The balance of power didn’t change in the NBA after the end of the trade deadline. While the Miami Heat managed to get Andre Iguodala but not also Danilo Gallinari, the only other significant move made by a contender was a three-way trade with Marcus Morris going to the LA Clippers, according to various US media reports.

The Clippers, Knicks, and Wizards have agreed to a three-team trade that will send Morris and Isaiah Thomas to the Clippers. Jerome Robinson will join the Wizards, while the Knicks will receive Moe Harkless and a 2020 first-round draft pick, according to sources. The Clippers plan to waive Thomas.

The Golden State Warriors have agreed to trade D’Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a deal that includes Andrew Wiggins. The Warriors also get a 2021 protected first-round draft pick and a 2021 second-round pick and will send Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman to the Timberwolves.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons will get John Henson, Brandon Knight, and a second-round draft pick in 2023.

The trade of Clint Capela to Atlanta remains the most significant move that involves an established European player in the league, and with him on board, the Hawks traded Ukrainian center Alex Len and forward Jabari Parker to Sacramento Kings for big man Dewayne Dedmon.
