Kendrick Perkins said he's working harder this offseason on his shot and explosiveness.

"I've been working, man," Perkins said. "Been in the gym and basically just working more in the weight room on my explosiveness and touch around the basket, hook shots and stuff like that. I've been shooting a lot of jumpers, making sure I make 300 a night. I'm just trying to prepare." He added that he was back on the court just two weeks after his knee scope on July 9, so he'll have most of the offseason to get it going. Last year was a disaster for Perkins. Among players seeing at least 25 minutes per night, he ranked dead last in the NBA in player efficiency rating while shooting a career-low 45.7 percent. Obviously, he'll need a bit of a miracle to get back in our good graces for fantasy.

The Celtics have held preliminary talks with the Pacers about Paul George.

To be clear, the talks have stalled and won't go anywhere unless the Celtics include their 2017 first-round pick (via Brooklyn). George can hit the open market in 2018 and he does have a lot of reported interest in joining his hometown Lakers, so acquiring him would be a risk for Boston without some type of commitment.

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.

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.

Thon Maker will continue to start at center for the Bucks, according to coach Jason Kidd.

Milwaukee seems to be fully embracing the stretch-five idea after struggling to develop an effective center rotation with John Henson, Greg Monroe, and the recently-traded Miles Plumlee. In seven starts this season, Maker is averaging 7.3 points, 1.3 triples, 3.7 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks.
