Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports broke a last-second deadline deal, with the Spurs and Raptors trading bench players:


3:01 p.m.: No Clippers-Knicks deal

The NBA trade deadline has passed and it appears one of the biggest rumors of the day will not come to fruition.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, the rumored Knicks-Clippers trade involving Iman Shumpert and Darren Collison is officially dead.

2:56 p.m.: Jamison to the Hawks

We have a trade! Not one with any title implications, but a trade nonetheless. Via Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com:


2:53 p.m.: Clips, Knicks talking down to the wire

The Clippers and Knicks continue to discuss a trade centered on an Iman Shumpert-for-Darren Collison swap. From Marc Stein of ESPN.com:


2:51 p.m.: Several teams staying quiet

Sam Amick of USA Today reports that several teams that were expected to be busy at the trade deadline are standing pat:

 With less than an hour left to go, the crickets continued to be heard around most of the league. I'm told all is quiet for - among many others, I'm sure - the Chicago Bulls, Memphis Grizzlies, Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, and New Orleans Pelicans.


2:46 p.m.: Lakers talking to 76ers about ...

Pau Gasol? No. The Lakers are reportedly discussing a trade with the 76ers involving Chris Kaman. Via Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com:


2:43 p.m.: Clippers swooping in on Shumpert?

With the news that Iman Shumpert is expected to miss only two weeks with a sprained MCL, the Clippers are reportedly taking a last-second look. Via Marc Stein of ESPN.com:


2:39 p.m.: Gasol staying a Laker

The Lakers are being aggressive at the trade deadline, but Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that they are unlikely to move their most attractive trade chip:


2:28 p.m.: Celtics unlikely to trade

Don't expect any last-second deadline deals from the Celtics, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com:


2:23 p.m.: Warriors shopping Crawford late

After trading for guard Steve Blake last night, the Warriors are reportedly trying to unload guard Jordan Crawford, who has been largely ineffective since coming over from the Celtics a few weeks ago. Via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:


2:17 p.m.: Lakers might hold on to Hill

Los Angeles has been trying to unload Jordan Hill in hopes of cutting its luxury tax bill. That pursuit is going down to the wire, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports:


2:13 p.m.: Cavs want too much for Deng

Cleveland's hopes of trading Luol Deng appear to be fading. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:


2:07 p.m.: Jarrett Jack staying put?

The signing of Jarrett Jack hasn't worked out as expected for the Cavaliers this season. But after trying to move the veteran guard at the deadline, it appears he's staying put. Via Ken Berger of CBS Sports:

The Cleveland Plain Dealer dishes on what might be holding up the trade:


1:44 p.m.: Nuggets ship Hamilton to Houston for Brooks

It appears the Knicks can't even trade Beno Udrih. After New York and Denver reportedly discussed a Udrih-Jordan Hamilton swap, the Nuggets have moved on and instead dealt Hamilton to the Rockets for backup guard Aaron Brooks. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports broke the story:


1:41 p.m.: Lakers' Hill still on the block

Will Jordan Hill find a new home before the trade deadline? The Lakers are talking to the Nets, Mavericks, Suns and Cavaliers, according to Sam Amick of USA Today. Here's the latest from Amick:

Hill looked to be headed for the Brooklyn Nets, who wanted to use their disabled player exception to add more depth down low despite the fact that they'll take yet another huge luxury tax hit by doing so. But according to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Lakers are now asking for a second-round pick in the deal and it's safe to say the Nets don't see that as a fair deal.


1:29 p.m.: Celtics finding no partners

Someone call Trader Danny! He's ready to make a deal!


1:26 p.m.: Shumpert to OKC? Nevermind

Just 15 minutes after reporting that the Thunder had interest in Iman Shumpert, Chris Broussard of ESPN.com essentially shot down his own rumor:


1:21 p.m.: 76ers want all of your draft picks

Or so it would appear. After acquiring multiple second-round picks today, Philly now owns roughly 30 percent of the second round in the 2014 NBA draft:


1:13 p.m.: Thunder interested in Shumpert?

If the Knicks want to trade Iman Shumpert before the deadline, they're going to have to be a little lucky. Chris Broussard of ESPN.com details the situation:

Shumpert, the 17th pick in the 2011 draft, was highly regarded by the Knicks' front office until recently.


1:09 p.m.: Knicks unloading Udrih?

The Knicks have enough drama without Beno Udrih Drama, which is why New York has been trying furiously to unload the veteran point guard. The team has finally found a partner, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com:


12:59 p.m.: Zeller-Bullock trade unlikely

A strange trade rumor turned out to be little more than that. Ken Berger of CBS Sports put the kibosh on the talk of the Cavaliers sending Tyler Zeller to the Clippers:


12:43 p.m.: Bobcats-Bucks trade grows to 4 players

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer is reporting that the Bobcats and Bucks have officially agreed to a four-player trade:

Check out Rob Mahoney's story on the deal here.


12:37 p.m. Andre Miller three-team trade

Andre Miller is, in fact, heading to the Wizards. But the trade is a little more complicated than originally expected. Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting it to be a three-team deal:


12:35 p.m.: Cavaliers trying new approach

Cleveland has been dead-set on getting a first-round pick back for Luol Deng, but appears to be changing its mind as the deadline grows closer. The latest from Ken Berger of CBS Sports:


12:33 p.m.: Miller 'close' to being a Wizard

The Andre Miller updates and growing more frequent and more serious. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the veteran point guard is "close" to being sent to the Wizards:


12:09 p.m.: Pistons trying to motor Josh Smith trade

According to Zach Lowe of Grantland, the Pistons are shopping Josh Smith before the deadline, despite signing him to a four-year, $54 million contract only seven months ago:

Good luck with allllll that.


12:07 p.m.: Race for Nuggets' Miller down to two?

TNT's David Aldridge is reporting that there are two leaders in the chase for Nuggets veteran point guard Andre Miller:

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports what the Wizards could send back in a prospective deal:


12:05 p.m.: Knicks unlikely to make move

As much as the Knicks -- and their eager fan base -- would likely to pull off a move before the trade deadline, the likelihood is pretty slim, as spelled out by Frank Isola of the New York Daily News:


12:01 p.m.: Neal-for-Sessions shaping up

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski adds to Ken Berger's report that the Bobcats are closing in on a Gary Neal trade:


11:55 a.m.: Pacers finding no Granger takers

Larry Bird and the Pacers' brass continue to scour the league for a Danny Granger taker (and his expiring contract), but are having no luck. ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst has the latest report:


11:53 a.m.: Cavs not done making moves?

After trading for Spencer Hawes earlier in the day, the Cavaliers may make another move. With Cleveland's frontcourt logjam growing even more crowded with the addition of Hawes, the Cavs are now reportedly shopping Tyler Zeller. From Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com:


11:48 a.m.: Bobcats nearing deal for Neal

Charlotte's search for an offensive sparkplug appears to be picking up. According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, the Bobcats are nearing a deal for disgruntled Bucks guard Gary Neal:


11:20 a.m.: Mason Jr. to the Kings, will likely be waived

Sacramento reportedly had interest in adding a veteran guard before the deadline. Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports the team has acquired guard Roger Mason Jr. from the Heat, but he won't be filling that void, as Berger also reports that the team is expected to release the 33-year-old:

ESPN.com's Marc Stein added some clarification:


11:11 a.m.: No takers for Deng

The Cavaliers are having a tough time finding value for Luol Deng after trading for him last month. Via Ken Berger of CBS Sports:


10:46 a.m.: Will Andre Miller find a new home?

The Nuggets continue to shop Andre Miller around the league, but have yet to hear an offer they like. According to USA Today's Sam Amick, several point-guard needy teams are still in the running:


10:24 a.m.: Wizards eyeing Deng?

Add the Wizards to the Luol Deng sweepstakes. Washington appears to be one of the teams calling, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com:


9:54 a.m.: Cavs reportedly trade for Hawes

In the latest edition of, "What are the Cleveland Cavaliers thinking?" the team has reportedly traded for 76ers big man Spencer Hawes, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

All the details of that deal have yet to be hammered out. The Cavs will have to send something back to match Hawes' contract ($6.5M this year). The trade also could be setting up another deal. From Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal:

UPDATE: The Cavaliers will reportedly send Earl Clark (and Henry Sims) to Philadelphia in addition to the two picks:


9:37 a.m.: Kings shopping Jimmer

The trade market for Jimmer Fredette appears to be non-existent at the moment.

The sharpshooting guard, who has averaged just 11.3 minutes off the Kings' bench this season, has been unable to attract much interest around the league, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Several teams are thought to be looking for backcourt help, but apparently Jimmer is not the type of guard they're looking for.

9 a.m.: Latest deadline buzz

Here's the latest deadline buzz from around the NBA:

Andy Greder, Pioneer Press: Rumors about Timberwolves forward Kevin Love leaving Minnesota swirled late Wednesday night as basketball writer Peter Vecsey tweeted, "Wolves' fans nightmare has come true." "He's forcing premature exit," Vecsey tweeted after 10 p.m. Wednesday. Wolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders quickly denied that. "Rumors of Love telling me he's opting out [after 2015] and wants to be traded are false," Saunders tweeted. "Last conversation I had with him was him telling me how bad my sports coat was."

Marc Stein, ESPN.com: Laker plan taking shape: Trade Jordan Hill and Chris kaman in next 17 hours and they get under tax AND no longer HAVE to trade Pau Gasol. [That's] what some rival execs now expect Lakes to do. Trade Hill. Trade Kaman. Then roll w/Pau into July to re-sign or sign-and-trade him.

Ramona Shelburne, ESPNLosAngeles.com: Sense is Brooklyn & New Orleans are leaders for Jordan Hill. Charlotte, ATL among others who've expressed interest

Steve Bulpett, Boston Herald: One team executive who’d spoken to the Celtics reported that, in particular, the Rajon Rondo rumors appear to be out of control. “They’re willing to talk about Rondo, but that’s always been true, for Rondo and for everyone,” he said. “But I can tell you that nothing is happening there. That doesn’t mean someone won’t panic today and make them a real offer, but I know that hasn’t happened yet.” There was further indication that there was no substance to reports of interest in Rondo from Houston. There has been nothing approaching a negotiation or even a call from the Rockets.

Jason Lloyd, Akron Beacon Journal: The Cavaliers remain confident they’ll get a deal done in advance of today’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, but what exactly they’ll do remains a mystery. The team is taking calls on Luol Deng, but would need a first-round pick in return to consider parting with him. ... ESPN reported the Cavs had emerged as frontrunners to acquire the Los Angeles Lakers’ Jordan Hill, but a league source refuted that and insisted the two sides weren’t in discussions over Hill. The Cavs have also been linked in trade rumors to the Lakers’ Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman, but all of those talks seemed dormant as of today.

Mike Ganter, Toronto Sun: There is every chance the NBA trade deadline will come and go with the Raptors not making a move.

Charles F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: [T]he Bucks have a few veterans that could intrigue teams jockeying for playoff position. Among those players are guards Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour and small forward Caron Butler. ... If the Bucks do make any deals, they are seeking young assets and possibly draft picks that could help the team's rebuilding process. ... A league source indicated nothing was close for the Bucks as of Wednesday afternoon, but deals often come together in the last few hours before the deadline.

Paul Coro, Arizona Republic: The Suns entered the final hours before the trade deadline not expecting to broker a deal by Thursday’s 1 p.m. deadline, but they remain a possible player because of their cap space, Emeka Okafor’s expiring, insurance-protected contract and precarious playoff position.

Sam Amick, USA Today Sports: From the Phoenix front, I'm told Suns not close to anything right now. Standing pat is more likely possibility, but they're still exploring.

Keith Pompey, Philadelphia Inquirer: [Sixers GM Sam Hinkie] wants first-round picks in exchange for Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, and Thaddeus Young. That could be a major problem. ... Will the Sixers settle for the best offer? Or will they do what appeared unthinkable months ago - opt to keep the team intact?

Ken Berger, CBSSports.com: Unable to secure a 1st-round pick in a deal for Evan Turner, Sixers may now take a 2nd as part of package for '10 No. 2 pick, sources say. Philly has plenty of room to take back salary for Turner and is averse to signing him to a nearly $9M qualifying offer this summer.

Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports: Within hours of trade talks collapsing with the Los Angeles Clippers on a deal, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee, a league source told Yahoo Sports. ... There's concern about possible meniscus damage that will be addressed in the examination, a source told Yahoo Sports. ... After several rounds of negotiations, the Clippers and Knicks abandoned discussions on a proposed trade centered around Shumpert earlier on Wednesday, league sources said. The Knicks had interest in bringing back Clippers point guard Darren Collison and rookie Reggie Bullock as part of a package, but wanted Los Angeles to accept Raymond Felton in the deal, sources said. The Clippers resisted the Felton element of the deal, and were reluctant to part with Bullock or any draft picks in talks, sources said.

Marc Berman, New York Post: If the Knicks make a move by Thursday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, it likely will be dealing out-of-the-rotation point guard Beno Udrih.

K.C. Johnson, Chicago Tribune: Echoing comments general manager Gar Forman and executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson made last week, [Chicago coach Tom] Thibodeau said he would be surprised if the Bulls made a trade before Thursday's 2 p.m. deadline. Despite rumors, the Bulls have shown no desire to move Mike Dunleavy because he's an affordable rotation player who fits next season.

Christopher Dempsey, Denver Post: By the time the Nuggets hit the court against the Milwaukee Bucks in their second game after the all-star break, they'll already know whether they are officially past the Andre Miller era. And if he is dealt by 1 p.m. Thursday, the NBA's trade deadline, it will go down as one of the most challenging deals Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly ever made. Connelly is dealing from a position of no leverage, so the Nuggets are getting one-sided offers. Miller has wanted out of town since an episode Jan. 1, when he publicly ripped coach Brian Shaw during a game against Philadelphia.

Vincent Goodwill, Detroit News: Pistons president Joe Dumars still had the expiring contracts of Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva to dangle at teams, with both making around $8.5 million each before their deals come off the books. ... But since the unexpected firing of Maurice Cheeks by owner Tom Gores after just 50 games, it doesn’t appear the Pistons are in any rush to make any moves -- either out of haste or foresight for the future.

Mike Tokito, The Oregonian: [M]any signs point to Portland going through the trade deadline without making a deal for the first time since 2004-05.

John Reid, New Orleans Times Picayune: Despite that his name has been swirling amid trade speculation, New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard Anthony Morrow tried to turn his attention solely toward Wednesday night’s game against the New York Knicks. But the possibility remains that he could be playing for another team if the Pelicans pull the trigger before Thursday’s 2 p.m. trade deadline. League sources confirmed Wednesday that the Pelicans could be looking to unload one of their guards to secure draft picks. Second-year guard Austin Rivers, who was the 10th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, also has been mentioned in trade rumors.

8:45 a.m.: Wednesday's trades

Two trades were completed on Wednesday. The Nets sent guard Jason Terry and forward Reggie Evans to the Kings for guard Marcus Thornton. Later Wednesday, the Lakers agreed to send point guard Steve Blake to the Warriors for guards MarShon Brooks and Kent Bazemore.
