Dwain Price: The #Mavs have acquired F James Johnson from OKC in a 3-team trade. The Mavs shipped F Justin Jackson to OKC and G Delon Wright to the Pistons, who sent F Trevor Ariza to OKC. The Thunder also received a 2023 2nd-round pick from DAL or Miami, and a 2026 2nd-round pick from DAL.
Marc Stein: One more time amid the madness so we're all clear: Dallas gets James Johnson (from OKC) Detroit gets Delon Wright (from Dallas) OKC gets Trevor Ariza (from Detroit), Justin Jackson (Dallas) and draft compensation to be explained later
Nate Duncan: By trading for James Johnson, Dallas clears Delon Wright's $8.5m for 2021-22. With that an Curry trade, now project for $35m in space in 2021.
Marc Stein: Oklahoma City has agreed to trade James Johnson to Dallas for Delon Wright and Justin Jackson, league sources say
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Memphis and Dallas are agreed on a sign-and-trade for G Delon Wright. Dallas will send Memphis two second-round picks.
The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday they have acquired centre Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for centre Jonas Valanciunas, guard Delon Wright, forward C.J. Miles and a 2024 second-round draft pick.
Michael Grange: Norm Powell on learning his pal Delon got traded: "It’s just weird. I was literally playing FIFA with him before the trade and then he’s gone ... I saw him before I left for the game and that’s that."
Josh Lewenberg: If Bulls are looking to unload $, Raps could offer $5-6M in cap relief for Taj Gibson (~$9M) but would need to send a young player or 2 back. Bulls have asked about Delon Wright in the past, according to a source, so the sophomore PG's name could come up if the Raptors call.
One scenario has Young being moved to Toronto for a package that could include Patrick Patterson and point guard Delon Wright. The Nets may want a first round pick and Toronto just happens to own the Knicks 2016 first round pick.

Now, in a recent Instagram post, Durant was less reserved in his criticism of Barkley. BasketballNews.com’s Etan Thomas posted about Barkley’s recent comment that NBA players “deserve some preferential treatment” when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine because of how much they pay in taxes. “Yea, that’ll go over well Barkley smh,” Thomas wrote in the caption. In the comments, Durant responded: “I don’t know why they still ask for this idiot’s opinion.”
Today, on a different IG post, Durant seemed to weigh in on the exchange between Shaq and Mitchell. “Them old heads need to go enjoy retirement,” Durant commented. “These boys have coaches they work with everyday lol.” LeBron James also weighed in: “There’s a difference between constructive criticism and soft hating though. I’ve seen it both ways come my way, mostly the hate. You can hear it in their delivery.”
