January

Veteran Anthony dealt to Bulls

Chicago Bulls receive:
F Carmelo Anthony
F Jon Diebler
Cash considerations

Houston Rockets receive:
F Tadija Dragićević

Jan. 22 | Official release:  Bulls | Rockets

Instant analysis:  Consider this move the official end of the Carmelo Anthony experiment in Houston. The Rockets moved on from Anthony months earlier, but in trading him to Chicago, the former 10-time All-Star has a chance to be bought out or waived. From there, he could latch onto a team for the playoff push. 

Diebler plays in the Turkish League and was taken 51st overall by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2011. The Rockets acquired his rights in 2012. Dragićević was the No. 53 pick in 2008 by the Utah Jazz and his rights were dealt to Chicago in 2014. He has played in several countries in his career, most recently in Spain.

Chicago Bulls receive:
G Michael Carter-Williams
Cash considerations

Houston Rockets receive:
2020 second-round pick

Jan. 7 | Official release:  Bulls | Rockets

Instant analysis:  With this move, the Rockets were able to clear a roster spot to use for undrafted rookie Danuel House. Michael Carter-Williams was subsequently waived by the Bulls before his contract became guaranteed at the end of the day on Jan. 7.

Grizzlies add guard depth

Chicago Bulls receive:
G MarShon Brooks
G Wayne Selden
2019 second-round pick
2020 second-round pick

Memphis Grizzlies receive:
G Justin Holiday

Jan. 3 | Official release:  Bulls | Grizzlies

Instant analysis:  Justin Holiday brings versatility to the Grizzlies' bench as they eye a run at the postseason. The 29-year-old guard started all 38 games for the Bulls this season with averages of 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.8 steals in 34.8 minutes.

December

Wizards add Ariza

Washington Wizards receive:
F Trevor Ariza

Phoenix Suns receive:
G Austin Rivers
G/F Kelly Oubre Jr.

Dec. 13 | Official release:  Wizards | Suns

Instant analysis:  Trevor Ariza returns to the Wizards after playing with the team from 2012-14. The veteran forward should help the Wizards space the floor with his 3-point shot, which he hit at a 36-percent clip during 26 games with Phoenix. The Suns waived veteran guard Austin Rivers on Dec. 18. Oubre Jr., a 23-year-old forward, was drafted with the No. 15 pick in 2015. He will become a restricted free agent this summer.

Cavs trade guard Hill to Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks receive:
G George Hill
C Jason Smith
2021 second-round pick

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: 
G Matthew Dellavedova
F John Henson
2021 first-round pick
2021 second-round pick

Washington Wizards receive:
F Sam Dekker

Dec. 7 | Official release:  BucksCavs | Wizards

Instant analysis:  The Bucks fortify their backcourt with the addition of Hill, a combo guard who can pass and shoot with veteran decision-making. Cleveland continues its rebuild by padding its Draft cupboard while bringing back a well-liked former Cavs player in Dellavedova. The Bucks completed a pick swap with Washington and contributed a second-rounder to Milwaukee in order to get Dekker, an athletic frontcourt player looking for a long-term home.

November

Jazz re-acquire sharpshooter Korver

Utah Jazz receive:
F Kyle Korver

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: 
Alec Burks
2020 second-round pick
2021 second-round pick

Nov. 29 | Official release:  Cavs | Jazz

Instant analysis:  At the time of the trade, the Jazz were shooting a paltry 31.9 percent on 3-pointers, which ranks 28th in the NBA. Enter Korver, a career 43.2 percent 3-point shooter and one of the best long-range shooters in NBA history. He returns to Utah, where he played from 2007-10 and was a fan favorite for a myriad of reasons. For the Cavs, they get a slashing scorer in Burks who could become a piece for their future as they navigate a difficult season. Future second-round picks don't hurt either, as they could net prospects or be used in a future trade (perhaps later this season).

Sixers acquire Butler from Wolves

Philadelphia 76ers receive:
F Jimmy Butler
C Justin Patton

Minnesota Timberwolves receive: 
F Robert Covington
F Dario Saric
G Jerryd Bayless
2022 second-round pick

Nov. 12 | Official release:  Sixers | Wolves

Instant analysis:  Butler, a four-time All-Star, is done in Minnesota after one season and 13 games into the 2018-19 campaign. He heads to Philadelphia, where he will team with All-Star Joel Embiid and reigning Kia Rookie of the Year winner Ben Simmons to give the Sixers a triumvirate not seen since Julius Erving, Moses Malone and Andrew Toney graced the court in the early 1980s. For the Wolves, the trade ends weeks of speculation and distraction while also giving them versatile, young "3-and-D" forwards Covington and Saric to pair with their stars Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns.
