The NBA (National Basketball Association) deadline for trading players has come to an end. Like it is every year in the NBA, many amazing and game-changing trades were made. One trade was between the Indiana Pacers and the Sacramento Kings. The trade included Domantas Sabonis, Jeremy Lamb, and Justin Holiday. A second-round pick from the Indiana Pacers also went to the Sacramento Kings. The Kings benefited by getting Sabonis who plays very well in the paint, and, in return, the Pacers received Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield, and Tristan Thompson. One other very popular trade was between the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia Seventy Sixers (also known as the Sixers). The Sixers were seeking James Harden, who played for the Nets, for a significant amount of time. The Nets were finally open to conversation and they agreed to a trade. The Sixers received all-star James Harden, who plays really well with Joel Embiied, a player on the sixers. They are a dynamic duo. In return, the Nets received two future first-round picks, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond, to go along with all-star Ben Simmons. This trade was very beneficial because Ben Simmons is a great perimeter defender. All in all, these trades will make a big impact on the game and hopefully teams will start improving.
