  • Sources: Grizzlies Want Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard from Pistons for Mike Conley

    I still don't see a pathway for #Pistons to get any further in talks for Mike Conley.

    Reports are that the #Grizzlies are looking for Reggie Jackson and Kennard/1st-round pick, PLUS another pick. #Pistons aren't going to give all that up for a bigger risk in Conley.

  • Sources: Pelicans, Lakers Anthony Davis Talks ‘dormant’

    Nearly 3 hours away from the NBA's trade deadline and ... the Lakers-Pelicans talks on Anthony Davis are dormant, league sources tell ESPN. No communication, nor an expectation that they'll even speak today. Pelicans seem content to run out the clock.

  • Sources: Toronto, Houston, Milwaukee Interested In Wesley Matthews If Bought Out

    The Knicks are hoping to bring in an asset for guard Wes Matthews before Thursday’s deadline, but the expectation remains that he’ll be bought out. Toronto, seeking to bolster its bench and holding open a roster spot, is among the favorites to sign Matthews. The Rockets are also expected to make a pitch.

    Not among the prospective suitors: the Bucks, Matthews’ hometown team. Milwaukee is hoping to boost its frontcourt in the coming weeks, either on Thursday or through a waiver signing.

  • Sources: Blazers Not Done Dealing, Expected To Make Moe Harkless Available

    The Blazers may not yet be done, either, league sources told Sporting News. Even with Hood in the fold, they’ve continued to attempt to find ways to bring in another difference-maker to bolster their playoff prospects.

    Portland is expected to make Harkless available, according to sources, as well as the team’s first-round pick. Harkless has another year on his contract, at $11.5 million, which would scare off teams looking to protect cap space next summer. (The Knicks and Nets, for example, have had interest in Harkless in the past.)

    The Blazers also could dump Harkless as a way to reduce their luxury-tax bill, but the team already has a roster spot open and is intent on maximizing this current group, which could break up after this year when players like Evan Turner, Meyers Leonard and Harkless head into the final years of their contracts.

    Portland has expressed interest in Pelicans big man Nikola Mirotic, among other available players — Evan Fournier of the Magic, Jeremy Lin of the Hawks, JaMychal Green of the Grizzlies — sources told Sporting News.

  • Sources: Knicks Market, Free Agent Prospects ‘resonated’ with Anthony Davis

    The Knicks have won only one playoff series over the past 18 seasons and their public image has suffered under the ownership of James L. Dolan. But the lure of playing in one of the league’s most attractive markets along with the way the Knicks have positioned themselves to pursue marquee free agents after trading away their franchise player, Kristaps Porzingis, have resonated with Davis, according to the people.

  • Sources: Cavs Still Looking To Find Trade Partner For JR Smith

    Even after agreeing to their fourth trade this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed busy on deadline eve, looking to find a new home for exiled swingman JR Smith, and the front office will continue with that goal up until 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon, league sources told

    Smith, who hasn't played organized basketball since Nov. 19, 2018 and was recently spotted at Madison Square Garden as a fan, doesn't have nearly as much value as some of the other pieces the Cavs have moved recently. Finding a trade partner is "easier said than done," according to one source.

  • Sources: Hornets Looking to Trade Frank Kaminsky

    The Hornets, independent of any potential Marc Gasol deals, are still looking for a landing spot for Frank Kaminsky, a source tells SN. Kaminsky has been patient through the process, but has played only 41 minutes in Charlotte's last 23 games.
