article imageNBA: Trades aplenty coming at today's deadline

By Kristofor Molson     Feb 24, 2011 in Sports
Most people thought that the Carmelo Anthony trade was going to be the biggest deal this season. Then you get the Deron Williams trade to the New Jersey Nets, and at the NBA trade deadline more pieces get moved just in time for the playoff race.
The Los Angeles Clippers will not be making much noise this season, but are looking towards the future to get younger and healthier in the process. They have traded Baron Davis and a first round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers this morning for Jamario Moon and Mo Williams.
The Boston Celtics have also made a move that includes a player that was considered a valuable asset for their team and their run to the NBA Finals this year. They have traded Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for one of their captains Jeff Green and Nenad Kristic.
Jeff Green was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the 2007 NBA Draft, but traded to the then Seattle Supersonics for Ray Allen and Glen Davis. He has now come back to the Celtics where he will probably finish his career.
The Oklahoma City Thunder must be looking to get bigger because a few minutes later they traded for another big man in Nazr Mohammed. OKC sent D.J. White and Mo Peterson to the Charlotte Bobcats for Mohammed.
OKC is not the only team that made to separate deals to try and improve their team. The Houston Rockets made to deals as well, sending Shane Battier back to Memphis Grizzlies for Hasheem Thabeet and a first round draft pick.
They then sent disgruntled point guard Aaron Brooks to the Phoenix Suns for Goran Dragic.
The Charlotte Bobcats sent out one of their current superstars in Gerald Wallace to the Portland Trailblazers for Joel Przybilla and Dante Cunningham.
There was a deal that would have sent Josh McRoberts and a first round pick from the Indian Pacers to the Memphis Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo. The deal fell through at the last minute with the Indiana Pacers backing out.
The NBA trade deadline was 3 p.m. eastern standard time, but if the teams are making deals or had a deal in place before the deadline then deals can still be made. So just because the 3 p.m. struck does not mean their will not be deals still announced the rest of the day.
