NBA Trade Deadline Roundup (2022)

As always, we had a bunch of trades come through at the last minute. We had some big ones, some little ones, and some meh ones. Here is every single trade that came through over the last week or so.


Brooklyn Recieve: Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and 2 first-round draft picks.

Philadelphia Receive: James Harden, and Paul Millsap.

Well, Philly got a lot worse and Brooklyn got a lot better. I can’t believe Harden sulked his way out of another team. That’s two teams in two years. Just when I think I can’t despise him anymore.

It’s hard to imagine that Harden and Embiid will be able to play well together. There is just too much ego on one squad.

On the other hand, Brooklyn has gained an elite defender in Simmons. I don’t think it will matter that he can’t shoot. He will have enough shooting talent around him, especially with the recent acquisition of Curry. Drummond is also a huge boost. Brooklyn will be serious title contenders now.


Dallas Receive: Spencer Dinwiddie, and Davis Bertans

Washington Receive: Kristaps Porzingis, and a 2nd round pick

It’s not a bad trade for either squad. A fresh scenario for all three guys might be exactly what they need. Dallas should be ok. Washington is taking a risk on Porzingis, considering how much he is injured. If he remains healthy, it might work out for them. Not defensively though!


Charlotte Receive: Montrezl Harrell

Washington Recieve: Ish Smith, and Vernon Carey Jr.


Boston Receive: Derrick White

San Antonio Receive: A first-round pick, Romeo Langford, and Josh Richardson


Indiana Receive: Jalen Smith, and a 2nd round pick

Phoenix Receive: Torrey Craig


Detroit Receive: Marvin Bagley the 3rd

L.A. Clippers Receive: Rodney Hood and Semi Ojleye

Sacramento Receive: Trey Lyles, Donte DiVincenzo, and Josh Jackson

Milwaukee Receive: Serge Ibaka, and 2 2nd round picks

It’s not the trade deadline without a 4 team trade. It’s good to see the Kings finally moving on from Bagley.


Boston Receive: A 2nd rounder

Orlando Receive: PJ Dozier, Bol Bol, A 2nd rounder, and cash


Boston Receive: Daniel Theis

Houston Receive: Enes Kanter, Dennis Schroder and Bruno Fernando

Theis is coming back to Boston!


San Antonio Receive: Goran Dragic and a first-round pick

Toronto Receive: Drew Eubanks, Thaddeus Young, and a second-round pick

I suspect Dragic will be waived and become a buyout candidate for a contending team.


Phoenix Receive: Aaron Holiday

Washington Receive: Cash


Sacramento Receive: Domantas Sabonis, Jeremy Lamb, Justin Holiday, and a 2nd rounder

Indiana Receive: Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield, and Tristan Thompson

Great move by Sacramento. I wonder why they didn’t keep Haliburton and move Fox though?


L.A. Clippers Receive: Robert Covington and Norman Powell

Portland Receive: Justice Winslow, Eric Bledsoe, Keon Johnson, and a second-round pick


Portland Receive: Elijah Hughes, Joe Ingles, and a second-round pick

San Antonio Receive: Tomas Satoransky and a second-round pick

Utah Receive: Juancho Hernangomez and Nickeil Alexander-Walker

Poor Joe 😦


Portland Receive: Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Tomas Satoransky, Josh Hart, Didi Louzada, and a 1st rounder

New Orleans Receive: CJ McCollum, Tony Snell, and Larry Nance Jr.

When we look at the LAC/Portland and 3 team trade as well, it looks like Portland are determined to build around Dame this off-season. They’ve freed up some space and some money. Let’s see what they can do with it.


Indiana Receive: Ricky Rubio, a first-round and two second-round picks

Cleveland Receive: Caris LeVert and a second-round pick


Ready for the real blockbuster deal?

Miami Receive: A 2nd round pick

Oklahoma Receive: KZ Okpala

Wow.


The biggest deal that didn’t happen involved the Los Angeles Lakers. They apparently tried as hard as they could to move Westbrook and some of their younger assets, but no one was biting. That’s not really surprising.

Houston apparently called the Lakers and offered them John Wall in exchange for Westbrook and the Lakers last remaining first-round pick, but the Lakers said no. I guess they don’t want to get rid of their only pick.

Sadly, this will likely mean that Frank Vogel gets fired. Really, it should be Rob Pelinka. He is the one who assembled this monstrosity of a team.
