It’s official. The 2022-23 NBA trade deadline is in the past. The following is a recap of every deal made, from newest to oldest, before Thursday’s cutoff.

2023 NBA trade deadline:

*Times are in ET

Gary Payton II heads back to Golden State (2:57 p.m.)

  • Warriors receive: Gary Payton II
  • Trail-Blazers receive: Five second-round picks

After a quick stop in Portland, the former champion will rejoin the Warriors and help revamp a depleted bench unit.

Clippers acquire Plumlee for Reggie Jackson (2:40 p.m.)

  • Clippers receive: Mason Plumlee
  • Hornets receive: Reggie Jackson, 2028 second-round pick

Los Angeles gains a back-up center in the midst of his most productive season.

Magic send Mo Bamba to Lakers for Beverley (2:32 p.m.)

  • Lakers receive: Mo Bamba
  • Magic receive: Patrick Beverley, future second-round pick, cash considerations

Lakers keep getting bigger, adding more front court depth.

Pelicans send Graham to the Spurs (2:24 p.m.)

  • Pelicans receive: Josh Richardson, four second-round picks
  • Spurs receive: Devonte’ Graham

Clippers acquire Gordon in 3-team deal (2:17 p.m.)

  • Clippers receive: Eric Gordon, Three Grizzlies second-round picks
  • Grizzlies receive: Luke Kennard
  • Rockets receive: John Wall, Danny Green, Clippers pick-swap

Eric Gordon is another proven scorer and veteran leader in the NBA and should fit in well with the Clippers. Memphis adds another three-point threat in Kennard.

Rockets and Hawks swap four players (2:10 p.m.)

  • Hawks receive: Garrison Mathews, Bruno Fernando
  • Rockets receive: Frank Kaminsky, Justin Holiday

Warriors deal Wiseman in 3-team deal (2:04 p.m.)

  • Pistons receive: James Wiseman
  • Hawks receive: Saddiq Bey
  • Warriors receive: Kevin Knox, five Hawks second-round picks

Warriors run out of patience with Wiseman and send him to a rebuilding team. Bey will benefit from having to generate less of his own shots in Atlanta.

Suns pick up Bazley from Thunder (2:01 p.m.)

  • Suns receive: Darius Bazley
  • Thunder receive: Dario Saric, second-round pick

Bazley gives the Suns front court size and offers Chris Paul another pick-and-roll lob target.

Nuggets trade Hyland to Clippers (1:57 p.m.)

  • Clippers receive: Bones Hyland
  • Nuggets receive: Two second-round picks

Hyland hadn’t seen many minutes recently, so he’ll hope to play a larger role on the Clippers, who just got rid of starting point guard Reggie Jackson.

Bucks send Hill back to Pacers (12:56 p.m.)

  • Pacers receive: George Hill
  • Bucks receive: Second-round pick

George Hill is returning to the team he spent five seasons within the early 2010’s.

76ers send Thybulle to Blazers (12:45 p.m.)

  • Blazers receive: Matisse Thybulle
  • 76ers receive: Jalen McDaniels, two second-round picks
  • Hornets receive: Svi Mykhailiuk, second-round pick

Thybulle will hope to generate more minutes for a Blazers team in need of on-ball defenders since shipping away Josh Hart and Gary Payton II. Jalen McDaniels should contribute off the bench for Philadelphia.

Lakers send Bryant to Nuggets (12:15 p.m.)

  • Lakers receive: Davon Reed, three second-round picks
  • Nuggets receive: Thomas Bryant

After acquiring Hachimura and Vanderbilt, the Lakers solved their busy frontcourt problem by sending Bryant to the Nuggets. Bryant will be the back-up center the Nuggets have needed behind Jokic.

Nets flip Jae Crowder to Bucks (12:08 p.m.)

  • Bucks receive: Jae Crowder
  • Nets receive: Five second-round picks
  • Pacers receive: Jordan Nwora, Serge Ibaka, two second-round picks

After being a part of the Kevin Durant trade, Crowder will again be able to fit the role of a lockdown three-and-D man on a championship-hopeful roster.

Thunder send Muscala to Celtics (11:56 a.m.)

  • Celtics receive: Mike Muscala
  • Thunder receive: Justin Jackson, two second-round picks

The Celtics gain size and perimeter shooting in Muscala.

Nets trade Kevin Durant to Suns (1:11 a.m.)

  • Suns receive: Kevin Durant, T.J. Warren
  • Nets receive: Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round picks, 2028 pick swap

In the biggest move of this year’s deadline, Kevin Durant will join Booker, Paul, and Ayton to lengthen Phoenix’s championship window. In return, the Nets get two promising young forwards, a proven role player on a championship team, and a haul of draft stock.

Spurs send Poeltl back to Toronto (12:55 a.m.)

  • Raptors receive: Jakob Poeltl
  • Spurs receive: Khem Birch, 2024 first-round pick, two second-round picks

Poeltl, at the time an irrelevant add-on to the Kawhi Leonard-DeMar DeRozan trade, is going back to Toronto.

Feb. 8

Knicks acquire Hart from Blazers (10:07 p.m.)

  • Knicks receive: Josh Hart
  • Blazers receive: Cam Reddish, protected 2023 first-round pick, Ryan Arcidiacono, Svi Mykhailiuk

The Knicks reunite Villanova teammates Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart while sending away three players that don’t see Thibodeau’s rotation.

Lakers offload Westbrook to Jazz in 3-team trade (8:34 p.m.)

  • Lakers receive: D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, Jarred Vanderbilt
  • T-Wolves receive: Mike Conley, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, two second-round picks, 2024 second round pick swap
  • Jazz receive: Russell Westbrook, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Damian Jones, 2027 first-round pick

Westbrook had been contributing to a toxic environment of late in the Lakers clubhouse. They receive three capable role players to rely on while they seek another championship. Conley reunites with Robert in Minnesota. The Jazz will likely buy out Westbrook.

Feb. 7

Nets trade Edwards to Kings (7:00 p.m.)

  • Nets receive: David Machineau
  • Kings receive: Kessler Edwards, cash considerations

Heat trade Dedmon to Spurs (11:27 p.m.)

  • Spurs receive: Dewayne Dedmon, second-round pick
  • Heat receive: Cash considerations

Dedmon hasn’t been producing for the Heat this season, so they wisely offload his contract.

Feb. 5

Kyrie Irving traded to Mavericks

  • Mavericks receive: Kyrie Irving
  • Nets receive: Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, 2029 first-round pick, two second-round picks

After Irving shockingly requests to be traded, four teams make offers, but the Nets pull the trigger on the Mavericks’ offer. Dinwiddie returns to his former team, Brooklyn gains a capable wing defender in Finney-Smith and doesn’t have to deal with Irving’s shenanigans anymore.

Jan. 23

Lakers acquire Hachimura from Wizards

  • Lakers receive: Rui Hachimura
  • Wizards receive: Kendrick Nunn, three second-round picks

Lakers add front court depth with Hachimura and deal multiple future picks in a win-now move.

2023 NBA trade deadline saw Jae Crowder get traded twice.
