Suns acquire Payton from Magic (Feb. 8)

Phoenix Suns receive:
G Elfrid Payton

Orlando Magic receive:
2018 second-round pick

Official release: Suns

Instant analysis: The point guard position in Phoenix has been a revolving door for a while. Payton, the No. 10 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, immediately fills that void. While he hay not be the long-term solution, the Suns will get a long look at Payton before he hits free agency this summer.

Knicks acquire Mudiay in 3-team trade (Feb. 8)

New York Knicks receive:
G Emmanuel Mudiay

Denver Nuggets receive:
G Devin Harris
2018 second-round pick

Dallas Mavericks receive:
Doug McDermott
2018 second-round pick

Official release: Knicks | Nuggets | Mavericks

Instant analysis: Emmanuel Mudiay, the No. 7 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, gets a fresh start in New York, while Devin Harris gives Denver a veteran leader for their playoff push. Doug McDermott, who will reunite with high school teammate Harrison Barnes, gives the rebuilding Mavs another deep threat.

Wade reunited with Heat (Feb. 8)

Cleveland Cavaliers receive:
2024 second-round pick

Miami Heat receive:
G Dwyane Wade

Official release: Heat | Cavaliers

Instant analysis: Dwyane Wade is back home, which is a feel-good story all around. Let's not forget, however, that Miami very much needs to be sparked out of its current five-game losing streak. The Heat now sit in seventh place in the precarious Eastern Conference. They are hopeful Wade's return will steady the ship. The Cavs, meanwhile, will likely earn points with veterans around the league who witness them granting Wade's desire to return to South Beach.

* * *

Raptors acquire Richardson from Kings (Feb. 8)

Toronto Raptors receive:
G Malachi Richardson

Sacramento Kings receive:
 Bruno Caboclo

Official release: Raptors | Kings

Instant analysis: In Richardson, the Raptors get a young player under contract from one more season. As for Caboclo, his value to Sacramento could be his expiring contract.

* * *

Cavs add Hill, Hood in trade with Jazz, Kings (Feb. 8)

Cleveland Cavaliers receive:
G George Hill
G Rodney Hood

Utah Jazz receive:
Jae Crowder
G Derrick Rose

Sacramento Kings receive:
Joe Johnson
G Iman Shumpert
2020 second-round pick

Official release: Cavaliers | Jazz | Kings

Instant analysis: This trade makes a lot of sense for the Cavs, who address their two biggest needs: defense and poor guard play. Hill is a two-way floor general who can space the floor for LeBron James, while Hood is averaging a career-best 16.8 points on 39 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

* * *

Ennis dealt from Grizzlies to Pistons (Feb. 8)

Detroit Pistons receive:
F James Ennis

Memphis Grizzlies receive:
 Brice Johnson
2022 second-round pick

Official release: Pistons | Grizzlies

Instant analysis: The Pistons have been lacking depth at the wing position, and Ennis instantly fills that void. Johnson has appeared 12 games during his two-year career and may not be in the Grizzlies’ future plans.

* * *

Cavaliers deal Thomas to Lakers (Feb. 8)

Cleveland Cavaliers receive:
G Jordan Clarkson
F Larry Nance Jr.

Los Angeles Lakers receive:
G Isaiah Thomas
Channing Frye
2018 first-round pick

Official release: Lakers | Cavaliers

Instant analysis: The move certainly makes Cleveland healthier, more athletic and better on the defensive end. The Lakers sported a defensive rating of 100.4 with those two on the floor at the same time. For context, the Spurs rank second in the league with a defensive rating of 101.2. Clarkson, however, is shooting just 32.4 percent from beyond the arc this season, while Nance is a none-threat from the perimeter. The Lakers, meanwhile, obtain a much-needed first-round pick (they do not have their own in 2018 due to the Steve Nash trade of 2012) as well as cap space they can use to pursue max-contract free agents this summer.

* * *

Bulls acquire Vonleh from Blazers (Feb. 8)

Chicago Bulls receive:
F Noah Vonleh

Portland Trail Blazers receive:
Draft rights to Milovan Rakovic (2007)

Official release: Bulls | Blazers

Instant analysis: Chicago invests in a top-10 pick from 2014 for a small price indeed: the rights to the last pick of the 2007 NBA Draft.

* * *

Hawks deal for Sheldon Mac (Feb. 8)

Atlanta Hawks receive:
G Sheldon Mac
cash considerations

Washington Wizards receive:
2019 second-round pick

Official release: Hawks | Wizards

Instant analysis: Atlanta will waive Mac, while the Wizards open up a roster spot and potentially add a second-round pick to their plans.

* * *

Nets land Pelicans' Cunningham (Feb. 8)

Brooklyn Nets receive:
F Dante Cunningham

New Orleans Pelicans receive:
G Rashad Vaughn

Official release: Nets

Instant analysis: Brooklyn adds veteran toughness to its young core, while the Pelicans take a flyer on a former first-round pick who is still just 21 years old and has shown flashes of being an NBA 3-point shooter.

* * *

Heat acquire Babbitt from Hawks (Feb. 8)

Miami Heat receive:
F Luke Babbitt

Atlanta Hawks receive:
G Okaro White

Official release: Hawks | Heat

Instant analysis: With Wade reportedly on his way back home, the Heat decided to add an extra dash of outside shooting to the mix. Babbitt is hitting 44.1 percent from beyond the arc this season. Between the slashing games of Wade and Dragic, as well as the inside presence of Hassan Whiteside, Babbitt should get plenty of open looks whenever he is on the floor. The Hawks, meanwhile, waived White to trim salary.

* * *

Pistons acquire Nelson from Bulls (Feb. 8)

Detroit Pistons receive:
Jameer Nelson

Chicago Bulls receive:
Willie Reed
Future second-round pick

Official release: Pistons

Instant analysis: The Bulls acquired Nelson from the New Orleans Pelicans last week in exchange for Nikola Mirotic. Nelson joins former coach Stan Van Gundy in Detroit, where Nelson will likely find minutes as a veteran guard off the bench. The Bulls reportedly plan to waive Reed. 

* * *

Knicks send Hernangomez to Hornets (Feb. 7)

Charlotte Hornets receive:
C Willy Hernangomez

New York Knicks receive:
C Johnny O'Bryant
2020 second-round pick
2021 second-round pick

Official release: Hornets | Knicks

Instant analysis: An All-Rookie first team selection last season, Hernangomez had fallen out of the Knicks' playing rotation in 2017-18. His move to Charlotte may give him more of a chance to play, but he'll join a frontcourt that features Dwight Howard, Frank Kaminsky, Cody Zeller and others. O'Bryant, a power forward, is averaging 4.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game this season.

Bucks boost depth with Zeller (Feb. 5)

Milwaukee Bucks receive:
C Tyler Zeller

Brooklyn Nets receive:
G Rashad Vaughn
2018 second-round pick (protected)

Official release: Bucks | Nets

Instant analysis: A modest little move by the Bucks to boost their frontcourt depth in advance of the stretch run. In exchange, the Nets will get the opportunity to jump start the flagging prospects of Vaughn, a first-round pick in 2015, while adding a second-round selection. 

* * *

Bulls trade Mirotic to Pelicans (Feb. 5)

New Orleans Pelicans receive:
F Nikola Mirotic
2018 second-round pick

Chicago Bulls receive:
C Omer Asik
G Tony Allen
G Jameer Nelson
Trade exception
2018 first-round pick (protected)

Official release: Bulls | Pelicans

Instant analysis: The Pelicans, in the wake of losing All-Star DeMarcus Cousins for the season to a torn Achilles, find some frontcourt help in the form of Mirotic. A threat from 3-point range, Mirotic has appeared in 25 games for the Bulls, averaging 16.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 42.9 percent on 3-pointers. For the Bulls, Asik returns to Chicago (where he played from 2010-12) and joins a rebuilding Bulls crew. As for Allen and Nelson, they may or may not be with the team through the Feb. 8 NBA trade deadline.

Pistons make huge move for Griffin (Jan. 30)

Detroit Pistons receive:
F Blake Griffin
C Willie Reed
F Brice Johnson

LA Clippers receive:
G Avery Bradley
F Tobias Harris
C Boban Marjanovic  
2018 first-round pick (protected)
2019 second-round pick (protected)

Official release: Pistons | Clippers

Instant analysis: With their playoff hopes rapidly dwindling after a strong start, the Pistons made a bold move to turn their season around with the acquisition of Griffin. The five-time All-Star is having another productive season, averaging 22.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and a career-high 5.4 assists per game. For the Clippers, trading their long-time draw just months after re-signing him to a massive extension -- on the heels of sending Chris Paul to the Rockets, no less -- marks a shocking turn. They're hoping the addition of two solid starters while dumping the four-plus seasons left on Griffin's deal will equate to a soft reboot, allowing them to rebuild without starting completely over.

Sixers send Okafor, Stauskas to Nets (Dec. 7)

Philadelphia 76ers receive:
F Trevor Booker

Brooklyn Nets receive:
C Jahlil Okafor
G Nik Stauskas
2019 second-round pick

Official release: Sixers | Nets

Instant analysis: Okafor wondered about his place in the Sixers' rebuilding efforts before 2017-18 got started. The former No. 3 overall pick of the 2015 Draft played in just one game for the Sixers before they dealt him and the sharp-shooting Stauskas to Brooklyn for depth in veteran forward Trevor Booker. It may be a while before he suits up with the Nets -- to get in shape as well as learn the ins and outs of his new team -- but Okafor will have chances to make up for lost time on the court. For the Sixers, Booker provides another big body to spell star center Joel Embiid and others as Philadelphia seeks to end its five-year playoff drought.

Suns send Bledsoe to Bucks for Monroe (Nov. 7)

Milwaukee Bucks receive:
G Eric Bledsoe

Phoenix Suns receive:
C Greg Monroe
Two 2018 first-round picks

Official release: Bucks | Suns

Instant analysis: It didn't take long for the Suns to move the disgruntled Bledsoe, whose "I Don't wanna be here" tweet early in 2017-18 made that much clear. From there, Phoenix got to work trying to move him and came up with what it sought -- an expiring contract (in Monroe) and picks to add to a burgeoning treasure chest of future Draft hope. In Milwaukee, Bledsoe will free up superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo from his heavy load of ball-handling and scoring duties and should help the Bucks stay in the chase for home court in the first round of the 2018 playoffs.
