Article Summary:

OKC adds to its hoard of future draft picks and the Knicks pick up a young athlete in Ferguson who could compete for wing minutes. Mavs add shooting

  • Mavericks get: JJ Redick, Nicolo Melli
  • Pelicans get: James Johnson, Wes Iwundu, second-round pick, cash

Redick seemed destined for the buyout market, where the Brooklyn Nets were expected to pounce like a starving puppy, but instead Dallas ponied up a second-round pick to get one of the best 3-point shooters in NBA history. Considering the reported price for Gordon involved two first-round picks and/or Marcus Smart, the Celtics made a shrewd decision by getting Fournier for two second-round picks and Teague, who had been in and out of the rotation all season.

2. Heat snag Oladipo at last second

  • Heat get: Victor Oladipo
  • Rockets get: Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley, pick swap

It looked as if Oladipo might make it through the trade deadline remaining a member of the Houston Rockets, but lo and behold the news trickled in late that the Heat had swooped up the former All-Star for a bag of jelly beans and the lint in Pat Riley’s pocket Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley and a future pick swap.
