Solar Panel LIVE: Trade Deadline reactions + predicting the buyout market

Espo, Dave and Saul discuss the fallout of the trade deadline

Which teams got better? Which teams got worse?

  • 1st, 2nd and 4th seeds did nothing: Utah, Suns, Lakers
  • LA Clippers (3rd) swapped Lou Williams for Rajon Rondo for some reason — did they get worse?
  • Denver (5th) added Aaron Gordon and JaVale McGee (for only basically Gary Harris)
  • Portland (6th) got Norman Powell for Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood, also now expecting Jusuf Nurkic back Friday as well — are they any better?
  • Dallas (6th) added shooting with Redick and Melli, swapping defense for offense

Have the Suns missed out on their title chances by skipping the trade deadline?

Are there any attractive buyout candidates on the market?
