Because the 2022 NBA offseason began, 26 trades have been made, as our tracker shows. A complete of 25 teams have been involved in those 26 deals, with 15 clubs (half the league) completing multiple trades.
The Raptors, Heat, Bulls, Pelicans, and Clippers are the one teams which have not been a part of at the very least one trade since their seasons ended this spring. While most of those clubs were pretty energetic in free agency, it has been an especially quiet offseason in Latest Orleans, where the Pelicans also haven’t made a single free agent signing.
On the other end of the spectrum, the Timberwolves have been the NBA’s most energetic team on the trade market this summer, with latest president of basketball operations Tim Connelly putting his stamp on the franchise in his first few months on the job. After making 4 draft-night deals in June, Minnesota finalized the offseason’s biggest trade by acquiring Rudy Gobert from the Jazz just over a month ago.
The Hawks and Knicks, with 4 deals apiece, have been the following most energetic teams on the trade market. A pair of Atlanta’s moves were minor, but the opposite two – acquiring Dejounte Murray and sending Kevin Huerter to Sacramento – could have a significant impact on the team going forward. As for Latest York, most of Leon Rose‘s deals involved shuffling around draft picks and clearing cap room for the team’s free agent signings of Jalen Brunson and Isaiah Hartenstein.
Listed here are just a few more details on this summer’s 26 trades:
- The Pacers, Pistons, Nuggets, Grizzlies, and Kings have each made three trades. The opposite teams to make multiple deals are the Hornets, Thunder, Jazz, Trail Blazers, Mavericks, Rockets, and Spurs, with two apiece.
- That leaves the Sixers, Nets, Celtics, Cavaliers, Bucks, Magic, Wizards, Lakers, Warriors, and Suns because the clubs which have each accomplished only one trade.
- All 26 of this offseason’s trades have consisted of just two teams, with no three- or four-team deals made to this point. A draft-night agreement involving the Hornets, Knicks, and Pistons was originally reported as a three-team trade, but was ultimately accomplished as two separate deals.
- Not a single player has been signed-and-traded to this point through the 2022 offseason. That’s pretty surprising, since 27 free agents modified teams via sign-and-trade within the three years from 2019-21 and only 4 teams used cap room this offseason — sign-and-trades are typically more common in years when most clubs are operating over the cap.
- Eight first round picks from the 2022 draft were traded this summer, and 4 of those were dealt twice: Jalen Duren (Charlotte to Latest York to Detroit); Walker Kessler (Memphis to Minnesota to Utah); Wendell Moore (Dallas to Houston to Minnesota); and TyTy Washington (Memphis to Minnesota to Houston).
- One other dozen second round 2022 picks modified hands this offseason, including one which was on the move twice (No. 46 pick Ismael Kamagate from Detroit to Portland to Denver).
- A complete of 15 future round picks (2023 and beyond) were included in trades this summer, including a pair that modified hands twice. Six of those first round picks were unprotected, while nine included protections.
- One other 19 future second round picks (2023 and beyond) were also traded, with two of those 19 dealt twice. All but certainly one of those traded second rounders was unprotected.
