Now that the NBA trade deadline has officially passed, we have confirmation as to whee everyone will be playing. The deadline certainly did not live up to the hype that most analysts had fans waiting on pins and needles for this past week. There were no superstars traded; no Dwight Howard to Los Angeles or anywhere else. Speaking of the Lakers, they seemed to be the most active in trading, but no Pao Gasol was not involved.
1. Dwight Howard- staying with Orlando Magic through the 2012-2013 season. This translates into we will all have to endure another year of is he or isn’t he going to stay in Orlando.
2. Cleveland sent Ramon Sessions and Christen Eyenga to the Lakers for Luke Walton and a first round draft pick.
3. The Warriors and Spurs swapped Richard Jefferson and Stephen Jackson.
4. The Portland Trail Blazers- sent Gerard Wallace to New Jersey and sent Marcus Camby to the Houston Rockets for Johnny Flynn. Hasheem Thabeet, and a second round pick.
5. The Pacers got Leandro Barbosa from the Raptors for a second round draft pick.
6. Memphis sent Sam Young to Philadelphia for a second round draft pick.
7. The Lakers sent veteran Derek Fisher and a first round pick to Houston for Jordan Hill.
8. The Nuggets, Clippers, and Wizards have a three-team trade that includes sending Nick Young to Los Angeles, Nene and Brian Cook to Washington, and JaVale McGee to Denver.
