NBA Trade Deadline Deals & Grades 2024

Last Updated: Feb 12, 2024

Last year’s NBA trade deadline saw All-Stars including Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving find new homes. The 2024 deadline was always going to fall short in comparison, but even still, things were relatively quiet.

To catch you up on all the most important deals, we’ve put together a list of some of the top transactions and provided a few of the best bets you can make now that the dust has settled.

All NBA odds are current as of Monday, Feb. 12, and courtesy of bet365 Sportsbook.

Top 2024 NBA Trade Deadline Deals

Gordon Hayward Traded to Thunder

  • Thunder get: Gordon Hayward
  • Hornets get: Tre Mann, Vasilije Micić, Dāvis Bertāns, two second-round picks

Former All-Star wing Gordon Hayward was the most notable player moved ahead of the annual trade deadline, and for the first time since 2019-20, he finds himself suiting up for a contending team.

The Thunder came into the season with the NBA’s second-youngest roster, so adding a 33-year-old veteran is a smart move. Hayward is more than capable of contributing when he’s healthy, too, so he could become a valuable piece of the playoff rotation.

For the Hornets, the top prize is Tre Mann, a third-year guard Oklahoma City selected with the No. 18 pick in 2021. The 23-year-old averaged over 10 points per game in a larger role as a rookie, and he could shine with more freedom in Charlotte.

Hayward Trade Grades

  • Thunder: A
  • Hornets: A

The Hornets get a solid return for Hayward’s expiring contract, and the Thunder get a much-needed veteran who can help space the floor when healthy. This is a win-win.

Bojan Bogdanović, Alec Burks Traded to Knicks

  • Knicks get: Bojan Bogdanović, Alec Burks
  • Pistons get: Evan Fournier, Malachi Flynn, Quentin Grimes, Ryan Arcidiacono, two second-round picks

The Knicks keep winning. After landing OG Anunoby via trade in late December, New York moved to acquire Bojan Bogdanović and Alec Burks from the Pistons, adding valuable scoring off the bench.

This is the most well-rounded Knicks team we’ve seen in decades, and Bogdanović and Burks will only help them improve on the offensive end.

The Pistons shed some salary in the deal and acquired a potentially valuable rotation piece in Quentin Grimes, who was a first-round pick in 2021. Time will tell what he can accomplish in the long run, but for now, his three-point shooting can help a team that ranks 29th in makes.

Bogdanović Trade Grades

  • Knicks: A
  • Pistons: C-

New York adds great depth while only shedding one rotation player. Detroit at least got something for Burks’ expiring contract, but failing to net a first-round pick for Bogdanović feels like a failure.

P.J. Washington Traded to Mavericks

  • Mavericks get: P.J. Washington
  • Hornets get: Grant Williams, Seth Curry, 2027 first-round pick

Dallas reportedly couldn’t wait to get rid of Grant Williams, who supposedly wasn’t well-liked within the locker room. The Mavericks managed to move him, along with Seth Curry and a 2027 first-round pick, for Hornets forward P.J. Washington.

Washington is the same age as Williams (25), but it feels as though he has more potential. He’s not a great floor spacer or defender, but he’s an efficient option around the rim who can make an impact off the bench.

Perhaps Williams will build better connections in Charlotte, where his postseason experience will be an uncommon asset.

Washington Trade Grades

  • Mavericks: B-
  • Hornets: B+

Washington is a nice contributor on offense, but he doesn’t bring much to the table for a Dallas defense that already ranks among the bottom 10. Props to Charlotte for landing Williams, who could help to change the culture, and a future first-round pick.

NBA Futures Bets To Make After Trade Deadline

Thunder Win Western Conference (+900)

bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

With or without Hayward, the Thunder have a real shot to win the West and advance to the NBA Finals. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s MVP campaign is as real as it gets, and this roster — while young — is darn good.

In time, Hayward can become an essential part of this rotation. He’ll benefit from OKC’s spacing — the team already ranks third in three-point percentage — and he’s exactly the type of connector that all contenders need.

Considering Oklahoma City’s body of work this season, (+900) is a great price.

Knicks Win Eastern Conference (+700)

bet365 Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

As of now, the Celtics, Cavaliers, and Knicks look like the top threats to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. The 76ers are in danger of falling in the standings without Joel Embiid, and the Bucks are still working through their issues after hiring Doc Rivers.

So why can’t it be New York? Jalen Brunson has put together an MVP-caliber season. OG Anunoby is spearheading what may be the league’s best defense. Julius Randle is scoring in bunches. And now, Bogdanović and Burks highlight a dangerous second unit.

The Knicks have all the pieces to compete for the title. They’re worth the risk at (+700).
