Marcus Thornton, who recently rejoined the Kings' rotation, finished Sunday's loss with 21 points on 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs off the bench.

He knocked down 5-of-8 three-pointers in just under 30 minutes of action, his highest playing time since falling out of the rotation in mid-November. Thornton is explosive enough to have sporadic value in a bench role, but it will likely take a trade for him to be steady enough for use in 12-team leagues. His hot hand limited starting SG Ben McLemore to just four points in 18 minutes.

The Blazers' recent offer for Paul George "doesn't move the needle" for the Pacers, according to Jason Quick of CSNNW.

This isn't too surprising because the Pacers are looking for a high pick. While the Blazers do have three first-round picks, their earliest pick is only at 15. If you exclude C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard, there just isn't enough to entice the Pacers to match some of the other offers from the teams with lottery picks.

LaMarcus Aldridge's unhappiness in San Antonio is "the driving force" behind the Spurs’ trade talks on Thursday, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

The report adds Aldridge is "hopeful that San Antonio can find a better fit for his talents." The Spurs are reportedly looking for a top-10 pick in return, but they're probably not going to get it with how deep this class is. Plus, the teams in the top 10 really don't make much sense as a fit right now. After a bad postseason, the Spurs may be willing to drop the price on the former All-Star.

The Wolves continue to show interest in landing Paul George or Jimmy Butler, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

While the world shifts its focus to Kristaps Porzingis, don't forget about these two All-Star wings. The Wolves seem like they're very willing to deal their No. 7 pick for a wing of some kind. George is by far the most likely All-Star to be traded and there is a picture floating around on the web of a moving van in front of his house.

Multiple NBA teams said Harry Giles' medical info was more favorable than they anticipated, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.

This is good news for a player with perhaps more injury red flags than any other prospect. Giles has torn both his ACLs in his playing career and he also hurt his knee again last year at Duke. There is some talk of him going in the top 10 for his upside, so this news may help him go in the lottery.

The Celtics offered the Knicks their No. 3 pick, a player and an additional lottery pick for Kristaps Porzingis, according to Ian Begley of ESPN NY.

This isn't too far off from what the NY Daily News said the Knicks are asking for: No. 3, the Nets pick next year, Jae Crowder and Jaylen Brown. Considering the Knicks are rebuilding, it makes very little sense for them to acquire the bargain contract of Crowder, unless they're going to trade that away in a future deal. Porzingis has clearly become the hot target for teams and has passed Jimmy Butler. The Celtics appear to be closest on making a deal. Stay tuned.

Ricky Rubio is an active name in Minnesota's trade discussions, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Rubio's name has been in the rumor mill for years, but he's had one foot out the door ever since the Wolves drafted Kris Dunn. He's coming off a strong season with averages of 11.1 points, 9.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 0.8 3-pointers, and with just two years and $29 million left on his deal, he should draw plenty of interest. The Wolves have been in talks with the Bulls about Jimmy Butler, but it's not clear if they would take Rubio if their plan is to rebuild.

The Jazz are receiving "a lot of interest" on Derrick Favors, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.

This report adds that Utah isn't looking to deal Favors, but he isn't off limits. Favors had a terrible year in 2016-17 due to lingering knee issues, playing in just 50 games and starting just 39. He even tweeted he was playing on one leg, which caused the drop in minutes and productivity. If Favors can recover from this knee issue, the 25-year-old big man could have a bounce-back season.

Several teams, including the Boston Celtics, have engaged the Knicks about a possible Kristaps Porzingis trade according to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical.

Woj adds that no one has been willing to meet the Knicks demands so far, but expect the talks to heat up as we approach the draft. In case you missed it, the Knicks are said to be asking for two starters and a top four pick in return, presumably to select Kansas' Josh Jackson. The Celtics (No. 3) and Suns (No. 4) are likely the favorites to land Porzingis if the Knicks pull the trigger on a trade, as it sounds like the 76ers (No. 1) are more than comfortable with Markelle Fultz and the Lakers (No. 2) are expected to take Lonzo Ball.

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Michael C. Wright, the Spurs are still shopping LaMarcus Aldridge.

Suns radio host John Gambadoro said on Wednesday that the Spurs were looking for a top-5 pick in return, but this report says they would move Aldridge for a top-10 pick. The Spurs have spoken to at least three teams so far, but no deal is imminent yet. Aldridge was a letdown in the postseason and is slated to make $21.4 million next season with a player option for 2018-19, so getting his contract off the books would give the Spurs a ton of flexibility to make some noise in free agency.

The NBA's projected salary cap for the 2017-18 season has been revised downward from $102 million to roughly $99 million.

The luxury tax threshold is also likely to be lowered from $121 million to $119 million. This is reportedly a result of lower-than-expected playoff revenues, and it could make it harder for some teams to clear space to pursue elite free agents. This may not have a glaring impact on strategies at the trade deadline, but it could throw a wrench into some offseason plans.

Phil Jackson was noncommittal about Kristaps Porzingis during an exclusive MSG interview on Wednesday, saying, "As much as we love this guy, we have to do what's best for the club."

"I don't think I've ever had a player over 25 years, maybe 30 ... not coming to a exit meeting," Jackson said. That was a reference to Porzingis' decision to skip his exit interview with the Knicks, reportedly because he was upset about the team's treatment of Carmelo Anthony. "We're getting calls [from other teams]," Jackson added. "We're listening, but we're not intrigued yet at this level." The Knicks are reportedly seeking a top-four pick along with young talent for Porzingis, and it's a fascinating situation to watch with the draft less than 24 hours away.
