@TheSteinLine: The Carmelo Anthony trade call, I'm told, has yet to take place today because the deal sending Anthony to Chicago might have to be amended over a discrepancy involving the rights to an international player

@TheSteinLine: The trade sending Anthony from Houston to Chicago is still expected to go through today, but issues that have arisen over the proposed trade construction illustrate why the league would not execute the trade Monday without the Rockets submitting the required advance notice

@wojespn: For first time, Memphis will begin listening to trade offers on franchise stars Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, league sources tell ESPN. Memphis has reached a crossroads and is preparing to weigh deals involving one or both of its cornerstone veterans. Story soon on ESPN.

Olidipo goes down and leaves on a stretcher. Pacers fear its season ending.

I'm at a point where I at least can watch Harden and appreciate how he exploits the current league rules and system to get his amount of points. This is why it's so hard to compare eras and all-time greats. Harden works right about now, wouldn't ten years ago and maybe won't ten years from now.

He's like that clever company that plays the system to never pay taxes despite making a buttload of money and the government is looking the other way. In some ways, that's just being smarter than the rest. But it's also disgusting.

I agree - and he has 2 years left after this one that pays him $21m each season. I guess insurance picks up that tab but it still counts against their cap.

They will but it won't mean anything. Their team is just absolutely insane. There is just no point in trying to make a run for a championship while this team remains together. They could lose KD or Curry to a season injury and still easily win it all. Heck, it's arguable they could win it even with both of those injured.

Harden: Can't win. Might as well pad my stats.

Y'all have to watch the last minute of the Raptors-Rockets game. Rockets with some extremely bonehead plays and defense/rebounding and almost/should have lost.

I hate Harden's game. Poor shooting and still 35 points given 15 free throws...

I'm old enough to remember when they started the season at 12-5... They're 19-30 now.

NBA ratings down across the board. Glad that no competitive balance between top, bottom, east, and west has backfired so quickly. Still hope that there will be new rule named after Durant! That's how he should be remembered...

A rule against what? Joining the former champs after they bounced you from the playoffs despite being up 3-1?

Yes. There are tiered salary structures that could prevent these dumb moves or at least force Durant type of cowards to lose a buttload of money for their Nazgul wet dreams.

So do we hire the Suns coach (not as head coach - only as bench coach) since he knows Luka so well???

In his defense he took a max contract to join the best team in the league. The blame is is in the plsyers association for the new agreement. The owners warned them.

But I still canít stand him all the same.

That's what I don't get btw. In a tiered salary system, the middle class would likely benefit as well because it wouldn't be so top-heavy. And that's most of the players the union represents.

@espn_macmahon: James Harden had a pair of assisted buckets vs. Magic, both on feeds from Kenneth Faried. Per @ESPNStatsInfo, Harden had 87 FGs and scored 302 points since his last assisted bucket.

Agent Rich Paul has notified the New Orleans Pelicans that All-NBA forward Anthony Davis has no intention of signing a contract extension if and when presented and that he has requested a trade, Paul told ESPN on Monday.
Good morning everyone!

Honestly, I hate the state of the league and all these stupid trade requests. But hard to blame AD really. Pelicans failed to put a decent team around him consistently.

Also tough luck for the Pels. Because this season they do indeed have a decent team, but injury trouble. Also small market, also Western Conference. Need to fix this stupidity asap. If New Orleans was an Eastern Conference team, there would probably not be a trade request right now.

Ever since he got RP as his agent the writing was on the wall. This is being announced now to try and force his way to LA since Boston can't trade for him until the off season with Kyrie on the roster.

I'm sure the Pelicans would LOVE to have Matthews and Barnes. Throw in Barea for good measure...

If I was the Pels I'd just DNP AD the whole season, trade Holiday, and tank hardcore. Then trade him in the summer once Boston can compete because then the competition will be higher.

Now, while we have virtually no shot at a package enough for AD, I'm watching Jrue Holiday very closely.

I'd absolutely love someone like him on my squad and he'd be obtainable should they trade AD, I'd think.

Could the Mavs get involved in a 3 way trade with LA and NOLA? Radio guys this morning suggested throwing in DSJ and Wes and getting Julius Randle and Lonzo (maybe more I can’t remember). They did say KCP would have to be involved with any trade to LA and he has a no trade clause.

Kuzma is the only young player on the Lakers that I would be interested in. KCP is on a one year deal for 12, so I'm guessing it's only to make numbers work. We can't trade any first round picks at this point, so it's kind of unlikely we get involved.

Mavs aren't getting AD.

Some team is stupid enough to offer a first rounder and we simply cannot offer one with our next pick being conditional.

Honestly think there's a
33% chance he stays put, expires and goes to the Lakers or Clippers.
33% chance he's traded to a contender like the Lakers (14th pick) or the Clippers somehow make a deal without having this year's first rounder.
33% chance a non-contender trades 1-2 first rounders for him and he leaves them this summer

My money is on Lakers trading their first-round pick, some second rounders, and some young players for him to keep LeBron happy.

So you want to downgrade DSJ to Ball?

Because Randle is going to be a FA next summer, so no point in giving up assets for him now

Not saying I want to do it. Iím not ready to give up on DSJ unless we are getting a star in return (which is unlikely). Simply what was suggested by Dallas radio guys. They think Ball would be a better fit next to Luka and heís already one of the better defending PGís.

Yeah a guard who cant shoot to save his life wont work in Ricks system and wont work in the modern NBA.

Dude is trash. His shot is so broken, it will be always a huge liability:
