The NBA Trade Deadline has come and gone, and in the past 12 hours or so, what was expected to be a quiet day has given way to a whirlwind of activity that's sent NBA stars flying in just about every direction. If you've had trouble keeping track of everything, you're not alone.
But that's why we're here. SB Nation has the details on every trade from the past week, and in the interest of everyone's sanity, how about an overview of everything that's happened in the past 48 hours or so? Does that sound like something you'd be interested in? ... Good!
In no particular order...
The Rockets' SF Shane Battier returns to the Memphis Grizzlies, the team that drafted him. In return, Rockets received Hasheem Thabeet and a protected first round pick.
The Suns traded for PG Aaron Brooks, and sent PG Goran Dragic to Houston in exchange.
The Boston Celtics traded C Kendrick Perkins and G Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for C Nenad Krstic, SF Jeff Green, and the rights to the L.A. Clippers' 2012 1st round pick.
The Boston Celtics also traded C Semih Erden and PF Luke Harangody to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for a second round pick. For their final move of the day, the Celtics dealt SG Marquis Daniels to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for cash. What are the Celtics thinking here? Glad you asked!

Oklahoma City traded for the Bobcats C Nazr Mohammed, and sent SG Morris Peterson and PF D.J. White to Charlotte as part of the exchange.
The Los Angeles Clippers traded PG Baron Davis and a 2011 number one pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for SF Jamario Moon and PG Mo Williams.

And of course, who could forget the most head-splitting trade of them all? MELODRAMA.
Whether your favorite player is coming home or leaving for good, you have to admit, it's been a pretty exciting day in the NBA. Stay tuned to SB Nation as we all try to make sense of the madness.
