PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- The NBA trade deadline came and went at 3 p.m. on Thursday without many of the major deals that were rumored (Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol, Luol Deng, Iman Shumpert) ever taking place.

RT @WindhorstESPN: Knicks weren't able to complete any trades by today's deadline. Lots of talk with Iman Shumpert but no deals— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 20, 2014
The second-biggest deal of the day probably came early on when the Philadelphia 76ers traded Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Earl Clark, Henry Sims and two second-round picks.

According to reports, Philadelphia was also involved in what could be the most impactful trade of the day.
Y! Sources: Indiana trades Danny Granger to Philadelphia for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. http://t.co/WolYMemvqv— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 20, 2014
Indiana was already good, but Turner could be the key piece that helps put them over the top and allows the team to give the Miami Heat a real run for their money in the Eastern Conference playoffs this season.
Miami made a trade as well.
The Miami Heat have reportedly traded Roger Mason Jr. to the Kings to create an open roster spot. http://t.co/Llf9C7Fzs4— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) February 20, 2014
