6:05 p.m. — All told, there were just 16 trades this year, the fewest number of deals since 2000 when there were 12 trades. By comparison, last year there was a record number of trades, 31. This year, 35 players (the lowest since 2004) and12 draft picks changed teams . Last year saw 55 players change teams, also a record. But, while this day was slower, between Feb. 9 and 22, there were 18 deals involving 35 players and 14 draft choices, so there was a lot of movement this month. And the real impact day was Feb. 18 (and 19) when some big deals were made. Anyway, that’s it for deadline day, and thanks for hanging with us. We had 10s of thousands of page views, so we hope you all like what we did today. See you tomorrow.
