Biggest deadline deals
The Golden State Warriors have agreed to trade D’Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a deal that includes Andrew Wiggins, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The Warriors also get a 2021 top-3 protected first-round draft pick and a 2021 second-round pick and will send Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman to the Timberwolves.
The LA Clippers, New York Knicks and Washington Wizards have agreed to a three-team trade that will send Marcus Morris and Isaiah Thomas to the Clippers, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are finalizing a deal for the leading rebounder in the league, Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons, sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Drummond is a two-time All-Star but has an opt-out in his contract for next season. The Pistons had been shopping him, believing he would become a free agent and they would lose him. Sources say they will get John Henson, Brandon Knight and a second-round draft pick in 2023.
The Miami Heat have agreed to trade Dion Waiters, Justise Winslow and James Johnson to the Memphis Grizzlies for Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday. The Minnesota Timberwolves later joined the deal, acquiring Johnson from the Grizzlies in exchange for center Gorgui Dieng, sources told Wojnarowski. Along with the trade, Iguodala has agreed to a two-year, $30 million extension with Miami, sources said. The extension includes a team option.
The Houston Rockets acquired the Minnesota Timberwolves‘ Robert Covington and traded center Clint Capela to the Atlanta Hawks as part of a four-team, 12-player deal on Tuesday night, league sources told ESPN. One of the NBA’s most expansive trades in nearly 20 years saw the Timberwolves acquire two first-round picks, including Houston’s 2020 pick, which they moved on to the Denver Nuggets for guard Malik Beasley and forward Juan Hernangomez, sources said.
