The NBA trade deadline passed at 3pm ET on Thursday and surprisingly there weren’t as many deals made as expected. Dwight Howard signed an agreement saying he won’t opt out of his contract after the season, so he stayed with the Magic. However, Orlando failed to acquire any additional help. The Lakers and Blazers were two big movers on Thursday.

The Lakers got a new point guard in Ramon Sessions and jettisoned Derek Fisher to Houston. While it hurts Lakers fans sentimentally, it’s a good move for the team — they needed point guard help desperately and Ramon Sessions can provide that. Portland made several changes, including firing coach Nate McMillan, and dealing two of their better players in Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby. Though the Nets are getting Wallace, his contract expires after the season, giving Deron Williams less incentive to re-sign with New Jersey. Lastly, the Spurs always spoke fondly of Stephen Jackson, and now they’re getting him back. He hasn’t worked out well in his last few stops, but maybe he’ll play well in San Antonio under Gregg Popovich.

Below is a rundown of every NBA trade made Thursday before the deadline:

Lakers get Ramon Sessions, Christian Eyenga from Cavaliers
