Check out all of the OFFICIAL NBA trades from February 7 here:

Barnes to Kings for Jackson, Randolph

Sacramento Kings receive:
F Harrison Barnes

Dallas Mavericks receive:
F Justin Jackson
F Zach Randolph

Official Release: Mavericks

Instant Analysis: Acquiring Barnes, who won a championship in Golden State before leaving to join the Mavericks as a free agent in 2016, offers the playoff-hungry Kings not only a veteran presence, but also a reliable shooter and scorer who can help further amplify the burgeoning games of rising backcourt tandem of De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield. The Mavericks acquire a significant expiring contract in Randolph, who has yet to play this season, and a potential shooting threat in Jackson, who's not quite made his pro basketball bones after leading North Carolina's 2017 NCAA Championship squad.

Porter Jr. to Bulls

Chicago Bulls receive:
F Otto Porter Jr.

Washington Wizards receive:
F Jabari Parker
F Bobby Portis

Official Release: Bulls | Wizards

Instant Analysis: With John Wall's absence extending further still following the diagnosis of a ruptured Achilles' tendon, the Wizards finally shook up their recent core, sending a well-regarded (though highly paid) forward to Chicago for a pair of expirings with potential. Parker, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014, never solidified his position after a heralded Chicago homecoming. Portis has established bona fides off the bench, but never fully cracked the starting lineup during an injury-plagued fourth season with the Bulls.

Pelicans land Morris

New Orleans Pelicans receive:
F Markieff Morris
2023 second-round pick

Washington Wizards receive:
G Wesley Johnson

Official Release: Wizards

Instant Analysis: The Wizards shed payroll by dealing Morris for Johnson's smaller contract, which allows them to avoid the repeater tax. The Pelicans add a draft pick to their war chest for taking on Morris' money, though he is also slated to become a free agent this summer.

* * *

Suns acquire Johnson

Phoenix Suns receive:
G Tyler Johnson
G Wayne Ellington

Miami Heat receive:
F Ryan Anderson

Official Release: Suns | Heat

Instant Analysis: Tyler Johnson may not be a pure point guard, but he does add some much-needed backcourt toughness to a Suns team that ranks 29th in defense. Ellington would provide an upgrade to the league's worst 3-point shooting team as well, but reports indicate the veteran sharpshooter will be waived and allowed to join a team of his choosing. As for the Heat, they gain significant tax savings and come that much closer to becoming an offseason player sooner than later.

* * *

Richardson to Sixers

Philadelphia 76ers receive:
G Malachi Richardson
2022 second-round pick
Draft rights to Emir Preldzic

Toronto Raptors receive:
Cash considerations

Official release: Sixers

Instant analysis: The Sixers continue to be busy before the NBA's trade deadline. The addition of 6-foot-6 guard Malachi Richardson helps solidify the Sixers' bench guard depth. The 23 year old averaged just 4.7 minutes over 22 games with the Raptors this season. He was originally drafted by the Sacramento Kings with the 22nd pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.

Lakers add Bullock

Los Angeles Lakers receive:
G Reggie Bullock

Detroit Pistons receive:
Svi Mykhailiuk
Future second-round pick

Official release: Lakers | Pistons

Instant analysis: The Lakers add some needed guard depth with the addition of Reggie Bullock. The sixth-year guard averaged 12.1 points, 2.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds over 44 games with the Pistons this season. He should be able to help the Lakers' depth chart as they wait for starting point guard Lonzo Ball to return from injury.

Rookie Svi Mykhailiuk didn't receive much opportunity with the Lakers during his first 39 games in the NBA. The 6-foot-8 guard was selected with the 47th pick of the 2018 NBA Draft and averaged 3.3 points in just 10.8 minutes per game with Los Angeles.

Sixers add firepower with Harris trade

Philadelphia 76ers receive:
F Tobias Harris
C Boban Marjanovic
F Mike Scott

LA Clippers receive:
F Wilson Chandler
F/C Mike Muscala
G Landry Shamet
2020 first-round pick
2021 first-round pick (from Miami)
Two future second-round picks (from Detroit)

Official release: 76ers | Clippers

Instant analysis: The Sixers continue to go all-in on the 2018-19 season with the addition of Tobias Harris. The eighth-year NBA forward is averaging career-highs of 20.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 34.6 minutes over 55 games with the Clippers this season. Alongside Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, Harris and the Sixers could have enough talent to make a run for the Eastern Conference title. Harris, along with Butler, are both unrestricted free agents this summer.

For the Clippers, they add two valuable first-round picks that could be used in another trade before Thursday's deadline. Rookie guard Landry Shamet has also been impressive during his first season in the NBA with averages of 8.3 points on 44.1-percent shooting from the field and 40.4-percent from 3-point. Wilson Chandler and Mike Muscala both have contracts that will expire this summer.
