The 2011 NBA Draft went off without a hitch Thursday night, but amidst all the new faces and NBA trades, there was plenty of opportunity for confusion. It wasn't as crazy a night as some had predicted, but it still made heads spin, particularly because the NBA refuses to acknowledge trades until the end of the first round.
That leads to questions like, "Why is Bismack Biyombo wearing a Kings hat? Didn't the Kings trade that pick so they could take Jimmer?" Or maybe, "Why is ESPN saying Marshon Brooks is going to Boston when Twitter just said the Celtics swapped picks with the Nets?"
If you were a little shellshocked the draft night experience, you're not alone, and we're here to help. What follows is a roundup of every trade that went down during Thursday night's draft, and a few that didn't even involve draft picks. It all started with Sacramento...
KAAAAAAHHHHHN Sends Flynnnnnnnn To Houston
The T'Wolves Keep Dealing, Swap Picks With Chicago, Then Miami
The Celtics And Nets Swap Picks
The Knicks Buy A Second Round Pick
The Warriors Buy A Second Round Pick
Magic And Cavs Swap Second Round Picks
Finally, CHU CHU's GOING TO DENVER
Lakers get: future second round pick
Nuggets get: Chukwudiebere "Chu Chu" Maduabum, the no. 56 pick, and possibly the best name to come through the NBA Draft since DJ Mbenga Mbenga. You may be annoyed by all the trades this year, but for God's sakes, LONG LIVE CHU CHU MADUABUM.
