Knicks and Clippers have had recent talks about shooting guard Courtney Lee, sources tell Ramona Shelburne and I. The Knicks have been seeking draft picks back in most conversations they've had with teams, per sources. The Clippers don't have any immediate first-round picks to offer to New York may have to settle for a player or get a third team involved to push a deal through.

Pacers involved in talks with teams potentially to clear roster spots, sources say. Teams suspect might be related to Celtics talks

Can echo what @WindhorstESPN just said on @SportsCenter: More than a few rival teams out there think Boston has a shot at Paul George today.

No deal appears likely for the Jazz at this point, according to a source.

If they reach 67 wins, the Warriors will have at least 67 in three straight seasons. The Bulls are the only other franchise to win 67 games in three seasons and they didn't do it in consecutive seasons.

Sources: If Sixers do not receive Mavs top-18 protected pick this season, it converts to 2 2nd-round picks: Mavs 2nds in 2017 and 2018.

DeMarcus Cousins said it was nice to have stability while the rest of the NBA deals with the trade deadline. "I know I'm not getting traded," he said with a laugh.

With the trade deadline approaching at 2 p.m. CT, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said he understands if a few players are tense. "I think there is more than what they let on," D'Antoni said Thursday. "It's part of the business anytime you get uprooted and if you have kids and they're in school, it can be stressful. I can understand that. But I do think they know it's part of the business and they try to downplay it as much as they can." Rockets traded Corey Brewer to the Lakers Tuesday night and Patrick Beverley and K.J. McDaniels have received interest from other teams.

DeMarcus Cousins says he went to dinner last night with Dell Demps and Alvin Gentry, and did some house hunting with Anthony Davis.

The Cavs won't make any decision on potentially bringing in Larry Sanders to fill their 15th roster spot until after the 3 p.m. deadline, a league source tells ESPN. Andrew Bogut is another big Cleveland has long coveted and with Philadelphia likely moving the former Golden State center, expect CLE to try to get into the mix there.

Provided the deal terms don't change, Dallas will create two trade exceptions in this Nerlens Noel deal, worth $6.6 million and 1.5 million

Also the DUMBEST counter to a Butler or George trade "Do those guys win you a championship?" Ok then, lets wait to only trade for LeBron.

The addition of Nerlens Noel fits Dallas' dual goals of fighting for a playoff spot and preparing for a post-Dirk future. Noel, 22, has upside to be a Tyson Chandler type of rim protector, rebounder and finisher.
