With the trade deadline just a day away, various teams throughout the NBA are trying their best to get deals done in order to improve their teams. Late last night, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, and Denver Nuggets came together for a 12-player trade that was one of the biggest in the NBA’s history, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Below, you can see how the trade breaks down.
Houston Rockets get: Robert Covington, Jordan Bell

Denver Nuggets get: Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh, Keita Bates-Diop, Shabazz Napier, first-round pick from Rockets.

Meanwhile, the Timberwolves and the Nuggets get the large bulk of the players.
