During the previous NBA Trade Deadline, a record-setting 37 players (besides draft picks) were moved in a total of 11 trades. This year’s deadline day wasn’t as frantic but served the purpose for several teams.
Here’s a complete recap of the NBA Trade Deadline:
- The Los Angeles Clippers traded Lance Stephenson and a future first-round pick to Memphis Grizzlies for Jeff Green. This means that Green will be re-united with Doc Rivers after their days together in Boston. |Report|
- The Oklahoma City Thunder received Randy Foye from the Denver Nuggets for D.J. Augustin, Steve Novak and two second-round picks.
- Chicago Bulls traded Kirk Hinrich, 35, to the Atlanta Hawks for a second-round pick.
- Phoenix Suns traded Markieff Morris to Washington Wizards in exchange for DeJuan Blair, Kris Humphries and a protected first-round pick.
- In a three-team deal, Cleveland Cavaliers snagged Channing Frye from the Orlando Magic. Orlando received Jared Cunningham and a second-round pick (via Orlando); and Portland Trail Blazers received Anderson Varejao and a conditional 2018 first-round pick (via Cleveland). Varejao is likely to be waived by Portland.
- Houston Rockets traded Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton to the Detroit Pistons for Joel Anthony and a protected 2016 first round pick. |Report|
- Miami Heat traded Jarnell Stokes and a protected pick to the New Orleans Pelicans for a trade exception. As reported by Zach Lowe, the move is just a small salary dump.
- The Utah Jazz received Shelvin Mack from the Atlanta Hawks for a second-round pick.
- Miami Heat sent a second-round pick to Portland Trail Blazers for absorbing Brian Roberts into cap space.
- Houston Rockets sent just-acquired center Joel Anthony to Philadelphia 76ers.
