Nikola Vucevic returned from an ankle injury and hit 7-of-14 shots for 15 points, five rebounds, zero steals and zero blocks on Tuesday.

The good news is that he played through the injury after missing Sunday's practice. Kyle O'Quinn started at power forward and had 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes, while Moe Harkless made another start at small forward and had 12 points and two steals in 29 minutes.

The Pelicans are now expected to waive Terrence Jones, according to Justin Verrier of ESPN.com.

He wasn't on the practice floor today and the Pelicans likely wanted to unload him for cheap on a deal. Jones will be one of many players teams will go after in the free agent market following the deadline. He is likely going to see a smaller role than what he had in the first half, so he may not be worth owning in standard leagues going forward.

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

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.

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.

Feb 23 - 2:49 PM

Doug McDermott has been traded to the Thunder.

It sounds like Andre Roberson will remain in OKC, so that hurts McDermott's outlook a bit -- the Thunder are sending Cameron Payne, Anthony Morrow and Joffrey Lauvergne for McDermott and Taj Gibson. The Thunder clearly value McDermott and he should get a slight boost in OKC, so he's worth a look if you need a 3-point specialist. He averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.3 steals in 24.5 minutes per game for the Bulls.

K.J. McDaniels has been traded to the Brooklyn Nets.

This was a straight salary dump for Houston, while the Nets are acquiring an intriguing young swingman who can hit 3-pointers and block shots. This is a great landing spot for McDaniels and he should be able to crack the rotation with Bojan Bogdanovic out of the picture, but he will likely come off the bench behind Caris LeVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson on the wings. Just keep an eye on him.

Coach Doc Rivers said Chris Paul (thumb) is "out most likely" for Thursday against the Warriors.

He is technically listed as out in the game notes, but there is a chance he will play. The Clippers start their second half on a back-to-back set, so he may have a chance to play against the Spurs. For tonight, Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton will handle the ball more while a lot of action will go through Blake Griffin.
Feb 23 - 2:21 PM

According to Frank Isola of the NY Daily News, the Thunder are nearing a deal to acquire Doug McDermott.

The proposed deal would likely include Andre Roberson and Cameron Payne from the Thunder, so McDermott could potentially be the starting small forward in OKC. If you have a roster spot and need 3-pointers, McDermott is now firmly on the radar as a pickup. He's averaging 1.3 triples in 24.5 minutes per game for the Bulls.
Feb 23 - 2:10 PM

Enes Kanter says his arm feels "pretty good" and when asked if he might play on Friday night, he said "it's a secret."

If Kanter really is in play for tomorrow night against the Lakers it means he recovered very quickly from his broken arm and returned a bit ahead of schedule. While feeling "pretty good" is a step in the right direction, we still don't know if Kanter has a realistic shot at playing on Friday. But it sure seems like a possibility. Watch for more updates on his status coming Friday afternoon.
