Pistons trade Drummond to Cavs
The Detroit Pistons era for Andre Drummond appears to be over. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic's Shams Charania are reporting the Cleveland Cavaliers are finalizing a deal to bring the former All-Star center to Ohio. Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer and Vince Ellis of The Detroit Free Press report Drummond is being traded for guard Brandon Knight, center John Henson and a second-round pick. This season, Drummond is leading the NBA in rebounding (15.8 rpg) while also averaging 17.8 ppg, 2.0 spg and 1.7 bpg for the Pistons. He has played his entire eight-year NBA career with Detroit and is the No. 2 rebounder in team history.
Marcus Morris dealt to Clippers
Knicks forward Marcus Morris has been a part of many playoff runs in his career and is in the midst of a standout season (19.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg). With the LA Clippers hoping for a deep playoff run themselves, he is reportedly on his way there. Not only is he headed going West, but per multiple reports, the Clippers are acquiring veteran guard Isaiah Thomas as well.
In a three-team trade, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Clippers will get Morris and Thomas, the Wizards will get Clippers guard Jerome Robinson and the Clippers' Moe Harkless and a 2020 first-round pick will head to the Knicks. However, The Athletic's David Aldridge reports the Clippers will not be keeping Thomas once he is acquired. The Los Angeles Lakers were also interested in Morris, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported earlier, but told the Knicks they were removing Kyle Kuzma from those trade talks.
Russell dealt to Wolves, Wiggins to Warriors
The Minnesota Timberwolves have made a major change to their core. Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Minnesota is sending former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins to the Golden State Warriors for guard D'Angelo Russell. The trade was also confirmed by Chris Hine of the Star Tribune. Additionally, the Wolves are sending a 2021 protected first-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick to Golden State while the Warriors are sending Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman to Minnesota. Per Wojnarowski, the 2021 pick is protected to No. 3 and becomes an unprotected pick in 2022.
Wizards trade McRae to Nuggets for Napier
The Washington Wizards and Denver Nuggets reportedly swapped guards on trade deadline day as the Wizards dealt away Jordan McRae for Shabazz Napier, per Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. Napier was dealt to Denver in the four-team, 12-player trade on Feb. 5 that centered on Clint Capela and Robert Covington. This season, he is averaging 9.6 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 5.2 apg and 1.1 spg, while McRae is averaging 12.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg and 2.8 apg.
Wolves get in on Heat-Grizzlies trade
Miami's trade with Memphis that landed it Andre Iguodala was thought to include a third team. It did, but it wasn't the squad most expected. Per multiple reports, the Minnesota Timberwolves -- and not the Oklahoma City Thunder with Danilo Gallinari -- joined in the trade by sending center Gorgui Dieng to the Grizzlies for James Johnson. In the originally reported deal, Johnson had gone from Miami to Memphis as part of the Iguodala swap.
Sixers reportedly trade Ennis to Magic
The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly added two guards to their rotation in the wee hours of trade deadline day in Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III. As the trade deadline window neared its end, the Sixers got rid of a rotation player as well. Per multiple reports, the Sixers sent forward James Ennis to the Orlando Magic in exchange for a second-round pick. Ennis is averaging 5.8 points and 3.1 rpg in 15.8 mpg for the Sixers, appearing in 49 games off the bench.
Hawks get Labissiere from Blazers, per report
The Atlanta Hawks have picked up another young big man to add to their growing roster of them, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Portland's Skal Labissiere is headed to Atlanta for cash in a deal that gives the Hawks a young center it can develop. Labissiere has been out since Dec. 28, when he suffered a left knee injury, but is averaging 5.8 ppg, 5.1 rpg and 1.3 apg in 33 games.
Report: Rockets get Caboclo from Grizzlies
Houston has swapped one big man for another, it seems. Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets have acquired 6-foot-9 forward Bruno Caboclo from the Memphis Grizzlies for 6-foot-8 forward Jordan Bell (whom the Rockets acquired in the Robert Covington trade on Feb. 5). Caboclo saw his role with the Grizzlies diminish this year after showing signs of progress in 2018-19. He's averaging 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds (after 8.3 ppg and 4.6 rpg) last season. Bell averaged 3.1 ppg and 1.9 rpg for the Timberwolves before being dealt to Houston. The teams are also exchanging future second-round picks in 2023.
Hawks pick up Clippers' Walton Jr.
The Atlanta Hawks have made overhauling their roster before the trade deadline a goal and are continuing to do so -- albeit in a smaller move. LA Clippers reserve guard Derrick Walton Jr. has reportedly been dealt to the Hawks for cash, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Walton, an undrafted player from Michigan, is averaging 2.2 points in 9.7 minutes per game this season for the Clippers, appearing in 23 games. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the Hawks may not be done making moves before the 3 p.m. ET deadline, too.
Grizzlies, Heat agree to Iguodala trade
The Andre Iguodala trade reportedly looks like it is all-but finalized (and, of course, not official yet). Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Heat are sending Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters and James Johnson to Memphis for Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder and Solomon Hill. No Draft picks are changing hands in the deal. In a later trade on Thursday, the Minnesota Timberwolves got in on the trade as well, reportedly sending center Gorgui Dieng to the Grizzlies for Johnson.
Burks, Robinson headed to Philly
The Golden State Warriors are trading Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III to Philadelphia 76ers for three second-round picks, according to a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic. The picks are expected to include one each in 2020 (via Dallas), 2021 (via Denver) and 2022 (via Toronto). ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Philadelphia was pursuing additional trades to open roster spots and avoid having to waive two players.> More on reported deal
