Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

A handful of players frequently mentioned as trade candidates in the weeks leading up to the deadline stayed put today, according to various reports.

The Clippers have held onto center DeAndre Jordan through the deadline, a league source tells ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link). The team had privately maintained throughout the process that it was fine hanging onto Jordan if no appealing offers surfaced, so this isn’t a huge shock. The next key deadline for Jordan will arrive this summer, as he decides whether to exercise his $24MM+ player option or turn it down to hit to the free agent market.

Tyreke Evans is staying put in Memphis, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN (Twitter link). This decision is a little more surprising, since the Grizzlies had held Evans out of action for the last week in anticipation of moving him. However, it appears they never received the first-round pick they were seeking. Wojnarowski reported earlier todaythat Memphis may try to re-sign Evans using its mid-level exception this July.

The Hawks made some small deals today, but trade candidate Marco Belinelli remains on the roster, per Sam Amick of USA Today (Twitter link). There were reportedly a handful of teams with interest in Belinelli, but perhaps the offers Atlanta received risked adding salary to the team’s cap for 2018/19.

We’ll wait to see if word of any other deals trickles in now that the deadline has passed, but for now it looks like several other trade candidates aren’t going anywhere either. That list includes Avery Bradley, Kenneth Faried, Derrick Favors, and Evan Fournier, among many others.
