The 2022-23 NBA trade season is rolling, so let's go into more detail about which players are on the move ahead of Thursday's deadline at 3 p.m. ET.

On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers agreed a deal to land Minnesota's D'Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt in a trade that also sent Mike Conley and picks to the Timberwolves along with Russell Westbrook and a 2027 first-round pick to the Utah Jazz.

Later Wednesday, the Portland Trail Blazers sent Josh Hart to the New York Knicks for Cam Reddish and a future first-round pick.

This past weekend, the Brooklyn Nets traded All-Star guard Kyrie Irving and Markieff Morris to the Dallas Mavericks for Dorian Finney-Smith, Spencer Dinwiddie and draft picks, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The shocking move brings a sudden end to Irving's drama-filled four seasons in New York, which produced a lone playoff series win alongside Kevin Durant. Meanwhile, the Mavericks land the co-star they've needed next to Luka Doncic since Jalen Brunson's departure via free agency last summer -- but it's at the risk of hampering their ability to make a trade for a more reliable star down the road.

Late last month, the Lakers agreed to a deal to acquire Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura for Kendrick Nunn and three second-round picks, sources told ESPN.

Earlier in January, the Boston Celtics sent Noah Vonleh to the San Antonio Spurs to lower their luxury tax bill (Vonleh was immediately waived by San Antonio).

ESPN NBA Insider Kevin Pelton is following the transactions as they happen and is grading all the biggest trades.
