Hawks general manager Wes Wilcox said re-signing Paul Millsap this summer is "absolutely" a priority.
Adrian Wojnarowski added the Hawks are "very focused" on being buyers at the deadline. Millsap hasn't quite busted out following a monster 2015-16, but there is still time for him to reward those fantasy owners who took him early.
Omer Asik (illness) is doubtful to play against the Rockets on Thursday.
He's not in the rotation anyway. The Pelicans would love to shed Asik's contract.
Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical believes the Magic will be active at the deadline.
The Magic tried to be cool and go bigger while the rest of the NBA went smaller, but it clearly didn't work and they had to sell Serge Ibaka at a discount. Now, they have to hit the reset button and may look to sell off some players. Besides guys like Jeff Green and D.J. Augustin, we haven't seen too many rumored names on the block. Still, this team could make some surprising moves.
Marcus Thornton was traded to the Nets on Wednesday.
We've seen throw-in Marcus Thornton get some late run on his new team and that is possible for the Nets. Although, he's a buyout candidate with his expiring 2016-17 salary at $1.3 million. There's no need to add him unless you're extremely desperate in a very, very deep league.
The Nets acquired Andrew Nicholson in the Bojan Bogdanovic trade on Wednesday.
He might actually be getting some minutes. He has three years left on his deal, so this is not an expiring move and the Nets are actually taking on some long-term money. The Nets really like floor-spacing fours and Nicholson does take a lot of jumpers. Although, he's made just 29.5 percent on jumpers this year and they could certainly use the stretch provision if they don't like what they see. He's only worth a look in super deep leagues just because the Nets may unload more players.
The Wizards acquired Chris McCullough on Wednesday.
After an ACL tear in his last season in Syracuse, the Nets were able to get McCullough at 29 in the 2015 draft. He did show some promise late last season, but just was never really to get it going outside of his big D-League outings. He won't be in the rotation. The Nets will likely be looking to sign another young power forward on a 10-day deal at some point.
The Wizards will acquire Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough in a trade with the Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
The Nets will get back Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a lottery-protected 2017 first-round pick. The Wizards lost out on the Lou Williams sweepstakes, so they'll go after the next easy trade target out there. Bogdanovic's playing time was really trending up with 29.4 minutes per game in February, averaging 15.1 points, 5.3 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.7 treys. Obviously his value will be falling off a cliff in fantasy. Meanwhile, guys like Caris LeVert, Sean Kilpatrick, Joe Harris and Thornton should all be looking to pick up some of that playing time. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach, especially with Jeremy Lin likely to return.
An MRI revealed Miles Plumlee (calf) has a second degree strain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
The Hornets are razor thin at the five spot with Cody Zeller (quad) also doubtful, so this one really hurts. On the positive side, Frank Kaminsky has played very well at the center spot and looks to be locked in to big minutes, making him worth owning in standard leagues in the short term.
