Marc Stein: Word is coming in that the Knicks are closing in on some new players.

It is not immediately clear if this would be two separate trades or a three-way exchange, but I'm hearing that Oklahoma City's Chris Wilcox -- who went back to the Thunder on Wednesday night when the Tyson Chandler trade was rescinded -- and Chicago's Larry Hughes are New York-bound.

To complete the transaction(s), Oklahoma City would get Malik Rose and Chicago would receive Tim Thomas, Jerome James and Anthony Roberson.

Trying to nail it all down for you.

Shelden Williams + Bobby Brown for McCants

Kings do small trade with Minnesota

By Sam Amick
samick@sacbee.com

The Kings have agreed on a trade to send forward Shelden Williams and point guard Bobby Brown to Minnesota in exchange for fourth-year guard Rashad McCants and veteran big man Calvin Booth, according to two league sources.

On the financial front, the deal - which is done but pending league approval - takes the Kings off the hook for the $736,420 owed to Brown next season (player option) while giving them two players who have expiring contracts in McCants ($2.6 million, restricted free agent this summer) and Booth ($1.1 million). On the floor, McCants enters as a fiery addition to the backcourt who will be looking to breath new life into his career in Sacramento after falling out of the TImberwolves' rotation this season. The 6-foot-4, North Carolina product who was drafted 14th overall in 2005 scored a season-high 23 points at New York on Dec. 26, but has struggled to find minutes or make an impact otherwise. Booth hasn't played this season.

With Williams and Brown leaving Sacramento, they become the latest Kings experiments that simply didn't pay off. Brown was signed last summer as a hot commodity, an undrafted point guard out of Cal State Fullerton who played one season in Germany and drew league-wide interest during July's summer league in Las Vegas in which he flourished while playing wtih New Orleans. Yet even with Kings starting point guard Beno Udrih struggling this season, Brown didn't pan out as Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie had hoped.

Williams was the No. 5 pick out of Duke in the 2006 draft who came to the Kings from Atlanta on Feb. 16, 2008 in the trade that sent Mike Bibby to the Hawks. The Kings had hoped he would prove his critics wrong in Sacramento, but he struggled to find playing time and had little impact during his year-long stay.

Seriously, after all the hype about the economy and teams shedding contracts, this is starting to look like one weak-[expletive] trade deadline.

The Celtics have reportedly traded Patrick O'Bryant to the Kings in exchange for a possible draft pick. Boston will not receive a player in return.
The Celtics unload O'Bryant's contract from their payroll, and the Kings get a rather inexpensive look at a seven-foot former lottery pick. However, odds are that O'Bryant won't get enough minutes to make a fantasy impact in Sacramento with Spencer Hawes, Jason Thompson and Drew Gooden (if healthy) all standing in the way.

Joe Smith will be bought out and he will join the Celtics

Marbury might be bought out as well and he might go to there

I'm willing to go out on a limb and say the Lakers will be the ones bringing in Joe Smith, not the celtics.

Thursday, 1:15 p.m.: Quiet deadline for Celtics

From SI.com's Chris Mannix: Not surprisingly, there will be no deadline-day trade for the Celtics, according to a source close to the team. Boston is holding out hope that Joe Smith will stay with the Thunder through the deadline and then negotiate a buyout, after which the Celtics could use their open roster spot -- created by the recent trade of Sam Cassell to Sacramento -- to sign him. If Smith does not get dealt (his trade to New Orleans was rescinded Wednesday), the Thunder are now believed to be willing to buy him out of his contract. Cassell, who was waived by the Kings on Wednesday, will not return to Boston as a player but may be brought back in an assistant coach/player development role.

Not likely. Smith is friends with KG and has talked openly about wanting to go play for the Celtics.

ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the Oklahoma City Thunder have acquired Bulls' guard Thabo Sefolosha.

The Thunder will send one of their five stockpiled first-round picks in the next two drafts to the Bulls in return

Well they may have to choose one player, Moore or Smith:

I'm also told that Sacramento will be releasing Mikki Moore after the Kings were unable to include him in any trades before the deadline. Given the leaguewide need for big men, there figures to be a fair bit of interest in Moore once he clears waivers. Expectation is high that he will wind up in Boston, reports ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.

what a dumb trade by the rockets

unless they trade Tmac for Baron, this doesn't make any sense

Lowry and Aaron Brooks are not good fits with the starting lineup

I saw that. Definitely makes things more interesting. Hopefully they take Mikki, I'd rather have Joe.
