Knicks, Sixers and Nets moves

It’s officially deadline day in the Association as the 2024 NBA trade deadline is at 3 p.m. ET this afternoon.

With the 2023-24 NBA regular season roughly 60 percent of the way complete, and All-Star weekend just a week away, teams will either be “buyers” and making moves toward a playoff push, or become “sellers” and trade away assets as they revamp for the offseason and the 2024 NBA Draft in June.

Here are the moves made so far leading up to the 2024 NBA trade deadline day:

Knicks bring back Alec Burks, trade for Bojan Bogdanovic in six-player trade with Pistons

The Thunder have traded for 14-year-veteran forward Gordon Hayward.

Hayward, who has been out since Christmas with a calf injury, will help a young, surging Thunder team that’s currently tied with two others (Timberwolves and Nuggets) teams atop not only the Northwest Division, but also the Western Conference at 35-16.

Sixers trade for Buddy Hield

Indiana Pacers guard Buddy Hield (7) shoots Sunday, Jan. 28, 2024, during the first half of the game at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The Pacers defeated the Grizzlies, 116-110.

One of the first moves of deadline was when the Sixers acquired Buddy Hield from the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Marcus Morris, Furkan Korkmaz and three second-round picks, according to reports.

Philadelphia was in need of another reliable scoring option since reigning MVP Joel Embiid is sidelined for likely the next six to eight weeks following surgery two days ago to repair his injured meniscus.
