2020 NBA Offseason Trades

As we did with last year’s offseason trades and the in-season swaps from 2019/20, Hoops Rumors will be keeping track of all of the trades made this offseason, right up until the start of the 2020/21 season, updating this post with each transaction.

Trades are listed here in reverse chronological order, with the latest on top. So, if a player has been traded multiple times, the first team listed as having acquired him is the one that ended up with him. If a trade has not yet been formally finalized, it will be listed at the bottom of the page under the “Unofficial” header.

    • Luke Adams

      No, it’ll be something very minor — a top-55 protected second-round pick or the rights to a draft-and-stash player who’s never going to play in the NBA.

    For the last two years everyone has been saying how the Rockets missed Ariza so badly, so it’s nice to see him back. He’s very similar to Covington, the drop in production there shouldn’t be significant plus the Rockets gets a couple of decent first round picks.

    Curious as to why so many trades have been yet to be reported as becoming official? Moratorium lifting >24 hours ago. In the past most trades are completely almost straight after this point.

    • Luke Adams

      A lot of them are interconnected (four involving the Thunder, two involving Ariza, two involving the Lakers’ second-round pick, etc.) Once a couple key ones get done, the rest should follow in short order.
