F Jeremy Tyler
G Charles Jenkins
Cash considerations (from Warriors)
Protected second-round pick (from 76ers)
Future draft/cash considerations (from Hawks)
Official release: Hawks | 76ers | Warriors
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) By shedding both second-year players (Tyler and Jenkins) just before the deadline, Golden State sliced more than $1.5 million off its salary cap. The Warriors began the day about $1.2 million over the league's luxury tax. In return, the Hawks and Sixers take on two relatively cheap salaries while filling up the depth chart.
G Anthony Morrow
G Dahntay Jones
Official release: Hawks
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) This seems to be another move by the Hawks to build upon their cap flexibility this summer. The newly-acquired Jones gives them a strong wing defender, but his contract expires at end of season. Atlanta acquired Morrow from Brooklyn in the trade that sent Joe Johnson to the Nets. Morrow, slowed by right hip and back injuries, averaged 5.2 points in only 24 games with the Hawks. If healthy, he gives the Mavs a tremendous 3-point shooter.
Trail Blazers get:
G Eric Maynor
F Georgios Printezis
Official release: Trail Blazers | Thunder
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) Portland's lean bench gets a little more weight with the addition of capable point guard Eric Maynor, who lost his spot in the Thunder's rotation earlier this season. Maynor is making $2.3 million this season and becomes a restricted free agent this summer. To make room for Maynor, the Trail Blazers cut guard Ronnie Price.
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) Telfair lost his rotation spot to Kendall Marshall when Lindsey Hunter stepped into the head coaching role. The Raptors strengthened a point guard spot left weakened by Jose Calderon's trade to the Pistons. Phoenix gets bigger - and shed some contractual weight - by adding center Haddadi.
F Ronnie Brewer
2014 second-round pick
Official release: Knicks | Thunder
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) Ronnie Brewer was the starting small forward for the Knicks' hot start out the season's gates. But he lost his spot and eventually fell out the rotation once Iman Shumpert came back from knee surgery. The Knicks moved him to clear room for power forward Kenyon Martin, who fills a vacancy that injured big men Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby left. The Thunder, on the other hand, get a versatile defender with playoff experience.
C Dexter Pittman
2013 second-round draft pick
F Ricky Sanchez
Official release: Heat | Grizzlies
Instant Analysis: (Feb 21) The Heat's dealing of Pittman clears an extra roster spot as the season draws closer to the playoffs. Having the extra spot could allow Miami to add someone later this season, possibly another inside player to get minutes now or a project for future years. Last season, Miami used roster flexibility to add Ronny Turiaf for a playoff push.
G J.J. Redick
C Gustavo Ayon
G Ish Smith
F Tobias Harris
G Doron Lamb
Official release: Magic | Bucks
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) Orlando sends sharpshooter Redick, a career 39.8 3-point shooter, to the Bucks for two young prospects in Harris and Lamb. With his three-year, $19 million contract ending, Redick is likely to seeking a long-term deal this summer when he becomes a free agent. That apparently wasn't something the Magic were willing to commit to. The Magic also pick up a true backup point guard in Udrih to play behind veteran Jameer Nelson.
F Josh McRoberts
F Hakim Warrick
Official release: Bobcats | Magic
Instant Analysis: (Feb 21) The 6-foot-10 McRoberts has played in 41 games this season with three starts and is averaging 3.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. This is the second time Warrick has been traded this season, the first earlier this season in a trade with the New Orleans Hornets. Since joining the Bobcats he has averaged 6.9 points per game and 3.2 rebounds, but his playing time has diminished in recent weeks.
G Jordan Crawford
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) The Wizards part ways with Crawford, who had become frustrated with his role with the return of John Wall to the lineup. He will bring a scoring punch to the Celtics' backcourt, which lost both Rajon Rondo and Leandro Barbosa to season-ending injuries. The Wizards acquire the expiring contracts of Barbosa and Collins, which will free up cap space this summer.
F Marcus Morris
2013 second-round draft pick
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 21) The Rockets continue to clear cap room in an effort to pursue top free agents this summer. For the Suns, they receive Morris, a 6-foot-9 power forward who is averaging 8.6 points, 4.1 rebounds a game this season. After starring together at Kansas, Morris joins his twin brother Markieff, who is averaging 7.3 points and 4.3 rebounds a game, to become the second set of twins to play for the Suns.
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 20) The Rockets take a nice gamble with Thomas Robinson, who still has a very high ceiling after being selected fifth overall in the 2012 NBA Draft. Robinson was averaging just 16 minutes per game, so maybe he'll get to see the floor a bit more in the Rockets' high-octane offense. Patterson could be a nice piece for the Kings, having started 38 games for Houston this season and was the Rockets' fourth-leading scorer at 11.6 points.
Hang Time blog: Trade details
Instant Analysis: (Jan. 30) The Grizzlies were facing a luxury tax nightmare with the sizable contracts of Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley and Rudy Gay on the books. With the new CBA deal, many teams are taking precautions to adjust to the economics of the NBA. By dealing Gay, the Grizzlies rid themselves of tax penalties. But they also potentially cost themselves a chance at the title this season. In return, Tayshaun Prince brings solid defense, championship experience and a dependable 3-point shot. Ed Davis brings young legs and energy to the frontcourt and Austin Daye brings length, youth and outside shooting.
Official release: Cavaliers | Grizzlies
Instant Analysis: (Jan. 22) The Grizzlies get under the cap with this trade, jettisoning three contracts and getting one back in return. In the short term, they lose a shooter (Wayne Ellington) off the bench and a big man (Speights) who stepped in often to spell Randolph and Gasol. Selby was barely getting minutes as a Grizzly. Memphis cleared about $6 million with this trade. On the other side, the Cavs acquired three tradable assets, allowing them to maintain cap flexibility to further the rebuilding process. They also get a boost to a frontcourt that took a hit when leading rebounder Anderson Varejao went down. Speights is an immediate help, while Ellington and Selby add to their depth.
