nba scores_baji999 live_NBA Scores: The Nets are already winning without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
And business was booming in the NBA, from late Wednesday evening into the wee hours of Thursday’s trade deadline. All in all, north of 50 players were dealt, with 24 teams making deals to acquire fresh faces (while a few brought back familiar ones). The biggest deal — Kevin Durant to Phoenix in exchange for a package featuring the aforementioned Bridges and Johnson — came through just after 1 a.m. ET on Thursday morning; that proved to merely be the opening of the floodgates. Impact players ranging from Jakob Poeltl to Gary Payton II were moved back to their previous homes; Jae Crowder came out of hiding to be dealt to the Milwaukee Bucks in search of a championship; Jaden McDaniels (to Philly), Luke Kennard (to Memphis), Bones Hyland (to the Clippers), and Mike Muscala (to Boston) were dealt to contenders looking to fill holes.
