At the close of trading on February 10, the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia 76ers struck a bargain for Ben Simmons and James Harden. Trading has since paused as the second half of the season and postseason began.
Four months later, trades are back in season as the 2022 NBA Draft is less than a week away.
The Orlando Magic emerged victorious from the draft lottery in May to secure first place overall, followed by the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets in second and third place respectively.
The Thunder started the final round of trading on Monday when they sent the No. 30 overall to the Denver Nuggets for forward JaMychal Green and two future second-round picks.
The Rockets acquired the No. 26 overall pick from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for center Christian Wood. The Rockets are also getting four players on expiring contracts.
