Gustavo Ayon will play with the Magic this season according to reliable beat writer Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Sportando passed along a bunk report from an unknown source and looks like they'll have egg on their face this time. Ayon is the slight favorite to start over Nikola Vucevic at center for the Magic, and with the lack of depth in Orlando he is worth a look late in drafts, regardless.

The 76ers are sending Nerlens Noel to Dallas for Justin Anderson, Andrew Bogut and a first-round draft pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

And we're off. The 76ers have been trying to deal Jahlil Okafor at a steep discount, but they still can't get anything done. The Dallas pick is protected from 1-18 in the June draft, so it almost certainly won't be this season. The Mavs have liked Noel for a while and will try to get an extension done with him. He should be their center of the future in a slower pace. In Philly Richaun Holmes could be the backup behind Joel Embiid, assuming Okafor is traded.

The Celtics have improved their offer for Paul George, but still haven't met Indiana's asking price.

The Celtics are now willing to include their 2017 first-round pick (via Brooklyn) which will likely be a top-3 selection. It sounds like the two teams are in advanced discussions, but Indiana's asking price is understandably very high. We'll have an update shortly.

C.J. Watson (Achilles) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday.

The means Elfrid Payton is expected to start tonight with D.J. Augustin likely to back him up. Although, the Magic could be making a move with DJA's name popping up in rumors. Watson is 32 years old and could need some time to recover from this strained Achilles.

According to Royce Young of ESPN, the Thunder are interested in Doug McDermott.

In case you missed it, the Thunder are also interested in Taj Gibson. McDermott's price won't be low, as he's a career 39.8 percent shooter from beyond the arc and is still on his rookie-scale deal. If McDermott is moved to OKC, it's certainly possible that he could get a bump in value depending on the pieces involved. No deal is imminent right now.

Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today is hearing that Reggie Jackson likely won't go anywhere at the deadline.

The Pistons have a high asking price, yet Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported on Wednesday night that a lot of teams don't view Jackson as a starter. Unless the rumors ramp up, Ish Smith is losing some stash appeal with a Jackson trade looking unlikely. According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, the Pistons will continue to aggressively shop him and they are looking for a first-round pick, a young player or an expiring contract.

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.

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. For now, the Bulls are asking for a first-round pick in return for Gibson.
