Many Trade Acquisitions No Longer With Teams

The November 10th deal that sent Mario Chalmers to the Grizzlies came remarkably early in the NBA season, and its effects lingered for a remarkably short period of time. All four players involved in the swap are no longer with their respective teams, now that Memphis has waived Chalmers to create roster room after he tore his Achilles tendon. In fact, none of those four are on any NBA roster, as all of them have cleared waivers at one point or another since the trade.

They’re among the 12 players acquired via trade this season who are no longer with the teams that traded for them. Some worked buyout deals with their new clubs. Others wound up in subsequent trades, including Jarnell Stokes, who was in that Chalmers deal and in another swap on deadline day. Only 29 players were traded in the time between opening night and the deadline, not counting the rights to draft-and-stash prospects. That means 41.4% of this season’s trade acquisitions didn’t even last to the middle of March.

Here’s a look at all the in-season trade acquisitions who are no longer with the teams that traded for them:
