The NBA trade deadline is today at 3pm ET as teams try to acquire players that can help them win a championship or assets to build for the future.

With 25 former Duke Blue Devils currently in the NBA, there was a good chance or two may be traded this season.

In the one of the bigger trades so far, Justise Winslow is part of a deal that will see him join his former 2015 National Championship teammates Grayson Allen and Tyus Jones in Memphis:

Winslow, who has missed quite a few games in his young career due to injury, seems to be excited about the trade:

In another move, the Atlanta Hawks have traded Jabari Parker to the Sacramento Kings:

Parker will join Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles, but it may not be for long as a few teams have inquired about acquiring Giles.

These trades give the Grizzlies and Kings three Blue Devils each, only trailing the New Orleans Pelicans (5) for most Duke players on their current roster.
