The Warriors have recalled Brainte Weber from the D-League.
Weber's second 10-day contract will expire on Friday, so if the Dubs want to bring him on long-term, they'll have to make that decision soon. Weber has zero fantasy value in Golden State.
The Pistons will reportedly not discourage other teams from inquiring about Andre Drummond at the trade deadline.
Most of the trade news that has come out of Detroit has indicated Reggie Jackson as one of the more likely players to go, but there have been whispers that Stan Van Gundy would be willing to part ways with Drummond should the right deal come along. Drummond should be a double-double machine regardless of his jersey, but if he's sent away, we could see Jon Leuer's minutes consistently in the high-30s while Aron Baynes would see an uptick in minutes as well. Stay tuned.
The Suns have reportedly received inquiries regarding the availability of P.J. Tucker from the Raptors, Celtics, Wizards, Clippers, Hawks and Jazz.
Tucker is very likely to be moved at the deadline, and in terms of fantasy value, Los Angeles and Atlanta look like the best potential destinations as he would assuredly lose value with any of the other aforementioned teams. T.J. Warren could see a nice boost in value if the Suns don't bring back another wing, so he's someone to consider stashing away ahead of the trade deadline.
The Heat announced on Tuesday that they have recalled Okaro White from their D-League affiliate.
The Heat sent White down this past weekend so he could participate in the D-League All-Star Game. White has minimal fantasy value. He has appeared in 14 games for Miami this season and is averaging 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.2 minutes. He can be left on waiver wires.
The Lakers have named Earvin "Magic" Johnson President of Basketball Operations.
The team also announced that GM Mitch Kupchak has been relieved of his duties and that Jim Buss will no longer hold his role as Lakers Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations. It's obviously a major shakeup within the Lakers organization. The press release quotes Jeanie Buss as declaring: "Our search for a new General Manager to work with Earvin and Coach Luke Walton is well underway and we hope to announce a new General Manager in short order."
The Nets have lowered their asking price on Brook Lopez and are now willing to accept a first and second-round pick, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
The Nets were initially demanding two first-round picks in exchange for their best player. However, after seeing how little the Kings got in return for DeMarcus Cousins, it appears they have been forced to re-access Lopez's market value. If Lopez were to get traded, his usage rate would likely decline, as he is the focal point of the Nets offense, but a new team would likely play him more than Brooklyn does. Ultimately, we would have to wait and see where he might end up before attempting to predicting his future fantasy value.
Indiana is pursuing Jahlil Okafor prior to Thursday's trade deadline, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.
At this point, it seems as though more than half the league has been attached to a Jahlil Okafor rumor. Chris Hayes of ESPN had previously reported that the Pacers would be willing to trade their 2017 first-round pick in the right deal if it meant improving its roster, which would ultimately increase their chances of re-signing Paul George. However, a pick in the mid-teens seems like an awfully small return for Sixers to accept for Okafor, who was selected with the third overall pick in the 2015 draft.
The Mavs and Celtics are expected to discuss a deal that would send Andrew Bogut to Boston in exchange for one of the Celtics first-round picks, according to Mike Fisher of Scout.com.
This rumor has not been confirmed by any other national outlets, so it's unknown how accurate it is. The report states that such a trade is dependant on Boston first making another, larger move. The deal with Dallas would purportedly center around Bogut and his expiring contract in exchange for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's less valuable future first-round picks.
