The NBA trade deadline is usually filled with a lot of talk and not a whole lot of action.  Constant checking of favorite blogs, forums, websites, and social media are the norm for fans that are trying to keep up with the latest and greatest in rumors and actual deals going down.  This year's trade deadline was more of the same, but with a lot more action.  Check out this listing of the trades that went down. 

Follow me after the jump to get my thoughts on the trade deadline frenzy.

  • Houston is sitting at 28-31, four games behind Memphis for the 8th and final playoff spot in the West.  Instead of making deals to make a push for the playoffs, they made moves that will most assuredly push them down in the standings, giving them a much better lottery pick.  Grabbing two extra first round picks, Hasheem Thabeet, DeMarre Carroll, and Goran Dragic while giving up Shane Battier, Aaron Brooks, and Ishmael Smith is a good start on that descent down the standings.  Does the addition of Thabeet mean that Yao is gone after this season? 
  • http://www.arinitout.com/assets_c/2011/02/throwing_darts_blind-thumb-250x133-13620.jpgBoston made some weird moves.  They acquired Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, and two 2nd round picks, one being for 2017?!  In the process, they gave up Kendrick Perkins, Nate Robinson, Luke Harangody, and Semih Erden.  If Boston ends up winning, then Danny Ainge will look like a genius, but if Boston doesn't win the championship, then people will immediately turn to these trades and offer him up to the Tea Gods quicker than you can say Crispus Attucks! (Side note: that is all of the Boston history references I will ever use)
  • Oklahoma City came out smelling like roses and a possible future NBA championship team with their deals.  Picking up Kendrick Perkins, Nate Robinson, and Nazr Mohammed while giving up a guy they didn't plan on extending (Green) and three guys that aren't going to hurt the team by being dealt.  If you look at the lineup for OKC, you will notice Ibaka, Sefalosha, and Perkins - three very good defenders.  With the added offensive firepower from Nate Robinson off the bench, Sam Presti has my vote for GM of the year right now.
  • http://www.arinitout.com/img/michael-heisley.jpgMy beloved Pacers managed to spread a lot of excitement (panic for me) with the announcement that OJ Mayo was coming to town.  They were reportedly giving up Josh McRoberts and a 1st round pick for him.  The deal didn't make any sense as it left Indiana very thin up front and even more loaded on the wings.  Thankfully, the deal was finalized too late (oops!) and it did not go through.  The Grizzlies owner, Michael Heisley had some nice things to say about that!  If you don't want to be a laughing stock in the NBA, missing the deadline to finalize a trade is not the way you go about correcting that.
  • One of my favorite players of all-time, Mike Bibby, was traded to Washington, or as I like to call it, Basketball Purgatory.  Along with Bibby, the Wizards received a 1st round pick, Jordan (not Jamal) Crawford, and Maurice Evans.  The Wizards only had to give up Kirk Hinrich's ridiculously large salary and Hilton Armstrong, complete with worthless post moves.  Washington won this deal due to the pick and getting rid of the salary of Hinrich.
  • Outside of OKC (and Jazz earlier in the week), the Blazers were the biggest winners on the day by acquiring Gerald Wallace.  I am excited to see how his skill set will fit in with the Blazers' style of play.
There were other trades completed as well, like the Carmelo to the Knicks trade and the Williams to the Nets trade, but I don't have much to say about them, other than the Nuggets and the Jazz won those deals.  Both teams gained assets and got rid of players they knew did not want to stick around.  Lessons learned from this past summer's free agency frenzy no doubt.
