Tristan Thompson scored a season-high 21 points with nine boards, five assists, one block and one steal in 40 minutes against the Celtics on Tuesday.

He set a career high with five assists and his 40 minutes were a season high. On the down side, three of his shots were blocked, which has been a major bugaboo for him in his two seasons as a pro. That said, Tristan is having a tremendous sophomore season and he should be in all lineups.

Deron Williams plans to join the Cavs, according to the Associated Press.

He still has to clear waivers, but just there are a ton of reports saying the Cavs will be signing the former All-Star. Williams played on Team USA with LeBron James, so those two are familiar playing next to each other despite not playing on the same NBA team. He will back up Kyrie Irving and could also see some minutes in two-PG lineups. Obviously his fantasy value takes a major hit.

Pelicans waive F Terrence Jones.

With the addition of DeMarcus Cousins, there just isn't going to be minutes for Jones in New Orleans. He should certainly receive some interest in the free agent market and some of the bad teams could claim him to give him minutes. Chances are his fantasy value drops on a new team, but he could still be worth stashing in deeper leagues to see where he winds up.

Terrence Ross and Aaron Gordon will start at the forward spots against the Blazers on Thursday.

The Magic will have their new acquisition in the starting lineup for the first time. This offense doesn't have much perimeter scoring and Ross has actually been really good in isolation, so he may be busy to help out the points output. His upside in fantasy isn't the greatest due to how he's basically just good for scoring, but feel free to pick him up to see what happens.

Mavs waive G Deron Williams.

The Mavs do right by their point guard to allow him to join a contender. The Cavs look to be the heavy favorite to land the former All-Star guard and have him back up Kyrie Irving. When he was on the court, Williams was having a solid season, averaging 13.1 points, 6.9 assists and 1.6 treys in 29.3 minutes per game. His fantasy value will be dropping in a big way while Yogi Ferrell gets the keys to the offense going forward.

Nets waive G Marcus Thornton.

The Nets picked him up on Wednesday night in the Bojan Bogdanovic, but the addition of K.J. McDaniels likely sealed Thornton may get some interest in the buyout market, but he's pretty low in the pecking order.

Jahlil Okafor wasn't traded on Thursday and he'll remain in Philly past the deadline.

Well, that's awkward. The Sixers dealt Nerlens Noel to Dallas but couldn't find a suitable offer for Okafor, who was one of the most glaring trade candidates this season -- Philly went so far as to sideline while conducting trade talks in recent weeks. Okafor has some fantasy appeal with Joel Embiid (knee) expected to miss at least four games, but Embiid's eventual return looms over Okafor's rest-of-season outlook.

Deron Williams is "possibly" receiving a buyout from the Mavs, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

According to The Vertical, the Cavs, Hawks and Jazz are expected to be interested -- David Aldridge adds that in the event of Williams being waived, "all signs point" to the Cavs acquiring him. Williams is not expected to ask for a buyout, but the team is expected to do it in order to get a look at rookie Yogi Ferrell. A lot of teams cleared out some salary to help them go after a guy like Deron, who almost certainly will be a backup wherever he goes. Ferrell should be owned in standard leagues.

The Suns are trading P.J. Tucker to the Raptors in exchange for Jared Sullinger and two second-round picks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The Raptors get their guy at the deadline buzzer and it didn't cost them any first-round picks, so this is a terrific pickup for general manager Masai Ujiri. There was some talk that the Raptors wanted Tucker to help guard LeBron James in the playoffs. He figures to take a few minutes away from Norman Powell and DeMarre Carroll on his new team. Also with Tucker gone, T.J. Warren should be looking at big minutes, assuming he can avoid too many defensive hiccups.

Atlanta has traded Mike Scott to the Suns for cash, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The Hawks don't need Scott anymore with Ersan Ilysasova around. The Suns are under the salary cap, so it's basically just a salary dump here. He is not expected to take minutes away from a heating-up Marquese Chriss.
Feb 23 - 2:58 PM

Tyler Ennis has been traded to the Lakers for Marcelo Huertas, according to The Vertical.

The Rockets continue to shed some money to now get them under the cap. Ennis could get minutes once guys like Jose Calderon are bought out, but frankly he hasn't been very good.
Feb 23 - 2:54 PM

The Pacers have passed on trade offers for Paul George, and he will remain in Indiana after the trade deadline.
