According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Suns are still shopping Brandon Knight and Tyson Chandler.

Stein adds that the Suns have "struggled all week for traction on their guys," so a deal for Knight or Chandler isn't likely at the moment. Both players are signed to long-term contracts and not many teams are willing to give up draft picks right now. Chandler is a hold in standard leagues, while Knight belongs on the wire.

Ricky Rubio remains a "significant target" for the Knicks on Thursday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Woj added late on Wednesday night that at least a couple teams received a call from Minnesota about Ricky Rubio, so the Knicks could be one of them. Woj also added that the Derrick Rose rumors have lost some steam with no teams really interested in him right now. Tyus Jones and Kris Dunn could be decent stashes for PG-needy owners in competitive leagues.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Doug McDermott is "in play" at the deadline.

From the sounds of things, every Bull appears to be available for the right price leading up to the deadline, but Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic are the most likely to be moved. This report is still in the rumor stage and McDermott hasn't been linked to any teams yet, but we'll keep a close eye on this.

If Jimmy Butler or Paul George become available, the Celtics are ready to bid on them, but general manager Danny Ainge sees the draft as "more than a consolation prize," according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.

This is pretty much what everyone is expecting anyway. The Celtics will be the top team to watch with their surplus of draft picks, a slew of young talent on their roster, guys like Guerschon Yabusele and Ante Zizic overseas, and of course their double-digit amount of draft picks in the next four drafts.

According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, the Suns are interested in Mindaugas Kuzminskas.

The rookie forward has been a nice surprise for the Knicks, so New York isn't going to just give him away -- he's on a reasonable contract valued at $2.95 million in 2017-18 and $3.68 million in 2018-19. The Suns are possibly going to deal P.J. Tucker at the deadline, so a potential move to the Suns for Kuzminskas could be good for his fantasy value. Nothing is imminent and there are better stashes at the moment.
Feb 23 - 9:20 AM

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have "shown no inclination" to include a first-round pick in a potential deal for Jahlil Okafor.

This goes to show how much value Okafor has around the league. We've heard reports that the Bulls are offering Nikola Mirotic for Okafor, but that's probably not going to cut it for Philly. Okafor will be one of the most popular names in the rumor mill today so this won't be the last thing you hear about him leading up to the deadline.
Feb 23 - 9:12 AM

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Taj Gibson has emerged as a trade target for the Thunder.

The 31-year-old PF is playing on a $8.95 million expiring contract, and with the Bulls considering a rebuild, his name has been in the rumor mill for a while. You would think that Gibson would get a short-term boost in OKC with Enes Kanter (arm) on the shelf, but the big man went through a non-contact practice on Wednesday and is said to be nearing a return. A trade would likely hurt Gibson's value, but Bobby Portis would instantly become relevant since coach Fred Hoiberg said that he is officially ahead of Nikola Mirotic on the depth chart.

The Heat have been shopping Wayne Ellington and Josh McRoberts as a package, according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical.

Mannix notes that the Heat "appear interested in moving contracts." Ellington has a non-guaranteed $6.3 million salary next season, while McRoberts has a $6.0 million player option. There are zero teams linked to this 'package', for good reason, and we're not reading much into it with the deadline less than 24 hours away.
