Rumors ran rampant during the flurry of activity leading up to the NBA's trade deadline, but in the end, few moves were made.

Washington moved shooting guard Jordan Crawford, but many of the bigger names with much speculation stayed in the same place. 

Many thought this might be the year for the Celtics franchise to rebuild an aging championship core, with both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce named in trade rumors. In the end, Garnett, Pierce and even injured point guard Rajon Rondo stayed with the Celtics. 

Atlanta's Josh Smith was another name involved in a lot of trade talk, but a deal was never reached.
