2019 NBA Trade Deadline Recap

After weeks of speculation suggesting that it might be a quiet 2019 trade deadline, we ended up getting just the opposite. Fourteen trades were completed today, with eight more having been finalized since January 31.

The deadline was still quiet for some contenders — the Warriors, Nuggets, Thunder, Spurs, and Jazz were among the clubs that didn’t make a pre-deadline deal. And, of course, the Pelicans elected to hang onto Anthony Davis until at least the offseason.

Still, this year’s deadline gave us a ton to keep track of. We’ll attempt to do just that, as our recap of all of 2019’s deadline deals can be found below, starting with the moves completed today…

    I don’t know how you do it, Mr. Adams. So many trades, going on at once. One of the Funnest deadlines in a while, and AD didn’t even get traded haha. I salute you.

    If I may add one thing; Knicks were (half) posturing:
