Some in the Clippers organization reportedly believe that Carmelo Anthony may be willing to waive his no-trade clause during the offseason.

Anthony doesn't seem very likely to waive the no-trade clause this year, but doing so during the offseason, when he'd have plenty of time to move his family to their new destination does seem like a possibility. Melo also reportedly doesn't want to give Phil Jackson the satisfaction of having run him out of town, so there are no guarantees that he'll ever waive that no-trade clause.

Phil Jackson is reportedly a fan of Ricky Rubio.

According to David Aldridge, Tom Thibodeau is "not really enamored" with Ricky Rubio right now, and he feels Derrick Rose would be an "upgrade" at the point guard position, which is a pretty fascinating take. A straight up Rose-Rubio swap would work under the cap guidelines, and with Thibs reportedly making a strong push for Rose, this is certainly a deal we could see go down on deadline day.

Teams around the league have reportedly been re-engaging with the 76ers on a Nerlens Noel trade.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that if the 76ers are unable to find a trade partner for Jahlil Okafor they will shift their focus to sending away Noel, but the biggest stumbling block here for a Noel deal is that he's about to be a restricted free agent. Teams reportedly want to know what it will cost to retain Noel as a free agent, and with Woj reporting that Noel is seeking a "big number," that may be enough to scare some teams away who don't have the cap room to re-sign him this offseason.

Larry Sanders is scheduled to workout for the Cavs on Wednesday.

Sanders is attempting an NBA comeback, and he's already had workouts with the Lakers, Miami and a handful of other teams. So far, those workouts have not resulted in a contract, and Sanders has reportedly looked a bit out of shape which is understandable considering he's been out of the league for two years now. Even If Sanders is able to snag a deal for the minimum, it's unlikely he'll have much, if any, fantasy value this season.

The Celtics are reportedly still interested in Jahlil Okafor.

The Celtics still view Jimmy Butler and Paul George as their primary targets for any deadline day deal, but if Boston can't pull off a major move, they may turn their eyes towards Okafor. David Aldridge boldly stated during an appearance on NBA TV on Tuesday night that Okafor "will get moved" by the deadline and that Philly has "a lot of offers" on the table. He's also been linked to the Pacers and Kings, and the Kings would be the best landing spot in terms of fantasy hoops.

Kings coach Dave Joerger said Ben McLemore could play some small-ball four moving forward.

He's not kidding either. The Kings have way too many shooting guards on the roster, so the big takeaway here is that it sounds like McLemore will still get a decent amount of minutes despite the arrival of Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway and Tyreke Evans. With that said, the Kings are also shopping McLemore and he could very easily be moved before Thursday's deadline.

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

In case you missed it, Afflalo left Wednesday's game early with right glute/hamstring stiffness, but he's had nearly a week off to get healthy. Afflalo could be moved at the deadline because his contract isn't guaranteed for the 2017-18 season, but he's not worth stashing in most formats.
Feb 21 - 9:40 PM

Ty Lawson (groin) was able to practice on Tuesday.

He's 100 percent and will be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Nuggets after a four-game absence. Darren Collison could be moved prior to the deadline, so be ready to give Lawson a look if the Kings find a trade partner. Lawson is just a stash for now.
