Randy Foye found out he got traded through a notification on the NBA app

The first truly social NBA trade.

Want to find out if you got traded? There's an app for that.

On the day of the NBA trade deadline, Randy Foye was traded from the Denver Nuggets to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The deadline is always rough on players, since they're immediately relocated. Their family most likely has to move as the player adjusts to his new environment. It's a very harsh thing to experience.

And apparently it can be made worse. For Foye, he didn't find out through his players or the front office. He found out through his NBA app. Since the NBA app pushes notifications from articles, there is one way this situation can become exacerbated -- they can enable push notifications on Twitter for Adrian Wojnarowski Woj Bombs!
