Eye on Basketball Podcast: Day of the Deadline

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

The trade deadline has come and gone and we're left with a very dissatisfied feeling from the (lack of) moves that happened. Matt Moore joins me to dissect the deals that went down before the trade deadline passed. Is Andre Miller a big deal with the Washington Wizards? What were the Philadelphia 76ers doing not trading Thaddeus Young? Did they get enough return for Spencer Hawes? Why were the Charlotte Bobcats so intent on getting Gary Neal? Is Steve Blake going to the Golden State Warriors one of the best moves?

The biggest move of the day was definitely the Indiana Pacers grabbing Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen for Danny Granger. Will Granger be bought out of his expiring deal, and if so, where will he go? Can the Pacers develop Turner in a short amount of time? Does he fit in well with Indiana? Should the Pacers feel pressured to retain Lance Stephenson this summer with Turner as a backup option?

We discuss all of this, plus the Russell Westbrook's return, Burt Wonderstone, and preview tonight's games.
