Trade Deadline

  • Derrick Walton Jr.
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have traded Derrick Walton Jr. to the Hawks for cash.

    The Clippers were, at the time, making room for Marcus Morris. We've yet to see how this shakes out, but one thing is for certain: Walton will likely not be fantasy relevant this season.

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jacob Evans has been traded to the Timberwolves as part of the trade to acquire D'Angelo Russell.

    Evans had become an afterthought in Golden State with the improved play of both Damion Lee and Jordan Poole recently, and he would've been pressed for playing time regardless. In Minnesota, he's theoretically in a better situation, but the Wolves will likely prioritize the development on Jarrett Culver or Josh Okogie, two former first-round draft picks, and Malik beasley, a recent trade acquisition who's headed toward restricted free agency. Hell, maybe even Kelan Martin gets ahead of him. Evans is off the radar.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Omari Spellman has been traded to the Timberwolves as part of the trade to acquire D'Angelo Russell.

    Spellman joins a rapidly crowding roster with Jarred Vanderbilt, Juancho Hernangomez and Gorgui Dieng in the frontcourt, but Spellman has a chance to carve out a meaningful role in Minnesota. He's a player to watch as the Wolves turn their eye towards identifying players to keep through their rebuild.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins has been traded to the Warriors in exchange for D'Angelo Russell, Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman.

    The Wiggins era in Minnesota ends with a whimper, but this is as good a landing spot for Wiggins as he could've hoped for. Wiggins will get to play with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green while learning from one of the best head coaches in the league in Steve Kerr, who has already helped develop rehab projects like Marquese Chriss this season. He could, of course, recede into the former low-usage, Harrison Barnes-type role, but GM Bob Myers doesn't trade for players he doesn't plan to feature or at least play to their strengths. Wiggins should be able to dominate touches until Curry returns and Damion Lee is no longer the clear-cut winner of the Dubs' previous trade.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have agreed to trade D'Angelo Russell to Minnesota in exchange for Andrew Wiggins, 2021 protected first-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

    Minnesota finally gets their guy and Karl-Anthony gets to play with one of his BFFs. Russell heads into a new-look backcourt featuring two of Malik Beasley, Jarrett Culver and Josh Okogie, but his value should improve if the Wolves choose to deploy him without any restrictions the rest of the way. The potential for rest days is not as marked as it was in Golden State, either, so Russell will have a crack a strong finish. This also eliminates whatever "shutdown risk" Towns may have had, as the Wolves will want to see what they have in this young core by playing them together this season. The pick is top-3 protected in 2021 and would be unprotected if in transfer to the following year.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    According to James Ham, the Kings are not inclined to move Bogdan Bogdanovic (RFA) but will match any offers he receives over the summer.

    This makes sense from a stability point of view for the Kings. Despite his ups and downs, Bogdanovic has been able to float with solid value. In fact, he's been trending up lately, posting top-85 value in 9-cat over the last week.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jae Crowder is a late scratch on Wednesday with trade rumors surrounding him.

    Zach Lowe reported on Monday that the Grizzlies were asking for a first-round pick in a trade for Crowder. Solomon Hill is also a late scratch and Kyle Anderson got the start. Anderson may be starting but he would be a deep-league player only if Crowder is traded. De'Anthony Melton is the player who would benefit the most if minutes opened up in the Grizzlies' rotation and could be a standard-league player in only 25 minutes per game.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the trade discussions between Phoenix and Detroit for Luke Kennard have 'reached an impasse'.

    Kennard may still be traded before the deadline, although it looks like it won't be to Phoenix. Kennard should have standard-league value when he returns from injury if he's still on the Pistons. Even if he is traded he will likely be going to a team that values him and would play him enough minutes to carve out standard-league value. Kennard is worth stashing in standard leagues if he is available.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Shabazz Napier is Denver-bound after being included in an 11-player, four-team deal on Tuesday, according to Shams Charania.

    Shabazz Napier's value takes a nasty kick in the nuggets, twice. He will be backing up Jamal Murray and will see his recently rising stock come crashing down. He's a drop in standard leagues but is still worth a marginal hold in deeper formats for a wait-and-see approach after all of the dust has settled.

  • Jarred Vanderbilt
    PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Nuggets have traded Jarred Vanderbilt to the Wolves.

    Vanderbilt is one of the names who's being bounced around so that all the roster spots and salaries match up in a huge four-team deal. He has a chance to see spot minutes with the Wolves completely gutting their power forward rotation tonight — Robert Covington, Keita Bates-Diop, Noah Vonleh and Jordan Bell are all on new teams — though he's likely to play behind Juancho Hernangomez and whoever else the Wolves add between now and Thursday. He's been a strong rebounder throughout his career but has never played enough to pop on the fantasy radar. Don't expect that to change.

  • Noah Vonleh
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Noah Vonleh will head to the Nuggets as a part of Tuesday's four-team trade built around Clint Capela and Robert Covington.

    Vonleh has had a very rough go of things this season with the Wolves, losing nearly half his playing time from last season and shooting a horrific .143 from 3-point land after three straight years north of 30 percent. He'll give the Nuggets some emergency depth and may be pressed into duty in the short term with all their injuries, but Vonleh is highly unlikely to emerge as a fantasy asset.

  • Keita Bates-Diop
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Keita Bates-Diop will be traded to the Nuggets as part of Tuesday's four-team blockbuster.

    Bates-Diop is likely going to fill in as Denver's depth power forward, replacing Juancho Hernangomez. While that's not a spot with tons of playing time typically available, the Nuggets are currently without Paul Millsap and Michael Porter Jr. and had Jerami Grant get banged up in Tuesday's game. There might be short-term appeal here for deeper leagues but KBD isn't going to warrant fantasy attention when the Nuggets get healthy.

  • Jordan Bell
    PF, Houston Rockets

    The Rockets will receive Jordan Bell and a second-round draft pick as part of Tuesday's Clint Capela trade.

    The Rockets are said to be looking for a rim protector, especially in the wake of trading Capela, but Bell may be looking at backup center minutes for a team that's going to trend very small barring another big acquisition. He's averaging just 8.7 minutes this season but does have 0.4 blocks in that time, and the per-minute numbers have never been up for debate. If Bell can get on the floor for 20 minutes a night, which is a huge "if," then he might be a solid specialist play. Only time will tell but he's not a bad speculative add in 20-teamers or so.

  • Robert Covington
    SF, Houston Rockets

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Robert Covington will be making his way to the Rockets via a four-team Megadeal involving multiple players.

    This blockbuster is one for the books. Clint Capela and Nene land with the Hawks. The Rockets will also receive Jordan Bell. The Wolves will receive Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez, Evan Turner, Jarred Vanderbilt, while the Nuggets get Shabazz Napier, Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh and Keita Bates-Diop. As far as picks go, the Wolves will be receiving the Nuggets' first-round picks. As for the fantasy fallout, RoCo should be able to thrive in Houston with his 3-and-D specialty being a highly coveted skill set by coach Mike D'Antoni and his system.

  • Evan Turner
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Evan Turner has been traded to the Wolves in Tuesday's four-team trade involving the Hawks, Rockets and Nuggets.

    The Wolves had to move several players to take on Turner's $18.6 million salary, but they'll also receive a first-round pick from the Hawks (via Brooklyn) as part of the deal, and are said to be stockpiling assets as part of their larger deadline plans. ET has been largely out of the rotation this year and shouldn't expect much playing time in Minnesota, either.
