NBA trade deadline madness
NBA trades are only allowed until today at the time this post is usually published (3 p.m. ET). Here are the boring moves that happened today:

- The Cavs, Mavericks, and Trail Blazers completed a deal that sends Channing to Orlando and Anderson Varejao to Portland.
- The Hawks sent Shelvin Mack to the Jazz.
- Houston sent Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton to the Pistons.
- Miami Heat traded forward Jarnell Stokes to the New Orleans Pelicans to free up cap space.
- The Nets hired Sean Marks as general manager.
