NBA Draft 2012 Trades: Tyler Zeller Trade Headlines Draft Day Deals

For all of the pre-draft speculation, the 2012 NBA Draft came and went without a blockbuster trade. No current NBA superstars switched teams and despite plenty of rumors, no top-10 picks were traded. However, despite the lack of a blockbuster move, there were still plenty of draft day trades on Thursday.

Miami tades Arnett Moultrie to Philadephia for Justin Hamilton and a future first-round pick:

The Heat selected Moultrie with the No. 27 pick before they traded him to the 76ers for the No. 45 pick, which turned into Hamilton and a future first-round selection.

Sacramento trades Orlando Johnson to Indiana for cash considerations:

The Kings selected Johnson with the No. 36 pick before dealing him away for cash.

Dallas trades Tyler Zeller and Kelenna Azubuike to Cleveland for Jared Cunningham, Bernard James and Jae Crowder:

Dallas used the No. 17 pick to select Zeller then traded him along with veteran Azubuike to Cleveland for three picks. The No. 24 pick turned into Cunningham with James taken at No. 33 and Crowder No. 34.

Philadelphia trades Tornike Shengelia to Brooklyn for cash considerations:

The 76ers made their second deal of draft night when they used the No. 54 pick on Shengelia before shipping him to Brooklyn for cash.

Portland trades Tyshawn Taylor to Brooklyn for cash considerations:

Brooklyn bought a second pick of the night when they traded cash to Portland for Taylor, who was the No. 41 pick.

Dallas trades Darius Johnson-Odom to the Los Angeles Lakers for cash considerations:

This deal was not as big as Dallas' five-player trade earlier, but the Mavs picked up some cash when they sent the No. 55 pick to the Lakers. This pick originally belonged to Los Angeles, but they sent it to Dallas in the Lamar Odom trade.
