There are only 22 days left before the new season of the NBA opens. As the brand-new season approaches, several trades are on the block – perhaps these are something to look out for. The market is on the hunt for fresh talents out there. Let us take a look at the recent acquisitions that happened inside the NBA trade tracer during the last seven days.
It is a surprising sight to see Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward in a new uniform. This time, the Celtics move to trade Hayward, together with two future 2023 and 2024 second-round picks to Charlotte Hornets for a future 2022 second-round pick. However, the 2022 second-round choice will only be picked if the Hornets will be in the top 5 in the upcoming season. Nicolas Batum has been waived to clear the space for Hayward. This agreement also includes a $28.5 million trade exception, which is the same as Hayward’s salary. So far, it is the largest trade exception in the history of the NBA.
35th pick of this year’s draft Xavier Tillmar Sr. signs a four-year agreement with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist inked a one-year contract with the New York Knicks.
