Every Deadline Trade And Accompanying Knee Jerk Reactions – Part II


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.
