The 76ers are an unintended beneficiary of the Kings' trade of DeMarcus Cousins. They can swap first-round picks with the Kings as the result of a 2015 trade. The 76ers are currently 2 1/2 games behind the Kings in the standings. The 76ers also own the Lakers' first-round pick, though it is protected if it is in the top three.

While Virginia retires Malcolm Brogdon's jersey tonight, one ACC coach told me more should be signing his praises: "Everybody wants to talk about the sexy 1-and-dones, talk about a guy who went through the process and now is making a contribution on an NBA team when about 80% of the guys taken in the 1st round played in the D-league. These guys better take notice when you pack your bags and get ready for the next level, be ready for it."

Miami leads Virginia 20-19 at the half in Charlottesville. Good defense? Slow pace? Yes and yes. The two teams combined to shoot 15-of-44 from the floor in a 25-possession first half.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Boston College has actually made considerable progress since last season, particularly on offense. Alas, road games at Florida State are not conducive to displays of improvement. The Seminoles are up big on the Eagles with less than eight minutes to go in the first half.

The Winnipeg Jets will be without top 4 defenseman Jacob Trouba for two games, a blow for a team just one point out of a playoff spot. The NHL suspended Trouba two games Monday for his illegal check to the head of Senators winger Mark Stone in Sunday's game. Trouba has no prior history with NHL discipline but that was a clear hit to the head.

Dennis Wideman was recently demoted to the third pairing in Calgary which exposed an obvious need for the Flames to try and acquire a second pairing blue liner. They got him Monday in the name of Micheal Stone from Arizona. Flames GM Brad Treliving knows him well from his days as AGM in Arizona. Stone is UFA July 1 but perhaps if he's a good fit the rest of the season both sides will want to consider an extension. Either way, the Flames didn't give up much in a third round pick this year and a conditional fifth in 2018 (if he re-signs). Good deal for Calgary.
