Glenn Robinson III won the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday night.

After one of the best Slam Dunk Contests ever last year, this one was a little disappointing. There were a lot of missed dunks and Aaron Gordon just didn't have the bounce that he had last year. Derrick Jones Jr. arguably had the best two dunks on the night, but misses in the final cost him. When he returns to action next week, Robinson III could lose his starting job due to the Pacers looking to deal their first-round pick for some help.

Eric Gordon won the 3-Point Contest on Saturday night.

He tied Kyrie Irving in the final, but dominated in the overtime frame to pass Irving even before the final rack. Gordon actually hasn't shot the ball as well as earlier this year. In fact, he shot 44.1 percent from the field in December, 40.1 percent from there in January, and is at just 37.5 percent this month. Some of this could be due to his injury, so hopefully the time off gets him going again.

Kristaps Porzingis won the Skills Challenge on Saturday night.

He is the first Knick to win the Skills Challenge and is the second big in a row to win it with Karl-Anthony Towns taking it home last year. Porzingis was also effective with 24 points in the World's victory in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night, so he had a solid weekend on the court. You could make an argument he should've made the All-Star team over Carmelo Anthony, too. After dealing with an Achilles issue for three different stints last month, he's back up to 31.1 minutes per game in February.

The Celtics will "keep an eye on" Danilo Gallinari (groin) as a possible trade target, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.

The Celtics are reportedly making their picks available for the right deal, including the potential No. 1 lottery spot with Brooklyn's pick. That pick likely isn't going to be in play for Gallinari, but young talent or future firsts could be in play on this deal. Gallo would take a big hit in big hit in Boston while Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez could benefit.

The Pistons have "continued to gauge the market" for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

In case you missed it on Friday, the Pistons have reportedly talked to the Magic about a Jackson for D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green deal. Plus, last month there was a Jackson for Ricky Rubio report, and also ESPN's Zach Lowe said the Pelicans had exploratory interest in Jackson. Ish Smith isn't the greatest stash in fantasy, but he has some appeal for owners needing a point guard.

Kevin Durant wouldn't comment about possibly taking less money this summer to help fit others into the salary cap.

"We'll figure that out when the time comes," Durant said. He has a max $27.7 million cap number on his player option for next year, so that's a big chunk of the raised cap for the 2017-18 season. Durant is having his most efficient season as a pro and looks to be enjoying his time in the Bay Area so far.

The 76ers pulled Jahlil Okafor from their lineup last week because a deal with Portland was close to happening, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

The Blazers lost interest in this deal because they went with Denver's offer for Jusuf Nurkic and a first-round pick for Mason Plumlee. The Blazers were reportedly interested in Okafor before this, but it's interesting to hear that may have been the main reason why Okafor was out of the lineup. The second-year big man may be the most likely to be traded before Thursday.

Anthony Davis called Russell Westbrook one of his closest friends in the league.

The two share the same agent and are frequently asked questions about teaming up down the line. In fact, Westbrook was asked about joining Davis this weekend, but he answered with a question about fashion. Davis will be starting for his home team on Sunday night.
