Things have finally started to get a little weird during the 2019 NBA Draft. As the late first round has gotten underway, we finally have some trades.

Unfortunately, they aren’t the kind of spicy, big trades that folks were probably looking for.

In one such example, the Brooklyn Nets traded the No. 27 overall pick to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers then selected Florida State Seminoles product Mfiondu Kabengele with that pick.

As compensation, the Clippers sent Brooklyn a 2020 first round pick from the Philadelphia 76ers in addition to the 56th overall pick of the second round in 2019.
