Draft Trades

You can find trades prior to the draft in this post. We’ll update trades announced during the draft here.

The Magic and Bucks swap second-rounders

Houston buys a pick for later.

Bogdan Bogdanovic is NOT going to Milwaukee and will instead enter free agency.

There’s no place like home, apparently. The Minnesota Timberwolves are trading for Ricky Rubio, along with a couple picks.

Landry Shamet is part of a mid-round grab.

The Knicks and Timberwolves do a little pick-swapping at the end of the first round.

The Nuggets are picking up a late-round prospect.

The Knicks get Quicklier.

In a draft of a thousand paper cuts instead of a big sledgehammer deal, the Jazz move a low pick.

The Grizzlies pick up a Batman villain.

The Mavericks pick up a swingman for a former Blazers guard.

And the Clippers pick up a second-rounder.

The Thunder work some magic with the Wizards.

The Pelicans play some Jazz.

We don’t even know anymore.

The Clippers get Scrubb.
