And there you have it. Cleveland made the most noise at the deadline, overturning about a third of their roster, while acquiring Rodney Hood and George Hill. The Jazz made out good with Jae Crowder, who will be a fantastic fit into Quin Snyder’s system. Jae is also on a very favorable deal for one more season. Buying out Rose could free up a roster spot for the Jazz to pick up another player that ends up being bought out.

Detroit was another notably active team, acquiring Blake Griffin, Jameer Nelson, and James Ennis. Does this give them enough firepower to make the playoffs?

Aside from the Cleveland moves today, everything else was fairly quiet. Some young point guards found fresh starts, Portland got under the Luxury Tax, the Lakers made a little cap space for potential big free agent signings, and some role players moved around. Not many first-round picks were moved. Per Woj, “First-rounders have never been gripped so tightly in the league”.

Who were the winners of this trade season? Who were the losers? Will Cleveland challenge Golden State once again, or will they have a difficult time finding the necessary chemistry in the next two months to make a deep playoff run? For now, we wait and we watch.
