NBA Trade Deadline Run Down

Deadline Recap 2017

Quick Recap of a Busy NBA Trade Deadline Day

I truly hope every NBA fan had a very successful Adrian Wojnarowski Day.

While there were no high profile, superstar names moved on one of the busiest days of the NBA calendar, the NBA still saw a slew of trades made prior to the February 23, 3:00P.M. Eastern deadline. In case you missed the last few hour before the deadline, or lost the will to refresh your twitter feed, here is what you missed:

Philadelphia 76ers Get: Andrew Bogut, Justin Anderson, 2018 First Round Pick

Dallas Mavericks Get: Nerlens Noel

Yes, maybe the 76ers could have gotten more for Noel, but at the end of the day they cleared up their front court big man problem and received a first round pick in the process. Meanwhile the Mavericks get their big man of the future.

Lastly, the 76ers are in talks of buying out Bogut. He wouldn’t be allowed to join the Warriors, but like recently waived Deron Williams, he may look at moving to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Brooklyn Nets Get: K.J. McDaniels

Houston Rockets Get: Cash Dump

There Rockets receive nothing in this trade other than salary relief, while the Nets get a young and athletic wing player who was lost in the fold of a deep Houston Rockets roster.

Oklahoma City Thunder Get: Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott, 2018 Second Round Pick

Chicago Bulls Get: Anthony Morrow, Cameron Payne, Joffrey Lauvergne

Sam Presti robbed yet another team. He adds invaluable pieces around Russell Westbrook for an Oklahoma City Thunder playoff run, gets a second round pick in the process and doesn’t even give up much.

Payne may be the most talented of the three players the Bulls received and will join an already crowded Chicago backcourt.

Denver Nuggets: Roy Hibbert

Milwaukee Bucks: Protected 2019 Second Round Pick

Nuggets receive some rim protection with Hibbert, but other than that, just a trade based around a player who doesn’t have much left to offer to any NBA team.

Houston Rockets Get: Marcelo Huertas

Los Angeles Lakers Get: Tyler Ennis

While the Rockets are expected to waive Huertas to create more salary relief, the Lakers receive a young, former first round pick out of Syracuse. This may be the Canadian Ennis’ finally chance to show that he belongs in the NBA.

Phoenix Suns Gets: Mike Scott

Atlanta Hawks: Cenk Akyol, Cash

When the Atlanta Hawks acquired Ersan Ilyasova, Scott became expendable. Now the Suns added a stretch four in Mike Scott, and the Hawks can focus on the playoffs.

The real feel good story of the trade is Akyol returning to the team that drafted him in 2005. The Turkish product has yet to play an NBA game so Hawks fans shouldn’t hold their breath.

Toronto Raptors Get: P.J. Tucker

Phoenix Suns: Jared Sullinger, 2017 and 2018 Second Round Pick

Jared Sullinger, largely a non-factor with the Raptors, returns to the general manager who originally drafted him on an expiring contract. Alongside Sully are two second round picks.

Meanwhile the Toronto Raptors receive a rugged defender, who too is on an expiring contract, but a guy who will add much needed toughness to the Raps. Masai Ujiri has the Raptors ready for a playoff run with quite possibly the best assortment of talent in franchise history.

NBAonTNT Gets: Chris Bosh

Miami Heat Get: Absolutely Nothing

Quite possibly the biggest acquisition of the day was Chris Bosh announcing he will join the NBAonTNT for the next five weeks, putting an end to his 2016-17 season comeback attempt.
