Three Biggest NBA Trades 2019

A look at the biggest trades that crossed the finish line before the NBA trade deadline this season.

Tobias Harris To Philadelphia – February 6th

It’s not often that you see a team who is contending for a playoff position trade their best player, but that’s exactly what the Los Angeles Clippers did this year. The Clippers are currently in 8th place, the last playoff qualifying spot in the Western Conference. Instead of strengthening for the postseason, the Clippers traded Tobias Harris to the 76ers. Harris is averaging 20.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game, and was leading the Clippers in both statistics this season. Harris joins the 76ers, who sit 4th in the Eastern Conference, but have received a major upgrade with this trade.

Philadelphia 76ers receive:

Tobias Harris (Forward)
Boban Marjanovic (Center)
Mike Scott (Forward)

Los Angeles Clippers receive:

Wilson Chandler (Forward)
Mike Muscala (Forward/Center)
Landry Shamet (Guard)
2020 first-round pick
2021 first-round pick
Two future second-round picks (2022, 2023)

Kristaps Porzingis To DallasJanuary 31st

The Mavericks and Knicks locked up a deal to send All-Star Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas, joining fellow European talent Luka Doncic. The Knicks moved their biggest, most valuable asset to make room for two max players this summer, with Knicks management arguing that Porzingis was not bought in to the future and vision that was set for the Knicks. Porzingis is currently nursing a torn ACL back to full health, and could be back on the court within the next 2-3 months. Porzingis brings unique scoring ability to Dallas, and was averaging 22.7 points per game last season.

Dallas Mavericks receive:

Kristaps Porzingis (Forward)
Tim Hardaway, Jr. (Guard)
Courtney Lee (Guard)
Trey Burke (Guard)

New York Knicks receive:

DeAndre Jordan (Center)
Dennis Smith, Jr. (Guard)
Wesley Matthews (Guard/Forward)
Two future first-round picks

Harrison Barnes to Sacramento – February 6th

The Kings made an impactful move on Wednesday night, trading for Harrison Barnes. Barnes is in his seventh season, and has proven that he can be a consistent scorer, averaging 17.7 points this season for the Mavericks. Sacramento looks to be aiming for a playoff spot. The Kings currently sit 9th place in the west, just 1.5 games back from the Clippers, who have just traded away their most productive player. Expect this Kings team to be dangerous come the end of the season, as they have built a young, high scoring team.

Sacramento Kings receive:
Harrison Barnes (Forward)

Dallas Mavericks receive:

Justin Jackson (Guard)
Zach Randolph  (Forward)
