Wolves coach Sam Mitchell said that Karl-Anthony Towns' 3-point shot keeps defenders honest.

"The fact he can step out and shoot one or two a game is great," Mitchell said. "It keeps his guy honest. It adds another dimension, another weapon. It keeps space and flow and timing. But Karl can do too many things to say I want him to stand out there and shoot 10 threes a game." The rookie is shooting 37.5 percent from deep this season and just won the 2016 Skills Challenge on Saturday. His game is incredibly versatile for such a young player and his potential in fantasy is incredible.

An unidentified team is reportedly "kicking the tires" on Andre Miller.

Even if Miller were to be moved, he likely wouldn't be anything more than bench insurance for his new team. His days of fantasy relevance are long gone.

With the trade deadline approaching, David Lee continues to draw very little interest around the league.

Teams are just not willing to take on Lee's bloated contract. Out of the rotation in Boston, it's possible he will just be bought out. Even then, Lee would have minimal fantasy value elsewhere.

According to Tom Moore of The Intelligencer, neither Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel are expected to be moved by the trading deadline.

Moore cites the ongoing question marks surrounding Joel Embiid (foot) and the Sixers hesitance to take on salary as reasons why a deal is unlikely. Philadelphia may re-visit this in the summer, as some have questioned whether a Okafor-Noel pairing will ever work, but for now it looks as though both players will be staying put.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Amid trade speculation, Al Horford expressed his love for the city of Atlanta on Saturday.

"I’m very happy in Atlanta," Horford said. "I’ve said it repeatedly. I love the city. My family, we all live in Atlanta, we stay there in the offseason, so my focus is just to keep playing and taking it day by day and, right now, it’s to enjoy this weekend." The latest report has the Celtics linked to Horford, but a deal still seems unlikely even though he could walk away from the Hawks as a free agent this summer.

Nuggets coach Mike Malone recently heaped praise upon rookie Nikola Jokic, citing his work ethic and improved conditioning.

"What do you do with the opportunity given to you?" Malone said. "We had injuries, we had guys banged up. He kept on working and every time he was given an opportunity, he took full advantage of it. I think it speaks to his work ethic, his desire to be a great player." Jokic has shed 30 pounds since arriving in Denver, and despite his recent struggles, we still like his fantasy outlook the rest of the way. The 20-year-old's future is very bright.

According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, the Heat are "at least gauging" what the trade market would be for Hassan Whiteside.

Whiteside is on an expiring contract and the Heat have been frustrated with him at times due to his immaturity, so it makes sense for them to at least entertain the idea of a trade. Nothing is imminent by any means, but Whiteside's fantasy value would likely be safe no matter what Jersey he was wearing. In case you missed it, he is suspended for Friday's game vs. the Hawks for elbowing Boban Marjanovic in the Heat's last game.

Carmelo Anthony brushed off recent trade rumors on Saturday and expressed his desire to stay with the Knicks.

"I don't want to run," Anthony said. "I could have ran somewhere when I was a free agent. I came back for a reason. I don’t feel like I got to keep expressing that part of why I came back to New York." Melo has a no-trade clause, but doesn't sound interested in waiving it, even if it means joining a contender.

Rajon Rondo said that he still feels like an elite point guard.

"I don't think I was playing bad last season," Rondo said. "I’m playing a lot better this year just because probably the coaching staff, our style of play is very open court. I get out in transition and I make a lot of the plays. Coach has allowed me to do what I do best." Rondo is averaging 11.9 assists per game this season, which would set a career high, and his value should be safe despite the uncertainty in Sacramento at the moment.

According to the Boston Globe, J.J. Hickson is still expected to be moved before the trade deadline.

Hickson is on an expiring deal and has fallen out of the rotation in Denver, but this report isn't a surprise because he has been on the trade block for a while now. The big man should draw some interest because he's a capable rebounder, but the Nuggets won't get a lot in return for him. He's a poor free throw shooter and would likely just be a role player if he was moved, so he's not a great stash.

Zach LaVine edged out Aaron Gordon in a thrilling 2016 Slam Dunk Contest.

It was one of the best dunk contests in years and LaVine put to rest the "LaVine is only good at through-the-legs dunk" talk. The two dunkers had to go to OT to decide it, which resulted in awesome dunks each time. Gordon had arguably two of the best dunks of the night and his creativity topped LaVine, too. Of course, LaVine didn't disappoint. Go check out all of Gordon's and LaVine's dunks ASAP.

Klay Thompson won the 2016 3-Point Shootout on Saturday.

He was on fire in the championship round with a perfect money ball rack to get to 27 points. Stephen Curry and Devin Booker also made it to the championship round with Curry's 23 coming in second. Thompson and Curry are basically locks to be first and second in 3-pointers on the season.

Karl-Anthony Towns won the 2016 Skills Challenge on Saturday.

What can't this guy do? Towns has already become one of the best mid-range scorers as a young big, he is phenomenal at protecting the rim and he can score off the dribble. He's 20 and he's already being strongly considered as a top-five asset in Dynasty leagues.

LeBron James said the three-team trade rumors involving Carmelo Anthony to Cleveland and Kevin Love to Boston are "false."

Melo did say he's hoping to play with a star, but he also shot down trade rumors, as well. He has a no-trade clause and that could be a huge hurdle for the Knicks if they want to rebuild around Kristaps Porzingis.

The Pacers still have interest in Jeff Teague.

The Hawks are not actively shopping Teague and they probably shouldn't either. They're playing their best ball right now before the break and a lot of it has to do with Teague playing well. For now, expect Teague to stay with the Hawks through the season.
