Blazers receive: Skal Labissiere

Kings receive: Caleb Swanigan

I will grant you, this move is hard to relate this move back to the Raptors. If Toronto has their eyes set on either player this offseason (why), it might be slightly more difficult to trade for them now.

Magic receive: Markelle Fultz
Sixers receive: Jonathon Simmons, Protected 2019 Thunder first, 2019 second

The Philadelphia 76ers have finally parted ways with Markelle Fultz. After 1.5 years of one of the weirdest stories in NBA history, he has been moved to the Orlando Magic.  For Orlando, it’s worth a low-first and an expiring contract to take a lottery ticket flyer at an extremely talented player.

For Philly, they receive a rotation piece as well as a draft asset to help balance what they lost in the Tobias Harris trade. Terrence Ross would have been an even bigger addition for the Sixers, however, the Magic remained adamant on bring him back.

Houston Rockets receive: Iman Shumpert, Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin, 2021 second

Sacramento Kings receive: Alec Burks, 2020 second

Cleveland Cavaliers receive: Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, 2019 first, 2022 second

Now playing for a playoff contender, Alec Burks is no longer a buyout option. As an athletic forward who has some ball skills, Burks would have been an interesting option in the second unit.

The deal also sent Stauskas and Baldwin to the Houston Rockets, ultimately allowing them to be dealt again (more on that later).

Brandon Knight also becomes an obvious buyout candidate, although it’s not clear if he has enough left to make the Raptors roster.
