WATCH: Grading Sixers, Knicks, Celtics after 2017 NBA trade deadline

It's time to judge some of the most high-profile Taraftarium executives in the NBA.

When the lead up to the 2017 NBA trade deadline began, it wasn't hard to imagine Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo, Knicks team president Phil Jackson and Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge making headlines.

Unfortunately for their respective fan bases, the headlines generated at Thursday's NBA trade deadline weren't positive.

In Philadelphia, the Sixers dealt a big man--but chose to move Nerlens Noel instead of Jahlil Okafor.

In New York, it was all smoke, but no fire around potential Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose trades.

Knicks lose at deadline

In Boston, Ainge chose to hold on to a slew of assets instead of doing whatever it took to land a difference-making player.

With the winners and losers of the deadline around the league evident, watch the video above for grades on three of the big-name decision makers in professional basketball.
