NBA Trade Deadline Report: Celtics trade Daniel Theis to Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have acquired center Daniel Theis in a trade with the Boston Celtics, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Bulls will send Moritz Wagner to the Celtics. Wagner was reportedly acquired in a trade with the Washington Wizards earlier on Thursday.

Theis, a 28-year-old center, has played the first four seasons of his NBA career with Boston. This season, he’s averaging a career-high 9.5 points to go with 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

Wagner, a 23-year-old center, was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 25th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. He’s averaging 7.1 points and 2.9 rebounds over 25 games this season.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Spurs to buyout LaMarcus Aldridge 

LaMarcus Aldridge’s time with the San Antonio Spurs will end with a buyout. Per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, the Spurs are moving forward with a buyout after they couldn’t find a trade partner for Aldridge.

Once the buyout becomes official, Aldridge will be a free agent who can sign with any team. Aldridge, 35, was averaging 13.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists before being held out of games starting March 10 as the Spurs explored trade options.

He’s been a great teammate. No problem there,” San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters when announcing the move. “We just think this is a win-win for both LaMarcus and the club. When an opportunity arises, that’ll be up to management, his agent, and that sort of thing, and we’ll all move forward.”

Aldridge’s tenure in San Antonio was up and down itself, including a trade demand in 2017. The two sides met and hashed out their issues at the time, which resulted in the player signing a three-year extension to stay with the team.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Kyle Lowry staying with the Raptors

Shams Charania talks trade market for Raptors' Kyle Lowry, Norman Powell

Kyle Lowry isn’t going anywhere.

Despite rampant speculation that he might be traded ahead of the NBA’s trade deadline, the Toronto Raptors veteran point guard is staying put, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Toronto was “seriously engaged” in trade talks with the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, and Los Angeles Lakers ahead of Thursday’s deadline, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The 35-year-old has been a member of the Raptors since the 2012-13 season after the Houston Rockets traded him to Toronto for a first-round pick in the offseason. Lowry has thrived in Toronto and has been selected to six All-Star teams during his time with the organization. He also famously helped lead the organization to its first-ever title in the 2018-19 campaign.

He was excellent last year, picking up some of the scoring slack with Kawhi Leonard now in Los Angeles by averaging 19.4 points to go along with 7.5 assists and 1.4 steals per game. He shot 41.6 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from three.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Chicago Bulls to land Nikola Vucevic

An All-Star is on the move.

According to reports from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Chicago Bulls have acquired Nikola Vucevic and Al-Farouq Aminu from the Orlando Magic in exchange for Otto Porter, Wendell Carter Jr., and two first-round picks.

In Vucevic, Chicago gets another All-Star to pair alongside Zach LaVine, who earned the first All-Star selection of his career this year. Through 44 games, Vucevic is averaging a career-high 24.5 points to go along with 11.8 rebounds while shooting 48.0 percent from the field and 40.6 percent from beyond the arc.

It’s a win-now move for the Bulls, who entered the day with a 1.5-game hold on the East’s final play-in spot. Vucevic, who signed a four-year, $100 million deal with Orlando in 2019, is under contract through the 2022-23 season.

According to Wojnarowski, Chicago might not be done dealing, as its eyes remain set on acquiring New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball. He added that this move signifies the beginning of a rebuild for Orlando, which is now looking for a destination for forwarding Aaron Gordon.

The Magic now has a young center in Carter, who is averaging 10.9 points and 7.8 rebounds in his third NBA season. Carter, who turns 22 in a few weeks, fits the development timeline of other Magic core pieces like Jonathan Isaac, Mo Bamba, Markelle Fultz, Chuma Okeke, and Cole Anthony.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Denver Nuggets to receive Aaron Gordon

The Magic aren’t done dealing, as The Athletic’s Shams Charania and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski have reported that they are sending Aaron Gordon and Gary Clark to the Nuggets in exchange for Gary Harris, RJ Hampton, and a first-round pick.

Gordon, 25, recently expressed his frustration with Magic management about the team’s recent losing ways and the writing was on the wall for an imminent trade. Despite missing time due to injury this season, Gordon is averaging 14.6 points and 6.6 rebounds in 25 games (all starts).

NBA 2020-21: Aaron Gordon set to join Denver Nuggets as Orlando Magic agree to deal 

In his seventh NBA season, Gordon now joins a Nuggets team that is in prime position to move towards the top half of the Western Conference after a rough start to the season as they trail the injury-riddled Los Angeles Lakers by two games in the standings entering the day.

Gordon brings athleticism and defense and fits the timeline of a young core that revolves around Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, and Michael Porter Jr.

Orlando continues to build draft capital and stock up young talent for the future, acquiring a future first-round pick and a 2020 first-round pick in RJ Hampton, who struggled to find time in Denver’s loaded backcourt. Widely considered a top high school recruit by many just two years ago, the 20-year-old Hampton will fit right in with the Magic’s recent youth movement.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Toronto Raptors send Norman Powell to Trail Blazers

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Toronto Raptors have agreed to send Powell to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood.

Powell, who was acquired by the Raptors on draft night in 2015, is in the midst of the best year of his career. Through 42 games (31 starts), the 27-year-old is averaging 19.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals while shooting 49.8 percent from the field, 43.9 percent from the 3-point range, and 86.5 percent from the charity stripe.

Powell is expected to decline his player option for the 2021-22 season to become an unrestricted free agent.

The 22-year-old Trent is averaging 15.0 points and 2.2 rebounds while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from beyond the arc through 41 games this season (23 starts). He’s on the third and final year of his rookie-scale contract and will be a restricted free agent this offseason.

Hood, 28, is back in action after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles sustained early in the 2019-20 season. Through 38 games this season (five starts), Hood has averaged 4.7 points while shooting 36.3 percent from the field.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: LA Clippers add Rajon Rondo

The Clippers have found a point guard.

According to reports from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania, LA is reportedly set to acquire Rajon Rondo in exchange for Lou Williams, two second-round picks, and cash considerations.

Rondo, who signed with Atlanta in the 2020 offseason, has averaged 3.9 points and 3.5 assists in just under 15 minutes of action over 27 games with the Hawks this season.

For the Clippers, this is a movie with the playoffs in mind, as Rondo is less than a year removed from averaging 8.7 points, 5.5 assists, and 5.2 rebounds over six games as the Lakers captured the 2020 NBA title.

This answers a major need for the Clippers, who needed to improve upon their guard depth outside of Patrick Beverley and Reggie Jackson. With Rondo, LA gets a floor general that will show his true value once the postseason comes around.

It’s a homecoming for Lou Williams, who, in 2005, was drafted out of South Gwinnett High School, located less than an hour away from State Farm Arena. The three-time Sixth Man of the Year is averaging 12.1 points and 3.4 assists through 42 games this season (three starts).

Atlanta entered the day at 22-22 and is looking to make a push for its first postseason berth since the 2016-17 season.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Boston Celtics acquire Evan Fournier

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic’s Shams Charania have reported that the Boston Celtics have acquired Evan Fournier from the Orlando Magic in exchange for two second-round picks.

Fournier, who is on the final year of a five-year $85 million deal signed in 2016, is averaging 19.7 points through 26 games this season.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, this deal creates a $17.15 million trade exception with the deal, simultaneously decreasing the Celtics’ record trade exception from $28.5 million to $11.05 million.

Thus continues the dealing for the Magic, who have now reportedly traded their top two scorers this season while the Celtics add a much-needed scoring punch as they look to move back up in the standings.

Boston entered the day at 21-23 and in sole possession of the East’s No. 8 seed.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Philadelphia 76ers engage in a three-team deal

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers are set to bring in George Hill in a deal that sends Austin Rivers and Tony Bradley to the Thunder, while the Knicks acquire Terrance Ferguson.

Hill finds himself back on a contender with Philadelphia after spending the last two postseasons with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Hill, who turns 34 ahead of the playoffs, averaged 11.8 and 3.1 assists in 14 games with the Thunder this season (all starts); he brings heady guard play and leadership to a Sixers team that maintains their hold on the East’s No. 1 seed and looks to make a deep postseason run.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Miami Heat acquire Nemanja Bjelica

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Heat are set to acquire Nemanja Bjelica from the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Moe Harkless and Chris Silva.

In Bjelica, Miami picks up a 6-foot-10 forward that is a career 38.8 percent shooter from beyond the arc. Bjelica, who will turn 33 before the season’s end, is currently having the worst shooting season of his career.

Since moving to a full-time reserve role with the Kings, Bjelica is shooting just 29.3 percent from deep after connecting on 41.1 percent of his 3s in the previous two seasons.

An increased role in Miami could get Bjelica back to his rhythm with a team that heavily relies on shot-making for its offense to flow.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Denver Nuggets acquire JaVale McGee

The Denver Nuggets are finalizing a deal to acquire JaVale McGee from the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Mike Singer of the Denver Post first reported that the Cavaliers would acquire Isaiah Hartenstein in return and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski added that Cleveland would also acquire two future protected second-round picks.

McGee, 33, averaged 8.0 points and 5.2 rebounds through his first 33 games with Cleveland this season. It’s a reunion for the 7-footer, who appeared in 121 games with the Nuggets from 2011-15.

McGee returns to Denver as a three-time champion after winning titles with the Golden State Warriors in 2017 and 2018 and the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020.

McGee adds frontcourt depth to a Denver team that entered the deadline ranked 20th in rebounds per game and 25th in blocks per game. He’ll back up MVP candidate Nikola Jokic, who leads the team with 35.7 minutes per game.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons swap guards

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pistons have acquired Cory Joseph and two second-round picks from the Kings in exchange for Delon Wright.

Wright, who is averaging a career-high 10.4 points per through 36 games (31 starts) this season, will join a Kings backcourt that already features De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, and standout rookie Tyrese Haliburton.

A 6-foot-5 combo guard, Wright has the capability of sharing the backcourt with any of Sacramento’s talented guards and will likely do so in a reserve role.

Entering the day of the trade deadline, the Kings were three games back of the West’s final play-in spot and the team could be positioning itself for a run to end a 15-year postseason drought.

Detroit, on the other hand, is the owner of the East’s worst record. The Pistons bring in Joseph, who reunites with former head coach Dwane Casey, with whom he spent two years as a member of the Toronto Raptors.

Joseph, a 10-year veteran, and former NBA champion has been the consummate heady guard throughout his career and can serve as a mentor for young Pistons guards like Killian Hayes, Frank Jackson, Saben Lee, and Dennis Smith Jr.

NBA Trade Deadline Report: Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards make a deal

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wizards are trading Troy Brown and Mo Wagner to the Bulls in exchange for Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchison.
