Miami Heat: Rest Of The East Still Looking Up At Them After NBA Trade Deadline
The Milwaukee Bucks also made a move, although you can’t be sure how much better it makes them.
They essentially traded Semi Ojeleye, Rodney Hood, and Donte DiVincenzo for what amounted to Serge Ibaka, two future second-round picks, and cash, as a part of a four-team deal with the Clippers, the Kings, and the Pistons.
Outside of those three major contenders, the Bulls, another contender, did nothing. The other teams in the East were pretty active though.
They received Thaddeus Young, Drew Eubanks, and a 2022 second-round pick, while the Spurs received Dragic and a protected first-rounder, which if not conveyed in either of the following two drafts, turns into two seconds.
The Celtics brought back Daniel Theis from the Rockets for Dennis Schröder, Enes Freedom, and Bruno Fernando. They also landed Derrick White from San Antonio for former Miami Heat wing, Josh Richardson, Romeo Langford, a protected 2022 first-round pick, and swap rights on their 2028 first-round picks.
They also moved Bol Bol and P.J. Dozier for a future second-rounder to Orlando.
The Hornets got a big, sort of, adding Montrezl Harrell for Ish Smith and Vernon Carey Jr., while the Wiz seem to be tearing it all down. Washington also sent Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans to Dallas for Kristaps Porzingis and a future second-round pick.
