2013 NBA Draft: Trades Recap
Posted By Yannis Koutroupis On June 28, 2013 @ 3:00 am In NBA Draft | No Comments
Prior to the 2013 NBA Draft there were rumblings that there could be a lot of activity. Those turned out to be true to say the least as 16 draft-related deals went down and one major trade that will shake up the Eastern Conference was agreed to in principle. Here’s a complete recap of each and every transaction:
Analysis: To call this deal, which cannot become official until July 10 when Pierce’s contract becomes fully guaranteed, a blockbuster is an understatement. The Celtics are now officially in rebuilding mode, trading away two of their centerpieces from their recent resurgence. The Nets have made it clear that they will pay whatever it takes to get star players and compete for a championship and proved that with this deal. Their payroll will likely exceed $170 million after luxury taxes, but they are now a viable championship contender with a stacked starting lineup of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. Terry will be a solid sixth man and a leader for their second unit.
Utah Jazz Receive: Trey Burke
Minnesota Timberwolves Receive: Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng
Analysis: The Utah Jazz were dead set on getting a point guard in the draft and they landed quite possibly the best this class has to offer in Burke. Muhammad has the potential to start for the Timberwolves at the shooting guard spot next season and Gorgui Dieng will provide some depth in the frontcourt.
New Orleans Pelicans Receive: Jrue Holiday and Pierre Jackson
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick (1-3 protected)
Analysis: In the biggest draft-related deal of the night, newly-hired Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie put his stamp on the team by shipping out Jrue Holiday. Expectations will be high for Noel, whose arrival probably means the 76ers are passing on re-signing Andrew Bynum, as Holiday was an All-Star and fan favorite. Holiday makes Grevis Vasquez expendable in New Orleans. A Vasquez trade would bode well for Jackson’s chances to make the roster.
Miami HEAT Receive: James Ennis
Atlanta Hawks Receive: Future second-round pick
Analysis: Ellis is a mature, versatile scorer who will give the HEAT’s second unit some much needed youth. The Hawks have somewhat of a logjam on the perimeter and added enough youth in the draft already, which is why they were willing to move Ennis.
Boston Celtics Receive: Colton Iverson
Indiana Pacers Receive: Cash considerations
Analysis: Iverson is a strong, physical big man with a blue-collar mentality who has a good chance to make their roster. Indiana was willing to sell his rights as they are set in the interior.
Dallas Mavericks Receive: Lucas Nogueira and two future second-round picks
Boston Celtics Receive: Kelly Olynyk
Analysis: The Mavericks later moved Nogueira in a separate trade. The Celtics are undergoing a massive rebuilding process, but Olynyk gives them a quality big man who can score and possibly play both the four and the five.
Dallas Mavericks Receive: Shane Larkin and cash considerations
Atlanta Hawks Receive: Lucas Nogueira, Mike Muscala and Jared Cunnigham
Analysis: Larkin gives the Mavericks some much needed help at the point guard position. As one of the best orchestrators of the pick-and-roll, Larkin should fit in well with the Mavericks. Muscala gives the Hawks a quality center; he has a good chance to make the opening day roster. Nogueira on the other hand will likely develop overseas, while Cunningham will provide some backcourt depth.
Denver Nuggets Receive: Erick Green and cash considerations
Utah Jazz Receive: Rudy Gobert
Analysis: Gobert is the tallest and longest player in the draft, giving the Jazz a promising young big man to develop behind Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. Green is an explosive scorer, but he’ll have to battle to make the Nuggets roster.
Portland Trail Blazers Receive: Allen Crabbe
Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: Two future second-round picks
Analysis: The Trail Blazers are looking to overhaul their entire second unit. Crabbe is one of the best shooters in the draft and should be able to provide instant offense off of the bench. The Cavaliers were willing to let him go since they picked up shooting guard Carrick Felix at 43.
Golden State Warriors Receive: Malcolm Lee and Andre Roberson
Minnesota Timberwolves Receive: 2014 second-round pick and cash considerations.
Analysis: The Warriors traded Roberson and Lee in separate deals. The Timberwolves, who are set on trying to make the playoffs next season, were content with adding just two rookies.
Golden State Warriors Receive: Archie Goodwin
Oklahoma City Thunder Receive: Andre Roberson
Analysis: The Warriors traded Goodwin in a separate deal. Roberson is an athletic, versatile forward who could carve a niche for himself on the Thunder with his defensive ability.
Golden State Warriors Receive: Nemanja Nedovic
Phoenix Suns Receive: Archie Goodwin and Malcolm Lee
Analysis: Nedovic is an athletic combo guard who fits right in with the Warriors style of play. He’ll reportedly play with them in summer league. Goodwin and Lee provide the Suns with some options at shooting guard, a serious area of need.
Washington Wizards Receive: Glen Rice Jr.
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: Nate Wolters and Arsalan Kazemi
Analysis: The Wizards only wanted to add two rookies, not three as they were slated to. Rice Jr. gives them an athletic scorer who can play either wing position. Wolters was traded by the 76ers in a separate deal. Kazemi has a good chance to make the 76ers roster thanks to his strong rebounding ability.
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: Ricky Ledo and a 2014 second-round pick
Milwaukee Bucks Receive: Nate Wolters
Analysis: The 76ers traded Ledo in a separate deal. Wolters has a chance to make the Bucks, especially if Brandon Jennings leaves in free agency. Even if he stays, Wolters would be a nice, cheap backup.
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: 2014 second-round pick
Dallas Mavericks Receive: Ricky Ledo
Analysis: Mark Cuban is always willing to gamble. Ledo is a low-risk, high-reward option known for his scoring prowess.
Oklahoma City Thunder Receive: Grant Jerrett
Portland Trail Blazers Receive: Cash considerations
Analysis: With no shortage of youth already, the Trail Blazers opted to cash in Jerrett. As a stretch four, Jerrett could eventually develop into someone who the Thunder use to space the floor and keep the defenses honest against Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Denver Nuggets Receive: Joffrey Lauvergne and Darrell Arthur
Memphis Grizzlies Receive: Kosta Koufos
Analysis: The Grizzlies addressed their need for a backup center with Koufos, while the Nuggets add some depth at the power forward spot. Arthur had fallen out of favor with Ed Davis now in Memphis. Lauvergne, a French forward, will continue to play overseas for at least the next season.
