Here's a recap of all the deals done immediately before the 2019 NBA Trade Deadline.

Sixers add Ennis for pick swap

Sixers receive:
F James Ennis

Rockets receive:
Rights to 2021 second-round pick swap

Official Release: Sixers

Instant Analysis: After trading several rotation pieces while bulking their starting lineup, the Sixers began to add depth behind the star-laden openers. The well-traveled Ennis has proven able to contribute effectively as a starter or off the bench through four-plus NBA seasons in Houston, Memphis, Detroit, Miami and New Orleans.

Three-team deal ends with Mirotic to Bucks

Pistons receive:
F Thon Maker

Bucks receive:
F Nikola Mirotic

Pelicans receive:
F/C Jason Smith
F Stanley Johnson
Four future second-round picks (via Detroit)

Official Release: Bucks | Pistons | Pelicans

Instant Analysis: The Bucks completed a two-stage, three-team deal heading into the deadline. First, discontented big man Maker went to Detroit for Johnson ... who was then redirected with veteran Smith and four second-round picks to the Pelicans for Mirotic. Adding yet another sharpshooting big around Giannis Antetokounmpo should only heighten the matchup nightmares Milwaukee presents.

Third move for backcourt duo

Pacers receive:
G Nik Stauskas
G Wade Baldwin IV
Rights to Maarty Leunen
2021 second-round pick

Rockets receive:
Cash considerations

Official Release: Pacers

Instant Analysis: This marks the fourth team in as many days for the backcourt duo, who began the week playing for Portland and have made stops in Cleveland (for Rodney Hood) and Houston (in a three-teamer with Sacramento) on the way to Indiana. Neither have earned much in the way of playing time, though Stauskas still carries the weight of a 3-point threat in the making.

Grizzlies trade Memphis stalwart Gasol to Toronto

Raptors receive:
C Marc Gasol

Grizzlies receive:
C Jonas Valanciunas
G Delon Wright
F/G CJ Miles
2024 second-round pick

Official Release: Raptors

Instant Analysis: With their fellow Eastern Conference contenders making moves, Toronto didn't sit still, adding a talented veteran center to their formidable mix. The transition should be eased since Gasol played with Kyle Lowry (2008-09, in Memphis), albeit before the point guard elevated above his current All-Star plateau. The Grizzlies gain a solid pivot in Valanciunas, a prospective wing piece in Wright and the satisfaction of sending Gasol on to a winning situation.

* * *

Bradley headed to Memphis

Grizzlies receive:
G Avery Bradley

Clippers receive:
G/F Garrett Temple
F JaMychal Green

Official Release: Clippers | Grizzlies

Instant Analysis: Once the Clippers unloaded Tobias Harris to Philly, the focus became clearing further cap space, with flyers on Temple and Green, both expiring contracts. Bradley, a hard-nosed defender in the Memphis mold, should fit in nicely wherever deployed by the Grizzlies.

* * *

Zubac locker room reshuffled in LA

Lakers receive:
C Mike Muscala

Clippers receive:
F Michael Beasley
C Ivica Zubac

Official Release: Clippers | Lakers

Instant Analysis: The deal clears a cap hold off the Lakers' offseason books, as Zubac was set to enter restricted free agency. With no major moves prior to the deadline, the Lakers have apparently lasered in on the summer options.

* * *

Fultz finally redirected, to Orlando

Magic receive:
G Markelle Fultz

Sixers receive:
F Jonathon Simmons
Protected 2019 first-round pick
2019 second-round pick

Official Release: Magic | Sixers

Instant Analysis: After an injury-marred season-plus with the Sixers, 2017 No. 1 overall pick Fultz will attempt to find his footing in Orlando, where he's headed in exchange for Simmons and a pair of 2019 draft picks. Simmons helps flesh out the rotation depth in Philly, while the picks begin the asset rebuild after this week's trade for Tobias Harris.

* * *

Blazers acquire Labissiere

Trail Blazers receive:
F Skal Labissiere

Kings receive:
F Caleb Swanigan

Official release: Kings | Blazers

Instant Analysis: Two West coast teams swap young forwards in the hopes that a change of scenery will more fully unearth their respective talent.

* * *

Guard swap in the South

Hawks receive:
G Shelvin Mack

Grizzlies receive:
G Tyler Dorsey

Official Release: Hawks | Grizzlies

Instant Analysis: It's a return trip to Atlanta for Mack, who played 172 games for the Hawks from 2012-16. He will help soak up minutes behind and mentor rookie guard Trae Young. The Grizzlies get younger with Dorsey, who is reunited with former Oregon teammate Dillon Brooks.

* * *

Greg Monroe to Nets, then waived

Nets receive:
C Greg Monroe
2021 second-round pick

Raptors receive:
Cash considerations

Official Release: Nets

Instant Analysis: The Nets gain a second-round pick in order to help the Raptors save dollars against the cap and luxury tax. Monroe, however, was waived after being acquired.

* * *

Hawks acquire Jabari Bird

Hawks receive:
G Jabari Bird
Cash considerations

Celtics receive:
Conditional 2020 second-round pick

Official Release: Hawks

Instant Analysis: Bird hasn't played in a game this season, and was expected to be waived by Atlanta.

* * *

Shumpert to Rockets in three-team trade

Rockets receive:
G Iman Shumpert
G Nik Stauskas
G Wade Baldwin IV
2021 second-round pick

Kings receive:
G Alec Burks
2020 second-round pick

Cavaliers receive:
G Brandon Knight
F Marquese Chriss
2019 first-round pick
2022 second-round pick

Official release: Cavaliers

Instant Analysis: The Rockets reshuffled their bench depth with this three-team trade. Shumpert help bolster the Rockets' guard rotation as they battle for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Shortly after this deal was announced, the Rockets dealt Stauskas and Baldwin IV to the Indiana Pacers (see above).

For the Kings, Shumpert was less necessary to their team after acquiring Harrison Barnes from the Mavericks in a separate deal on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).
