The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching but there could be teams making moves over in the Western Conference. The Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors could use a shot in the arm but their targets will depend on different circumstances.

On one end is the Los Angeles Lakers who direly need a big man. The status of Anthony Davis has not improved and he continues to sit out for the purple and gold. Several names have popped up such as JaVale McGee and Hassan Whiteside. However, there is also Andre Drummond although getting him can only be done if he is bought out by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Lakers do not have financial flexibility, a reason why they can only offer minimum pay. Drummond owns a huge $28.8 million deal for the current NBA season before becoming a free agent. The Cavs continue to wait on offers but may find themselves buying out the 6-foot-10 center if there are no takers.

The only problem here is that other teams could rush in and try to beat the Lakers to Drummond. But if the 27-year-old double-double machine is wise, he could join Los Angeles and boost their NBA title bid and think about a lofty deal in the offseason.

Victor Oladipo is also on an expiring contract and could be on the move before Mar. 25. The Golden State Warriors are reportedly interested in the Houston Rockets guard but will only entertain offers that include players and not picks.

This becomes a bit of a problem with Warriors general manager Bob Myers not too keen about dealing out young blood. Stephen Curry needs help and Oladipo could provide that, especially with Klay Thompson still out of commission.

With nothing set in stone, there is a chance that other teams could swoop in and take Oladipo out of the Rockets' hands. The Miami Heat have the assets that Houston is looking for but nothing has progressed so far.

Things could change in the coming days for Drummond and Oladipo as NBA teams race to improve their rosters. Drummond is more likely to find a new team first considering he has been sitting out for the Cavs for quite some time now.
