The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, leaving many teams in the midst of a playoff push with new additions to their rosters. While there were plenty of rumors circulating about big-name players potentially being on the move, the likes of Dejounte Murray, Kyle Kuzma, and DeMar DeRozan ultimately remained with their respective teams.
However, that doesn’t mean that the deadline was devoid of action. The New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Oklahoma City Thunder were among the most active teams leading up to the deadline.
The Knicks, who have been surprising many this season with their strong play, made a couple of significant moves. They managed to acquire Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks from the Detroit Pistons, bolstering their perimeter scoring and providing additional depth for their playoff push.
The 76ers, who have been considered contenders in the Eastern Conference, made a move to further strengthen their shooting. They landed sharpshooter Buddy Hield from the Indiana Pacers, adding another lethal weapon to their already talented roster.
Meanwhile, the Thunder, who are in the midst of a rebuild, picked up veteran Gordon Hayward from the Charlotte Hornets. Hayward brings valuable experience and scoring ability to a young Thunder team looking to develop their budding talent.
Throughout the trade deadline period, CBS Sports provided a comprehensive tracker of all the trades that took place. The tracker includes deals made on February 8 and February 7, ensuring that fans and analysts alike can stay up to date with all the latest transactions.
With the trade deadline now behind us, it remains to be seen how these moves will impact the playoff race. Teams like the Knicks, 76ers, and Thunder are hoping that their acquisitions will provide the necessary boost to secure their spots in the postseason. As the regular season winds down, basketball fans around the world will eagerly watch to see which teams come out on top.
