NBA.com reports on the 2014 Trade Deadline, which ends on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 3 p.m. ET.
* * *
G Steve Blake
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 20) -- The Warriors pull the trigger on a trade to help deepen their guard corps and, most importantly, provide a reliable backup for All-Star guard Steph Curry. The deal for the Lakers gives them two players still on their rookie deals and allows them to continue with their rebuilding efforts.
G Marcus Thornton
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 19) -- This deal adds about $700,000 in salary and $2.7 million in luxury taxes to Brooklyn's books this season. For the Kings, both Terry and Evans have one year each remaining on their contract, which could make them valuable trade assets in the offseason or at next season's trade deadline.
2015 conditional second-round draft pick
G Roger Mason, Jr., cash consideration
Official release: Heat
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 20) -- The Kings are expected to waive Mason, Jr., who signed with the Heat in the summer. If the back-up guard is indeed waived, Mason Jr. would become eligible to sign with a team for the playoffs. The deal opens a roster spot for Miami, who could fill that spot by the March 1 buyout deadline.
C Spencer Hawes
Instant Analysis: (Feb. 20) -- After trading center Andrew Bynum in January, the Cavs bring in another big man to add to their frontcourt, which also consists of Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson. The Sixers, who are apparently stockpiling second-round picks, will receive Clark, who has a fully non-guaranteed contract for next season.
G Andre Miller
Protected 2014 second-round draft pick
F Jan Vesely
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): After beefing with head coach Brian Shaw in early January, Andre Miller hasn't played since and finds himself in a situation where he can instantly contribute on a playoff-caliber team. The Nuggets get the former No. 6 pick in the 3022 draft in Jan Vesely, who looks to get a restart after a disappointing beginning in Washington. He'll be a free agent at the end of the season. Eric Maynor fell out the rotation in Washington and joins the lowly Sixers.
G Ramon Sessions
F Jeff Adrien
Official release: Bobcats | Bucks
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): As the Bobcats gets ready for a playoff run, they pick up two guards capable of spreading the floor and making plays in Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour. Neal was having a disappointing first season in Milwaukee and looks to turn his season around. Ridnour's departure makes way for Bucks rookie Nate Wolters to get more minutes. Sessions and Adrien are both free agents this summer, which plays well into the Bucks' rebuilding plans.
F Austin Daye
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): Nando De Colo appeared in 98 games for the Spurs over the last two seasons, averaging 4.0 ppg and 2.1 apg. The member of the French national team made three starts this season while playing behind All-Star countryman Tony Parker. Austin Daye signed with Toronto last summer and appeared in just eight games. The No. 15 pick in the 2009 Draft has averaged 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in the NBA, also playing for Detroit and Memphis.
G Aaron Brooks
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): Jordan Hamilton has averaged 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 39 games for the Nuggets this season. Hamilton, who went to the University of Texas, has started 11 games this season. Aaron Brooks, a reserve point guard, was in his second stint with the Rockets. He was averaging 7.0 ppg in 43 games this season for Houston.
F Danny Granger
Second-round draft pick
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): Larry Bird, the Pacers' president, agreed to a deal sending veteran forward Danny Granger to the Philadelphia 76ers for wing Evan Turner, big LaVoy Allen and a future second-round pick. One of the East's two big dogs, one of the four A-list contenders (as of Thursday morning) to win the championship this spring -- and it wasn't enough for Larry Joe Bird, cutthroat competitor. Despite Granger's elder statesman status in their locker room, despite what seemed over 2013-14′s first half to be a pat hand, Bird felt the Pacers needed more.
F Antawn Jamison
Draft rights to G/F Cenk Akyol
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): The Atlanta Hawks, looking for more front-line help as they attempt to remain in the Eastern Conference playoff race, acquired 37-year-old forward Antawn Jamison from the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. The Clippers received the rights to shooting guard Cenk Akyol, a 2005 second-round pick now playing in Turkey.
F/C Byron Mullens
Future 2nd Round Pick
Conditional 2nd Rd Pick
Instant Analysis (Feb. 20): Byron Mullens, 25, appeared in 27 games for the Clippers this season, averaging 2.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.2 minutes per game. For his career, Mullens has appeared in 171 games (66 starts) with averages of 7.5 points and 4.3 rebounds in 18.7 minutes.
