The NBA’s trade deadline is at 2:00 on Thursday, and in his previous six deadlines as Rockets general manager, Daryl Morey has not allowed it to pass without making a deal. In total, he has made 11 trades over those six trade deadlines. Here are all of those trades and the impact that they had.

2008

Deal: Acquired Gerald Green from Minnesota for Kirk Snyder and a 2nd round pick

Impact: Green played in 1 game for the Rockets

Deal: Acquired Bobby Jackson from New Orleans for Mike James and Bonzi Wells

Impact: This was a 3-team deal that involved other pieces, but they aren’t relevant today. Jackson was brought in to be Rafter Alston’s backup and actually started a couple of playoff games. His biggest impact came that summer when he was part of the Ron Artest trade.

2009

Deal: Acquired Kyle Lowry from Memphis and Brian Cook from Orlando, while sending Rafer Alston to Orlando.

Impact:  The key to the deal was Lowry who turned into a great point guard and helped the Rockets get James Harden. Cook didn’t play much and was bought out the next season. Important to remember that Alston helped get the Magic to the Finals.

2010

Deal: Acquired Kevin Martin and Hilton Armstrong from Sacramento for Carl Landry and Joey Dorsey

Deal: Acquired Jordan Hill, Jared Jeffries and a 1st round pick from New York for Tracy McGrady

Impact: This was a 3-team deal that you easily break up into two separate trades. Martin had his moments as a Rocket, but was a little disappointing. Hill was very average and will make a second appearance in this, Jeffries was a throw-in, but the biggest disaster of the trade was the first round pick; that became Royce White.

2011

Deal: Acquired Hasheem Thabeet, DeMarre Carroll and a 1st round pick for Shane Battier.

Impact: Thabeet was awful, while Carroll played in just five games, and has since become a pretty good player. The Rockets traded the pick to Minnesota that Summer, which helped them get Jonny Flynn and Donatas Montiejunas. It was pretty much a nothing trade for the Rockets, but Battier helped Memphis upset San Antonio in the playoffs.

Deal: Acquired Goran Dragic and a 1st round pick from Phoenix for Aaron Brooks

Impact: Both point guards are now back with their original teams. Dragic turned into a great player and went back to Phoenix as a free agent, the pick the Rockets got was used in the Flynn/Montiejunas deal. Brooks’ career has pretty much stalled.

2012

Deal: Acquired Derek Fisher and a 1st round pick from LA Lakers for Jordan Hill

Impact: Fisher never played a game for the Rockets and the pick was used in the Harden trade. Hill has turned himself into a decent bench guy for LA.

Deal: Acquired Marcus Camby from Portland for Flynn, Thabeet, and a 2nd round pick

Impact: Camby played well as a Rocket, and the second round pick turned into Will Barton, who has been a non-factor for Portland this season.

2013

Deal: Acquired Thomas Robinson, Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt from Sacramento for Patrick Patterson, Cole Aldrich and Toney Douglass.

Impact: The deal was supposed to be about Robinson, but it has turned into the Francisco Garcia trade. He’s the one who made an impact, and he’s the one that is still here.

Deal: Acquired a 2nd round pick for Marcus Morris

Impact: Rockets used the pick on Isiah Canaan.
