Every Deadline Trade And Accompanying Knee Jerk Reactions – Part II

nba trade deadline basketball forever

It’s over.

The trade deadline has passed, meaning we can all finally get some sleep.

But before you doze off, here’s every trade since Part I of our deadline rundown.

Raptors receive: Marc Gasol

Grizzlies receive: Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a second-round pick

While some teams were chasing expiring contracts, Toronto boldly traded for a 34-year-old with an expiring prime.

Magic receive: Markelle Fultz

76ers receive: Jonathon Simmons, a first-round pick and a second-round pick

If an institutional pillar of excellence like the Orlando Magic can’t turn Markelle Fultz’s career around, I don’t know who can.

Bucks receive: Nikola Mirotic

Pelicans receive: Jason Smith, Stanley Johnson and four second round picks

Pistons receive: Thon Maker

Nikola Mirotic joins the Giannis roadshow after leaving the AD freakshow.

76ers receive: James Ennis

Rockets receive: Future second-round swap rights (what an asset!)

James Ennis was originally acquired by Houston to fill the void left by Trevor Ariza. That did not go well.

Clippers receive: Michael Beasley, Ivica Zubac

Lakers receive: Mike Muscala

If Mike Muscala thought the locker room dynamic in Philly was intense, just wait until he joins the post-deadline Lakers.

Other news

The Lakers are still considering signing Carmelo Anthony

Yep, that should fix everything.

The Knicks and Enes Kanter will soon file their divorce papers

Kanter was a valuable piece for New York, happily providing all the fuel required to keep their tank running.

The Bulls and Robin Lopez are working towards a buyout

With Mirotic and Bobby Portis already shipped out of town, the Bulls have now traded all their guys with a propensity for violence.
