The NBA trade deadline passed Thursday with several more deals completed.

Deadline day started with a few notable moves, including sharpshooter Buddy Hield going from the Indiana Pacers to the Philadelphia 76ers and former All-Star Gordon Hayward joining the first-place Oklahoma City Thunder in a deal with the Charlotte Hornets.

The New York Knicks bolstered their postseason chances by trading for Detroit Pistons duo Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks in exchange for four players (Evan Fournier, Malachi Flynn, Quentin Grimes, Ryan Arcidiacono) and two second-round draft picks.

The Phoenix Suns also strengthened their lineup by adding versatile winger Royce O'Neale in a three-team deal involving the Brooklyn Nets and the Memphis Grizzlies, while the Dallas Mavericks acquired P.J. Washington from the Hornets for Grant Williams.

The day before the deadline, the Pistons made a deal with the Utah Jazz to acquire Simone Fontecchio and made a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves for Monte Morris in exchange for Shake Milton and Troy Brown Jr.

The Miami Heat acquired veteran guard Terry Rozier from the Hornets on Jan. 23 for six-time All-Star Kyle Lowry and a 2027 first-round pick.

In early January, the Toronto Raptors sent two-time All-Star Pascal Siakam to the Pacers in a three-team trade also involving the New Orleans Pelicans. The Raptors received forward Bruce Brown, guard Kira Lewis Jr., Jordan Nwora, two 2024 first-round picks and a 2026 first-round pick, while New Orleans got cash considerations from the Pacers. Indiana also received a future second-round pick in the deal. In December, Toronto traded for RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley while sending OG Anunoby to the New York Knicks.
