2021 NBA trade deadline – Players react to deals on social media


The trade deadline is always a stressful time for NBA players, many of whom don’t know whether they’ll be playing in the same city or searching for a new place to live before the 3 p.m. deadline. Thanks to the wonders of social media, that stress can sometimes play out live in front of a worldwide audience.

The star of NBA Twitter on Thursday had to be Orlando Magic guard Terrence Ross, who seemed like the only longtime Magic player who was NOT traded on deadline day. Ross tweeted through it as best he could.

The story was the same in Chicago, where All-Star Zach LaVine watched much of the roster change around him.

Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum was sleeping on the action — literally.

That left teammate Jusuf Nurkic to bid farewell to Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood, who were traded to the Toronto Raptors.

Multiple Denver Nuggets players appeared saddened by the departure of longtime teammate Gary Harris, who is headed to Orlando in the deal to bring Aaron Gordon to Denver.
