No All-Star Traded At Deadline For First Time Since 2007
The NBA trade deadline came and went without a career All-Star selection being traded for the first time since 2007.
J.J. Redick was the biggest name player dealt at the deadline, going to the Milwaukee Bucks in a six-player trade.
Thomas Robinson, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, was traded to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
Josh Smith, one of the NBA's best players without a career All-Star selection, had been rumored to be traded for weeks but was held by the Atlanta Hawks.
Gerald Wallace, an All-Star in 2010, was traded last season. The 2011 deadline saw All-Stars in Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams and Chauncey Billups traded.
Many blamed the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement for the lack of activity as teams have avoided taking on long-term money in fear of the luxury tax.
