Complete List of the 2009 Draft Day Trades:
The Orlando Magic acquired Vince Carter from the New Jersey Nets in exchange for Rafer Alston, Courtney Lee and Tony Battie.

Meanwhile, before NBA Draft 2009 commence later, a few trades occured, aiming to slah payroll for some teams or seek help in their lineup.

As expected, the Washington Wizards trade their No. 5 pick in this year's draft, plus Oleksiy Pecherov, Etan Thomas and Darius Songaila, to hte Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Randy Foye and Mike Miller. This should help the Wiz, as they were looking for veteran perimeter help while getting rid of expiring contracts.

The Milwaukee Bucks, needing to go under luxury tax line, sent Richard Jefferson to the Spurs for Kurt Thomas, Fabricio Oberto and Bruce Bowen. This will help the Spurs to take some pressure off an ageing Tim Duncan and oft-injured Manu Ginobili.

Then the Bucks sent Oberto to the Detroit Pistons for forward Amir Johnson. The Pistons buy out Oberto off his contract, thus making him a free agent and possibly go back to the Spurs.
