The Kings have reportedly been "engaging" in trade talks regarding DeMarcus Cousins.

Feb 19 - 5:47 PM
P.J. Tucker - G/F - Suns

The Celtics have reportedly expressed "deep interest" in P.J. Tucker.

Tucker would add some solid depth to the Celtics, but his playing time would take a substantial hit in Boston, so Tucker owners should be hoping that he remains in Phoenix past the deadline. There have been more than a few trade rumors regarding Tucker, though, so him remaining with the Suns is far from a certainty.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst said dealing away Iman Shumpert could be a "type of trade" the Cavs may be interested in making this week.

To be very clear here, Windhorst and the radio host said "this is not a report" multiple times, so this is just an opinion from the plugged-in guy in Cleveland. Windhorst said a possible trade for Alec Burks and Shelvin Mack could make sense. The reasoning on this is Kyle Korver catching fire and also J.R. Smith coming back for the playoffs. Again, to be clear, this is just an opinion, but just keep that in mind if the Cavs are looking to make a 2-for-1 deal.

Suns GM Ryan McDonough believes that Tyler Ulis will "play more minutes" after the trade deadline.

The Suns are expected to be sellers at the deadline and Brandon Knight could be on the move, so Ulis' outlook is promising. It also helps that the Suns may manage Eric Bledsoe's minutes down the stretch, as coach Earl Watson has hinted that Bledsoe has struggled with fatigue at times this season. Ulis has been in and out of the rotation this season, but it sounds like the Suns want to give him a lot of burn moving forward and a Knight trade would be the first step. He's just a stash in deeper leagues while Bledsoe is healthy, but you might as well put him on your watch list.

Suns GM Ryan McDonough said Dragan Bender's (ankle) rehab is going well.

"We don’t want to put a hard date on it, but I do think at some point – whether that’s mid-to-late March or April – that he’ll come back and play," McDonough said. "The surgery went well. His rehab up to this point has gone well. He’s off crutches. I believe he’s out of a walking boot already so it’s been a very smooth process." The Suns are expected to be sellers at the deadline, but it doesn't sound like the rookie will return in time to help fantasy owners this season. He's a nice stash in dynasty but he belongs on the wire in all re-draft leagues.

Marcus Georges-Hunt's 10-day contract with the Heat has expired.

The Heat would have to waive a player in order to re-sign Georges-Hunt to another 10-day deal, as Josh Richardson (foot) is set to return after the All-Star break. He didn't even make an appearance for the Heat, so this won't have an impact on the rotation.

The Suns are shopping Tyson Chandler, Brandon Knight and P.J. Tucker prior to the deadline.

All three of these guys have been in the rumor mill all season, so the only takeaway here is that the Suns are still looking to accumulate draft picks and more young talent. There are a ton of centers on the market, so moving Chandler's contract won't be easy. It makes some sense to put Alex Len on your watch list if you need a big, while Chandler would more than likely lose value with a potential trade. Nothing is imminent by any means.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Wizards have some interest in Bojan Bogdanovic.

The Wizards are looking to upgrade their bench at the deadline and have also been linked to Lou Williams. The Nets are looking for draft picks to speed up their rebuild, and the Wizards "have shown an inclination" to give up a future first-round pick for the right deal. Bogdanovic would surely lose value on a team like the Wizards, but his absence could open the door for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Caris LeVert to have a larger role in Brooklyn's offense.
