The full details of the Klay Thompson trade were finally revealed, and because of the way things played out, the Charlotte Hornets are officially a part of NBA history.

The trade, which originally included the Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, and Hornets, brought Josh Green to Charlotte. But now, there are more teams involved.

Klay Thompson trade is first six-team trade in NBA history, and Hornets getting Josh Green is part of it

The Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers, and Minnesota Timberwolves were also included in the deal, making it the first six-team trade in NBA history.

Here are the full details of the final trade:

Josh Green

Reggie Jackson

2029 second-round pick

2030 second-round pick

Mavericks receive: 

Klay Thompson

2025 second-round pick

Warriors receive:

Timberwolves receive:

2025 second-round pick

2031 second-round pick swaps


76ers receive:

2031 second-round pick

Charlotte’s involvement in the trade is a great way for them to add more young talent and invest in their current core. Green’s defense and playmaking at the shooting guard position will pair nicely with LaMelo Ball.

Green could easily step into the starting lineup for the Hornets, allowing them to roll out a first five of Ball, Green, Brandon Miller, Miles Bridges, and Mark Williams.

It’s clear that the Hornets want to invest in their youth movement, and Green fits in nicely with that. The 23-year-old shooting guard should have more responsibilities in Charlotte as well.

As for the rest of the deal, the Mavericks’ acquisition of Thompson is the biggest move. Thompson will join Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving, and the rest of the roster, which just competed in the NBA Finals.

Thompson’s elite three-point shooting will pair beautifully next to the Mavericks’ guard duo, which desperately needed more perimeter threats in the Finals.

The next-best set of acquisitions in the trade goes to the Warriors, who landed two impact players in Kyle Anderson and De’Anthony Melton, both of whom will help them replace the impact Thompson had on the court.

None of the other teams involved received players in the deal. They just got picks and/or cash, and were included in the move for a variety of reasons.
