Noel is headed to the Mavericks for Justin Anderson, Andrew Bogut and a protected first-round pick.
Analysis: Noel never quite got the chance to thrive with the 76ers due to injuries and a variety of other factors. But he can jump out of the gym and is headed to an interesting situation in Dallas, which has long coveted Noel. If he's healthy, he should thrive, though that's a big if.
Anderson is headed to the 76ers along with Andrew Bogut and a protected first-round pick for Nerlens Noel.
Analysis: Anderson never quite got going with the Mavs, shooting just above 40 percent in his first season and a half and struggling from 3. Playing time will be available for him in Philly, so the rest of this season and next will be key to telling if he has a future as a rotation player.

McDermott and Taj Gibson are headed to the Thunder for Cameron Payne and Joffrey Lauvergne.

Payne and Joffrey Lauvergne are headed to the Bulls for Doug McDermott and Taj Gibson.
Analysis: Payne never quite developed into a starting-level point guard in Oklahoma City due to injuries and Russell Westbrook. With no such impediment in his way in Chicago, Payne should be able to have a chance to thrive if he's healthy.
Tucker was traded to the Raptors for Jared Sullinger and a pair of second-round picks. It's uncertain whether Tucker will be able to make his Raptors debut Friday against Boston after taking a late flight Thursday night.
Analysis: Toronto thinks Tucker can be the guy to man up LeBron James in a potential playoff series, and they better be right, because he offers little offensively.
