The big day is here. It’s trade deadline day, and we’ve already seen some sizable moves throughout the league.
I’ll try to keep this post updated with all the trades that happen throughout the day. If the Charlotte Hornets make a trade, that’ll obviously get its own story. There’s a good chance the Hornets stand pat today, and that wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, though it would be super boring.
You can use this space to talk about all the deals happening around the league.
This is now an open thread!
Deadline Deal Tracker:
The Rockets, Timberwolves, Hawks, and Nuggets agreed to a deal that shuffled 12 players between the four teams.
Hawks receive: Clint Capela (from Rockets), Nene (from Rockets; waived)
Rockets receive: Robert Covington (from Wolves), Jordan Bell (from Wolves), Second round pick (from Hawks; I’m having a hard time confirming which year)
Nuggets receive: Shabazz Napier (from Wolves), Keita Bates-Diop (from Wolves), Noah Vonleh (from Wolves), Gerald Green (from Rockets), and a 2020 first round pick (from Rockets)
Timberwolves receive: Evan Turner (from Hawks), Malik Beasley (from Nuggets), Juancho Hernangomez (from Nuggets), Jarred Vanderbilt (from Nuggets), and a 2020 first round pick (the Nets pick from the Hawks)
I think I got it all.
The Kings are sending Dewayne Dedmon and 2020 and 2021 second round picks to the Hawks (where Dedmon played from 2017-19) in exchange for Jabari Parker and Alex Len.
The Warriors are sending Glen Robinson III and Alec Burks to the 76ers for three second round picks. The 76ers need to make other moves today to clear rosters space and make the financials work.
The Grizzlies have agreed to trade Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder, and Solomon Hill to the Heat in exchange for Justise Winslow, James Johnson, and Dion Waiters. It seems like the potential Gallinari deal has fallen through, though there’s still time for it to be resurrected.
The Clippers are trading Derrick Walton Jr. to the Hawks for cash. Big moves only here.
The Timberwolves finally got D’Angelo Russell. The get him, Jacob Evans, and Omari Spellman for Andrew Wiggins and 2021 first and second round picks.
The Rockets traded newly acquired Jordan Bell to the Grizzlies for Bruno Caboclo. Teams did some second round pick swappery as well.
The Hawks also sent out cash to bring in Skal Labissiere from the Trail Blazers.
The Knicks and Clippers are finalizing a deal that will send Marcus Morris to the Clippers for Moe Harkless and other things.
Andre Drummond is being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers for some reason. The Pistons will get back Brandon Knight (former Piston), John Henson, and a second round pick. What a meager haul.
Shabazz Napier is being traded again, this time from the Nuggets to the Wizards in exchange for Jordan McRae.
Gorgui Dieng is being sent from the Wolves to the Grizzlies in exchange for James Johnson.
The Knicks and Clippers deal will also include the Wizards. Marcus Morris and Isaiah Thomas are heading to the Clippers. Jerome Robinson is going to the Wizards and Moe Harkless and the Clippers 2020 first round pick are going to the Knicks.
James Ennis has been traded from the 76ers to the Magic for a second round pick.
