The NBA trade deadline passed Thursday afternoon, and perhaps the biggest news was who didn't get traded: New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis.

Talks with the Los Angeles Lakers fell apart, meaning Davis' next destination (Boston Celtics? New York Knicks?) will remain one of the hottest topics in basketball well into the offseason.

Still, there were plenty of fireworks as the NBA's top teams brought in major reinforcements for the stretch run -- starting with the Philadelphia 76ers' acquisition of Tobias Harris early Wednesday and culminating in All-Star center Marc Gasol heading to the Toronto Raptors mere hours before the deadline -- and a recent No. 1 pick got a fresh start. 

Here's a roundup of the most important trades: 

Philadelphia 76ers get: Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, Mike Scott; Los Angeles Clippers get Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, Sixers' 2020 protected first-round pick, unprotected 2021 first-round pick (via the Miami Heat), 2021 second-round pick, 2023 second-round pick (Analysis by Philadelphia's 94 WIP)

Detroit Pistons get: Thon Maker; Milwaukee Bucks get: Stanley Johnson (Breakdown by Detroit's 97.1 The Ticket)

Miami Heat get: Ryan Anderson; Phoenix Suns get: Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington (Analysis by Miami's 560 WQAM)

Chicago Bulls get: Otto Porter Jr.; Washington Wizards get: Bobby Portis, Jabari Parker, 2023 second-round pick (Breakdown by Chicago's 670 The Score)

Houston Rockets get: Iman Shumpert, Nik Stauskus and Wade Baldwin; Cleveland Cavaliers get: Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, a lottery-protected first-round pick and a second-round pick; Sacramento Kings get: Alec Burks (Breakdown by Houston's SportsRadio 610

(The Rockets later flipped Stauskas and Baldwin -- who started the week on the Portland Trail Blazers -- to the Indiana Pacers, their fourth team in four days.)

Sacramento Kings get: Harrison Barnes; Dallas Mavericks get: Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph (Story by Dallas' 105.3 The Fan on the peculiar scene of Barnes getting traded during the game, much to the consternation of LeBron James; Barnes had opted to play despite knowing a trade was imminent.) 

New Orleans Pelicans get: Markieff Morris; New Orleans Pelicans get: Wesley Johnson (Breakdown by Washington's 106.7 The Fan)

Milwaukee Bucks get: Nikola Mirotic; New Orleans Pelicans get: Jason Smith, Stanley Johnson, multiple second-round picks (Breakdown by Milwaukee's 105.7 The Fan)

Toronto Raptors get: Marc Gasol; Memphis Grizzlies get: Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a 2024 second-round pick (Breakdown by Memphis' 92.9 FM)

(The Grizzlies also sent Garrett Temple and JaMychal Green to the Los Angeles Clippers for Avery Bradley, and sent Shelvin Mack to the Atlanta Hawks. More importantly: The Grizzlies held onto star point guard Mike Conley.)

Orlando Magic get: Markelle Fultz; Philadelphia 76ers get: Jonathon Simmons, a first-round pick and a second-round pick (Breakdown by Philadelphia's 94 WIP)

Now, the NBA segues into buyout season, with high-priced veterans sure to be on the move.
