The Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic started the day of the NBA’s trade deadline with some fanfare.

Here’s a rundown of everything happening.


LaMarcus Aldridge

Andre Drummond

Jalen Lecque

Miami acquires Victor Oladipo for Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk, more

Oladipo is headed to one of his preferred destinations in Miami, while the Rockets take on two former Celtics.

Celtics acquire Mo Wagner for Daniel Theis

The Celtics also sent out Jeff Teague and Javonte Green. Much more on this trade coming soon on Boston.com.

San Antonio acquires Marquese Chriss for Cady Lalanne

The Spurs get a free look at a former lottery pick while the Warriors clear their roster of a player who was getting no minutes.

Dallas acquires J.J. Redick for James Johnson, more

The Mavericks picked up a pair of shooters in Redick and Melli, while New Orleans cleared some space and added a small amount of draft capital.

Kings acquire Terence Davis for a 2nd-round pick


Davis gives the Kings some more guard and wing depth and a look at a prospect for the future. The Raptors cleared more space.

Jazz acquire Matt Thomas for a 2nd-round pick

Thomas gives the Jazz some bench shooting and a (nearly) free look at a player Toronto was looking to offload.

Clippers acquire Rajon Rondo for Lou Williams, 2nd-round picks

The Clippers send out a proven scorer and bring in a proven playoff player in Rondo. Williams goes home to Atlanta and bolsters the Hawks’ bench.

Portland acquires Norm Powell for Gary Trent Jr.

The Blazers pick up a proven scorer in Powell, who has big-game experience. He could prove to be a nice supporting piece around Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. The Raptors might be on the brink of a teardown.

Heat acquire Nmenja Bjelica from Sacramento



Miami adds to its floor spacing by picking up a sweet shooting forward in Bjelica. He’s having a down year, especially from 3, but could be a nice addition for the Heat.

Nuggets acquire Aaron Gordon for Gary Harris, R.J. Hampton, pick

The Nuggets were Boston’s reported rival in Gordon talks, and they ultimately offered a package the Celtics were seemingly unwilling to match. The Magic got a young prospect in Hampton who was considered near-lottery talent in last year’s draft, as well as a first-round pick. Harris has had a down year but offers potential at shooting guard.

Denver, meanwhile, brings in a forward to replace Jerami Grant, who departed for Detroit during the offseason.


The Celtics’ reported offer was a first-round pick and one of their young wings. It’s unclear whether a second first-round pick was on the table, but Denver’s package suggests the Celtics weren’t going to budge.

Chicago acquires Troy Brown for Daniel Gafford

The Bulls and Wizards shuffle around a few players. The Wizards get an interesting back-up big in Gafford, while Chicago adds Brown to its wing depth.

Celtics acquire Evan Fournier for two first-round picks

The Celtics picked up a big scoring upgrade, acquiring Fournier who averaged nearly 20 points per game for Orlando. Fournier fits into the traded player exception created by Gordon Hayward’s sign-and-trade this offseason. He will be a free agent this summer.


Full details here.

Bulls acquire Nikola Vucevic for Wendell Carter Jr.

The Bulls picked up an All-Star to play next to Zach LaVine. The Magic began their teardown in earnest.

Cavaliers deal JaVale McGee to Denver Nuggets

The Cavaliers took on McGee this summer and ultimately moved him for a small amount of draft capital. Denver, meanwhile, re-acquired a familiar face with length and a ton of athleticism.
