Thursday's NBA trade deadline did not disappoint with NBA players moving all over the place.

The result? A ton of players making their debut with new teams.

Below, you can find some of the top performances by players in new uniforms, along with each games' result!

Landry Shamet's LA Clippers debut

Result: Clippers 123, Celtics 112

Stat line: 17 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3PT, 3-4 FT) - three assists, two rebounds, one steal

Other players making their debut in this game: Ivica Zubac (LAC)

Shamet was cold blooded in his Clippers' debut.

The undrafted rookie helped spark a 28-point comeback, the largest in Clippers' franchise history, to defeat the Celtics in Boston.

He scored 13 points in the final quarter including multiple clutch 3-pointers to either tie it up or take the lead late in the game. Zubac earned the start for his new squad tonight and posted solid numbers as well.

The young centre scored 12 points to go with nine rebounds and three blocks.

Clippers fans might be upset that they moved Tobias Harris, but they got two terrific young players with bright futures in return.

Marc Gasol's Toronto Raptors debut

Result: Raptors 104, Knicks 99

Stat line: Seven points (3-7 FG) - six rebounds, two steals, one block, one assist

Other players making debut in this game: None

Gasol's stat line does not do his Raptors' debut any justice.

In 19 minutes of playing time, the veteran centre did a fantastic job defending in the post as well as passing out of the low and high post.

Gasol had a number of potential assists that his Raptor teammates did not finish but it was still an encouraging showing of his playmaking ability.

He also had a strong defensive performance as an anchor and rim protector for the second unit. Once Gasol learns the offensive plays and defensive schemes, he should fit perfectly into this lineup.

Tobias Harris' Philadelphia 76ers debut

Result: 76ers 117, Nuggets 110

Stat line: 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-3 3PT) - eight rebounds, three assists, one steal

Other players making a debut in this game: Boban Marjanovic (PHI), James Ennis (PHI), Mike Scott (PHI)

Harris' 76ers' debut went exactly as planned, chipping in a solid 14 points and eight boards. But it wasn't his stat line that will blow you away - it was his presence of having another versatile scorer on the floor that free'd up his teammate J.J. Redick for the night that he had (34 points) in the win.

Marjanovic and Ennis both played 15 minutes and Scott played 16 minutes off the bench. Marjanovic had four points, two rebounds and a block, Ennis had six points, three rebounds and two assists and Scott had two points and an assist.

It seems the Sixers' deadline moves will pay off sooner than later.

Bobby Portis' Washington Wizards debut

Result: Wizards 119, Cavaliers 106

Stat line: 30 points (12-18 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-2 FT) - six rebounds, two assists, one steal

Other players making a debut in this game: Marquese Chriss (CLE), Jabari Parker (WAS)

This probably wasn't a name you were expecting to see on this list but Portis showed out in his Wizards' debut.

In his first five minutes as a member of the Wizards, he was 5-for-5 with 14 points. He finished with a team-high 30 points to lead his team to a win.

Parker had a solid Wizards debut as well stuffing the stat-sheet with seven points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one block. Chriss added value for the Cavaliers too - he finished with 13 points and eight boards in 23 minutes of play.

Otto Porter's Chicago Bulls debut

Result: Bulls 125, Nets 106

Stat line: 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3PT) - four rebounds, one assist

Other players making a debut in this game: None

Porter showed out in his Bulls' debut playing a key role in a road win over an Eastern Conference playoff team. He was efficient in scoring 18 points, knocking down four 3-pointers and shooting 77.8 percent from the field.

Porter's play was solid but it was Lauri Markkanen who carried the Bulls through this game. He finished with a double-double of 31 points and 18 rebounds, his third consecutive 30-point game.

Also worth mentioning is that Caris LeVert (as you can see above) made his return from his grueling injury back in November. LeVert had 11 points, five steals, four assists and two rebounds in just 15 minutes of play off the bench.

Harrison Barnes' Sacramento Kings debut

Result: Kings 102, Heat 96

Stat line: 12 points (3-9 FG, 2-4 3PT, 4-4 FT) - seven rebounds, two assists

Other players making debut in this game: Alec Burks (SAC), Ryan Anderson (MIA)

It wasn't the debut that Barnes was looking for I would assume, but the Kings still got the job done.

A huge fourth quarter comeback spoiled Dwyane Wade's final game in Sacramento and even though Barnes did not play a huge role in the win, he certainly has a huge role going forward for the Kings.

He started at forward and played 37 minutes in his debut and was on the floor during crunch time in the fourth.

Burks made the most of his playing time with nine points, four rebounds, an assist and a steal in 15 minutes of play. Anderson did not get any playing time for the Heat.
