The NBA’s trade deadline came and went Thursday without a season-changing deal. In question-and-answer form, here’s a look at what happened:
Q: SO, THE TRADE DEADLINE HIT THURSDAY AFTERNOON. THERE WAS A LOT OF ACTION, RIGHT?

Redick was the biggest name that was moved, going from Orlando to Milwaukee.
