NBA Trade Deadline 2020 Updated (5:00pm EST)


The NBA trade deadline is upon us. As all teams are actively looking at their roster and seeing what pieces they need to make a championship run, they better think fast as trades end Thursday at 3pm eastern.

UPDATED: The last blockbuster trade of the day included the Knicks Clippers and Wizards! The Clippers gain Marcus Morris and Isaiah Thomas (I.T. the Clippers will waive), the Wizards will receive Jerome Robinson who they wanted to draft and the Knicks get Moe Harkless plus a 2020 First Round Pick.

UPDATED: The Detroit Pistons are trading Andre Drummond to Cleveland in return for Brandon Knight, John Henson and a second round draft pick. Drummond looks just as confused as all of us… definitely could’ve got more from other teams.

UPDATED: According to Woj of ESPN the Golden State Warriors have traded D’Angelo Russell, Omari Spellman and Jacob Evans to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins, a protected 2021 first round pick & and 2022 second round pick. This teams D-Lo up with his good friend Karl Anthony Towns which the two have had a great desire to play together. The warriors are stacking their picks to draft some talent or use the picks for more trade bait before the deadline ends!

The first big trade that has kicked off the deadline was a move involving James Harden’s favorite pick and roll threat Clint Capela. Tuesday night it was announced there was a huge 4 team, 12 players trade between the Rockets, Hawks, Nuggets & Timberwolves. The big pieces in the trade include the already mentioned Capela heading to Atlanta and Robert Convington going to Houston with Jordan Bell from Minnesota.

Another trade that is in the works and yet to be fully completed involves 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala. Dre was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in the offseason but has yet to play a minute for the franchise. It’s reported that the Miami Heat have worked out a deal that will land him in Miami in a trade for Justise Winslow. Supposedly reported by Woj of ESPN that the OKC Thunder are in the mix which will also allow Miami to gain forward Danilo Gallinari. The trade isn’t final yet and it looks like there’s more pieces to the puzzle but Miami is definitely going all out at the deadline.

UPDATED: Miami has agreed to trade Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters and James Johnson to Memphis for Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder. Miami is still trying to bring OKC in the picture for Gallinari but the clock is ticking!

I mentioned Atlanta earlier and I’m mentioning them again because they are trading Jabari Parker and Alex Len to the Sacramento Kings for Dewayne Dedmon and two second round draft picks sources tell Zach Lowe.

Late in the evening Wednesday night the Warriors & Sixers made a swap with Golden State trading Glenn Robinson III & Alec Burks in exchange for 3 second round picks.

The NBA Trade Deadline has now come and gone. It was fun while it lasted, some teams made good moves and others some head scratching ones. How’d your team do? Let me know in the comments!

Carmelo Anthony: “The New Yorker”

This off-season Carmelo Anthony did the unexpected, he stayed. Melo had many offers on the table this off-season from many prestigious franchises such as the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Los Angeles Lakers but he chose to stay in the big apple. With Phil Jackson taking over as President and a very new coach in Derek Fisher, Carmelo Anthony felt comfortable enough to take the Knicks offer. I’d be comfortable too with a 5 year, $125 million dollar contract. This season will be interesting to see how it all works out but one thing is for sure and that is Carmelo Anthony is “The New Yorker” for the possible next 5 seasons!
