    • The Suns have sent T.J. Warren and the No. 32 pick to the Pacers for cash considerations.

    • Per Jackie MacMullan, the Celtics were pushing hard to trade for the No. 4 pick before it went to the Hawks. Hate to see it.

Prior to Thursday

  • News
    • The Lakers have sent Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, the No. 4 pick, a 2021 protected first-round pick, and two future unprotected first-round picks to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis.
    • The Jazz have sent Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen, the No. 23 pick, and a 2020 protected first-round pick to the Grizzlies for Mike Conley.

  • Rumors
    • There has been heavy suggestions that the Pelicans are dangling the No. 4 pick in exchange for a proven, quality young player. They have also been using the No. 4 pick to aggressively leapfrog the Knicks and nab R.J. Barrett, however it will be unlikely that the Grizzlies will be swayed from their spot.
