Several members of the Brotherhood are with new teams tonight, traded just before the NBA deadline.

We think this is everyone:

Wendell Carter to Orlando, Gary Trent and Rodney Hood from Portland to Toronto, Austin Rivers to Oklahoma City and JJ Redick from New Orleans to Dallas.

That’s great news for Carter, who gets a fresh start away from Chicago’s mess, and Redick will get to play with another of the NBA’s brilliant rising stars in Luka Docic, after running with Zion Williamson for almost two seasons or at least parts of two seasons. It should be interesting to hear his take on the two when he’s had more time with the Mavericks.
