami Heat on July 8, 2010, led to an enormous rise in transactions taking over the league. With the NBA in limbo in the midst of its 74th season, our NBA experts -- Tim Bontemps, Bobby Marks and Kevin Pelton -- rank the top 74 trades, signings, draft picks and player moves since LeBron took his talents to South Beach.

In making this list, we considered both the quality and the impact of the thousands of transactions over the past decade. Each analyst gave his own ranking based on how he evaluated the process and results of the transactions, leading to this composite ranking of the most impressive deals that had the biggest effects on the league.
