NBA Trade Deadline day is here and several teams are making moves to bolster their rosters for the final portion of the 2019-20 season. The Trail Blazers have yet to enter the fray and a move appears to be unlikely at this point. Blazers aside, here is what has transpired.
- According to Chris Mannix, the Wizards rebuffed the Celtics’ trade offer for 27-year-old power forward Davis Bertans.
- A post-deadline buyout for Cavs center Tristan Thompson is unlikely according to David Aldridge.
- Veteran free agent guards JR Smith and Darren Collison are positioned to receive workouts from the Lakers. According to Marc Stein, those tryouts could come as early as next week.
- According to David Aldridge, the Clippers do not intend to keep Isaiah Thomas following a three-team deal with the Knicks and Wizards.
- The trade between the Clippers and Knicks will also include the Wizards according Adrian Wojnarowski. The Clippers add veterans Marcus Morris and Isaiah Thomas. The Wizards landed 2018 first-round pick Jerome Robinson. The Knicks acquired Moe Harkless and a 2020 first-round pick.
- According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pistons are waiving Tim Frazier.
- In order to create open roster spots for Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III, Philly Inquirer beat writer Keith Pompey reported that the Sixers shipped James Ennis to the Magic for a second-round pick. Pompey also revealed that reserve point guard Trey Burke, who is not with the Sixers in Milwaukee, is going to be waived.
- Shabazz Napier is on the move once again. The former Blazers point guard is headed to the Wizards according to Adrian Wojnarowski. In exchange for Napier, Washington is sending Jordan McRae to Denver.
- Minnesota is making the Miami-Memphis deal for Andre Iguodala a three-team trade, sending Gorgui Dieng to the Grizzlies for James Johnson, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

- The Clippers are sending Derrick Walton Jr. to Atlanta, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
- The Sixers and Warriors agreed to a deal that will send a pair of veterans to Philadelphia. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are headed to Philly. Golden State will receive a package that includes three second-round picks. The Sixers still have moves to make prior to the deadline in order to open up roster spots for Burks and Robinson.
- Nene’s stint in Atlanta is set to be a quick one. According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Hawks are waiving the 37-year-old center before his 2020-21 contract becomes guaranteed.
- Miami’s pursuit of players is far from finished. Along with Iguodala, the Heat are talking with the Thunder in an effort to land Danilo Gallinari. According to Wojnarowski, Miami is working with the current OKC forward to finalize a contract extension. The sticking point: preserving the Heat’s cap space in the summer of 2021.

- According to ESPN, CAA agent Leon Rose is set to replace Steve Mills as the Knicks President of Basketball Operations.

- Haynes also revealed that it is likely that Andre Drummond will remain in Detroit past the deadline.
- The Iguodala-centered trade between the Heat and Grizzlies appears to be in its final stages. According to Wojnarowski, the deal between the two teams does not include picks.
