Vote: Who won and lost at the NBA trade deadline?

The dust of the 2017 NBA trade deadline is finally settling, and it's time to determine the winners, losers and biggest surprises of all the deals that were made (and not made) before the clock struck 3 p.m. ET Thursday.

The general managers are done making moves, and now you get to be an armchair executive and decide who fared best at the deadline. Vote now!

While the New Orleans Pelicans' deal for DeMarcus Cousins sent reverberations throughout the league, the Toronto Raptors' acquisitions of Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker could help them compete against the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Eastern Conference title. And the Houston Rockets helped their bench with the acquisition of Lou Williams from the Lakers as they hope to better their chances against the Golden State Warriors.

On the other side, many criticized the Kings for what they received in the Cousins deal, and the Philadelphia 76ers failed to capitalize on Nerlens Noel's value and likely won't see the first-round pick they acquired in return.

Rumors swirled around several star players, but the hot name leading up to the deadline was Paul George, who ended up staying in Indiana. The Boston Celtics were the team most linked to George, but they ended up not making any deals. The Cavs stood pat at the deadline, having already dealt for Kyle Korver, and will look to bolster their roster in the free-agent market.
