The NBA draft is underway, and there’s already been a blockbuster. Jimmy Butler is on the move to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick.

Here are all the deals that have been completed before and during the 2017 NBA Draft.


Jimmy Butler to Wolves

  • TO MINNESOTA: Jimmy Butler, No. 16 pick (Justin Patton)
  • TO CHICAGO: Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, No. 7 pick (Lauri Markkanen)

Blazers-Kings swap selections

  • TO BLAZERS: No. 10 pick (Zach Collins)
  • TO KINGS: No. 15 pick (Justin Jackson), No. 20 pick (Harry Giles)

Jazz-Nuggets swap selections

  • TO JAZZ: No. 13 pick (Donovan Mitchell)
  • TO NUGGETS: Trey Lyles, No. 24 pick


No. 1 — Philadelphia 76ers (via Celtics, via Nets)

  • On Monday, the 76ers traded the No. 3 pick and a future first-round pick to the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 overall pick.
  • The Celtics acquired swap rights from the Nets — who originally owned the No. 1 pick — as part of the Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett trade in 2013.

No. 2 — Los Angeles Lakers (avoided trading to Sixers)

  • The Lakers finished the regular season with the third-worst record, but moved into second place through the Draft Lottery. Had they finished lower than third, the 76ers would have taken this pick. But that didn’t happen, and Philadelphia ultimately sent Boston the rights to the Lakers’ 2018 pick if it falls between Nos. 2 and 5.

No. 3 — Boston Celtics (via 76ers, via Kings)

  • The Celtics traded the No. 1 pick (via Brooklyn) to the 76ers in exchange for the No. 3 pick and a future first-rounder on Monday.
  • Philadelphia acquired swap rights for the Kings’ 2017 first-rounder back in 2015 as part of a salary dump trade that also sent Nik Stauskas, Carl Landry, and Jason Thompson to the 76ers. Sacramento signed Rajon Rondo, Kosta Koufos, and Marco Belinelli with the cap space created.

No. 4 — Phoenix Suns

No. 5 — Sacramento Kings (via 76ers, via Magic, via 76ers again)

  • The 76ers originally owned this pick, then traded it to Orlando for Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson as part of the 2012 Dwight Howard trade.
  • During the 2014 NBA draft, the 76ers received the pick back by dealing the rights to Elfrid Payton to the Magic for Dario Saric and this pick.
  • The 76ers then exercised their swap option with the Kings as part of the aforementioned trade for Stauskas, Landry, and Thompson.

No. 10 — Sacramento Kings (via Pelicans)

  • The Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway, Tyreke Evans, and this pick.

No. 20 — Portland Trail Blazers (via Nuggets, via Cavaliers, via Grizzlies)

  • Portland traded Mason Plumlee and a 2018 second-round pick in a questionable 2017 trade deadline deal with the Denver Nuggets for Jusuf Nurkic and this pick.
  • The Nuggets originally received this pick as part of a 2015 trade that sent Timofey Mozgov to the Cavaliers.
  • Cleveland had it because it sent Jon Leuer and a $6.4 million trade exception to the Grizzlies for this pick, Marreese Speights, Josh Selby, and Wayne Ellington in 2013. The Grizzlies were trying to trim salary to avoid the luxury tax.

No. 22 — Brooklyn Nets (via Wizards)

  • The Nets traded Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough to the Wizards for Marcus Thornton, Andrew Nicholson, and this pick at the 2017 trade deadline.

No. 23 — Toronto Raptors (via Bucks, via Clippers)

  • The Raptors traded Greivis Vasquez to the Bucks in 2015 for Norman Powell and this pick. (Good job, Masai Ujiri!)
  • The Bucks received this selection when the Clippers, in a silly attempt to duck under the luxury tax, dealt Carlos Delfino, Miroslav Raduljica, and a second-round pick in 2014 for Jared Dudley and this pick before the 2013-14 season.

No. 25 — Orlando Magic (via Raptors)

  • The Magic traded Serge Ibaka to the Raptors for Terrence Ross and this pick at the 2017 trade deadline.
  • It should be noted Orlando acquired Ibaka from the Oklahoma City Thunder during last year’s draft for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova, and the No. 11 pick in 2016 (Domantas Sabonis). So they effectively traded those three players for Ross and pick No. 25 this year. Well done!

No. 26 — Portland Trail Blazers (via Cavaliers, but this one gets confusing

  • The Trail Blazers traded Cleveland’s 2018 first-round pick back to the Cavaliers for Cleveland’s 2017 first-rounder (this pick).
  • The Cavaliers originally sent their 2018 pick to Portland as an add-on to shed Anderson Varejao’s contract in 2016, which created the room to acquire Channing Frye from Orlando. The Trail Blazers only gave up a 2020 second-round pick in that trade.
  • Cleveland then needed their 2018 pick back in February so they could trade their 2019 first-round pick to the Hawks for Kyle Korver.

No. 27 — Los Angeles Lakers (via Nets, via Celtics)

  • The Lakers agreed to trade D’Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov to the Nets for Brook Lopez and this pick on Tuesday.
  • Brooklyn was forced to swap picks with the Celtics as part of the 2013 Garnett-Pierce trade.

No. 28 — Los Angeles Lakers (via Rockets)

  • The Lakers traded Lou Williams to the Rockets for Corey Brewer and this pick at the 2017 trade deadline.

No. 30 — Utah Jazz (via Warriors)

  • This was one of five draft picks the Jazz acquired as part of the three-team sign-and-trade that sent Andre Iguodala to the Warriors in the summer of 2013.

No. 31 -- Charlotte Hornets (via Nets, via Hawks)

  • This second-round pick swap with Brooklyn was enabled by its 2013 trade for Joe Johnson.
  • The Hornets acquired the selection from Atlanta on Tuesday in the Dwight Howard deal.

No. 33 — Orlando Magic (via Lakers)

  • This pick was one last relic of the 2012 Dwight Howard deal. Had the Lakers fallen out of the top three this year, it would have turned into a 2019 first-rounder. But because lottery luck smiled on L.A., that instead turned into two second-rounders. This is the first.

No. 34 -- Sacramento Kings (via 76ers, via Pelicans)

  • This is another small part of this year’s DeMarcus Cousins trade. New Orleans originally received it from Philadelphia in exchange for Ish Smith in 2016.

No. 36 — Philadelphia 76ers (via Knicks, Raptors, Jazz)

  • This began as a small part of the disastrous Andrea Bargnani trade in 2014 and has since changed hands in multiple salary dumps.

No. 37 — Boston Celtics (via Timberwolves, via Suns)

  • Boston received this in exchange for Brandan Wright in January, 2015.

No. 37 - Chicago Bulls (via Kings, via Cavaliers)

  • This comes from the Luol Deng to Cavaliers trade in 2014.

No. 38 - Philadelphia 76ers (via Mavericks)

  • The 76ers received this in the Nerlens Noel trade at the 2017 deadline.

No. 41 - Atlanta Hawks (via Hornets)

  • The Hornets and Hawks swapped this pick and No. 31 as part of the Dwight Howard trade on Tuesday.

No. 42 - Utah Jazz (via Pistons)

  • This was a small part of a three-team trade at the 2015 deadline that sent Reggie Jackson to Detroit and Enes Kanter to Oklahoma City.

No. 43 - Houston Rockets (via Nuggets)

  • The Rockets received this selection along with Ty Lawson in the summer of 2015. They traded Nick Johnson, Kostas Papanikolaou, Pablo Prigioni, Joey Dorsey, and the No. 15 pick in last year’s draft (Juancho Hernangomez).

No. 44 - New York Knicks (via Bulls)

  • This was a small part of last June’s Derrick Rose trade.

No. 45 - Houston Rockets (via Blazers)

  • Remember the Thomas Robinson trade in 2013? Yeah, me neither. But apparently this pick was involved!

No. 46 - Philadelphia 76ers (via Heat, via Hawks)

  • The 76ers acquired this pick for Ersan Ilyasova at this year’s deadline.
  • Miami dealt this pick on draft day in 2013 to move up to select James Ennis.

No. 49 - Denver Nuggets (via Grizzlies, via Thunder)

  • Denver sent Joffrey Lauvergne to Oklahoma City last August in exchange for two second-round picks. This is one of them.

No. 50 - Philadelphia 76ers (via Hawks)

  • This also arrived in this year’s Ilyasova trade.

No. 51 - Denver Nuggets (via Thunder)

  • Denver sent Joffrey Lauvergne to Oklahoma City last August in exchange for two second-round picks. This is the other.

No. 52 - New Orleans Pelicans (via Wizards)

  • This pick was traded on Wednesday! Washington picked up Tim Frazier, who can back up John Wall next year.

No. 53 - Boston Celtics (via Cavaliers)

  • There was apparently a Keith Bogans trade in September of 2014.

No. 54 - Phoenix Suns (via Raptors)

  • This was one of two second-round picks the Suns received for P.J. Tucker at this year’s deadline.

No. 56 - Boston Celtics (via Clippers)

  • L.A. gave this selection up in the Austin Rivers trade in 2015.

No. 57 - Brooklyn Nets (via Celtics)

  • This was also in the massive Pierce/Garnett deal in 2013. Who knew?

No. 58 - New York Knicks (via Rockets)

  • The Knicks got this when they traded Pablo Prigioni to Houston at the 2015 deadline.

No. 60 - Atlanta Hawks (via Warriors, Jazz, 76ers)

  • Nobody wants the last pick in the draft, apparently.
