NBA Early-Season-Trade Grades

Ethan NorofCorrespondent IDecember 23, 2016

There was a ton of movement around the NBA during the 2012 offseason, and now that we're into the 2012-13 season, it's time to dish out grades for each big deal.

Joe Johnson calls Brooklyn his home now, James Harden is with the Houston Rockets, Dwight Howard is carving out a new life in Los Angeles with the Lakers, and Andrew Bynum is out in Philadelphia riding pine for the Sixers as he waits for his knees fully recover.

While the Orlando Magic didn't get the most familiar names in return for their former franchise star, first-year GM Rob Hennigan did well not to burden his franchise with a max-salary player.

How did your favorite team grade out from their big offseason move? Watch NBA assistant editor Ethan Norof hand out the grades.
