The NBA trade deadline is now in the rearview mirror and Anthony Davis is still a Pelican. New Orleans opted to keep its star big man through the rest of the season, although it's unclear whether he will actually suit up at Smoothie King Arena. Expect plenty of suitors for Davis this offseason.

There were plenty of deals despite Davis staying put, though. Memphis ended the Marc Gasol era and shipped the three-time All-Star to Toronto, while Markelle Fultz will attempt to reboot his career in Orlando. The Bucks acquired forward Nikola Mirotic in a deal with the Pelicans, continuing the Eastern Conference arms race. LeBron James' Lakers were relatively quiet, but did deal for forward Mike Muscala. Los Angeles' young core remained intact through deadline day.
