  • Gaining pistons Galen Doreen And the Kimba Walker.
  • The Knicks take home the Bucks in the first round of 2025 (top four are protected; from the Pistons).
  • The Hornets had the 2023 first-round Nuggets pick (top 14 protected), the Knicks’ second-round pick 2023, the 2023 second-round Jazz’s pick, either the Mavericks or Heat’s 2023 second-round pick (whichever is more favorable), and the Knicks’ second-round pick Second round in 2024 (all from Knicks).
