The NBA trade frenzy is off with some of the lesser known names changing zip codes. Among the teams that have reportedly pulled off deals include the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers as well as the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets.
The Hawks have dealt Tiago Splitter plus two second-round draft picks to the Sixers in exchange for Ersan Ilyasova, the Vertical reported. Splitter is best known for his aggressive role-playing while Ilyasova is a swingman that should come in handy for Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer.
The cellar-dwelling Brooklyn Nets have reportedly sent Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a lottery first-round pick in 20172 according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bogdanovic is one of two players the Nets are believed to be moving, the other of which is Brook Lopez.
The NBA tradeline clock is ticking and more moves could be happening. Big names such as Carmelo Anthony, Jahlil Okafor, Jimmy Butler and Paul George have been mentioned but nothing has prospered as of this writing.
