As you probably already know, Anthony Davis is not a Laker (yet?). Mike Conley is shockingly still in Memphis. We didn’t see Beal or Kemba or Vucevic leave town. What we did see was still madness though, and Mike Fanelli and I have decided to break it down for you, trade by trade. This is the first part of a four-part series where we’ll go over each of the 22 trades made this week, providing commentary and our own personal grades for each team’s involvement in each move. Hope you enjoy! – Josh Continue reading

The NBA trade deadline is vastly approaching on Thursday so teams are scrambling to trade some of their players for good value. Kristaps Porzingis has been frustrated with the New York Knicks since last season as he decided not to attend the exit interview over a dispute with now-former head coach Jeff Hornacek about the team’s direction, and those concerns about the team seemed to resurface in a meeting with management yesterday.

After a drama-filled week for the Dallas Mavericks‘ fans, Dennis Smith Jr. checked back in for the first time in five games last night against the Clippers. As few had predicited, DSJ didnt miss a beat in his return, going for 17 PTS, 8 REB, and 4 AST. Although reports have suggested tenison has been high in the locker room, Smith Jr. showed no evidence to validate those beliefs, orchestrating the Dallas offense with regularity. Head coach Rick Carlisle had high praise for the 21-year-old upon his return: ”I thought he was great, just really tremendous, and everything we needed: speed, attacking, shot-making, a couple of amazing assists,” Carlisle said. ”It has been tough for him, being away from his teammates, and he played one of his best games since he has been here.”

Yesterday, our resident Heatle Jacari McRae brought to your attention seven players to watch as the trade deadline approaches (it’s just three weeks away! Can you believe it?).
Today we’ll examine some potential places those seven players might end up, and why some of the more popular predictions for them might not be the best situation after all.

As February’s NBA trade deadline nears, fans are already speculating about where players will end up. With half the season gone, these potential moves could make or break a team’s chance in the NBA playoffs or provide salary cap relief for future flexibility. That said, I’ve compiled a small list of players who could be on the move soon.

Do you remember where were you on June 21, 2018? I do. I was pinned somewhere between delirium and hilarity after hearing the Dallas Mavericks just selected Trae Young 5th overall in the NBA Draft. Initially, I questioned everything: Why would The Mavs take first round Point Guards in back-to-back drafts? Why would we waste such a valuable pick? Why am I a Dallas Mavericks fan?
