The 2022-23 NBA trade deadline has passed. And ... wow.

Let's break down the biggest moves as the dust settles on one of the wildest deadline weeks in league history.

Early Thursday morning, the Brooklyn Nets traded Kevin Durant and T.J. Warren to the Phoenix Suns for forwards Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges and Jae Crowder, four first-round picks and a 2028 pick swap in a blockbuster deal.

On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers agreed to a deal to land Minnesota's D'Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt in a trade that also sent Mike Conley and picks to the Timberwolves along with Russell Westbrook and a 2027 first-round pick to the Utah Jazz.

Later Wednesday, the Portland Trail Blazers sent Josh Hart to the New York Knicks for Cam Reddish and a future first-round pick.

This past weekend, the Brooklyn Nets traded All-Star guard Kyrie Irving and Markieff Morris to the Dallas Mavericks for Dorian Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie and draft picks, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The shocking move brings a sudden end to Irving's drama-filled four seasons in Brooklyn, which produced a lone playoff series win alongside Kevin Durant. Meanwhile, the Mavericks land the co-star they've needed next to Luka Doncic since Jalen Brunson's departure via free agency last summer -- but it's at the risk of hampering their ability to make a trade for a more reliable star down the road.
