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.

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.

Andrew Bogut says he is considering his options after being traded to the 76ers. A buyout is a strong possibility.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Charles Oakley plans to attend tonight's Knicks-Cavs game in Cleveland, he confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Goodman. It's worth noting that Oakley, who has been feuding with Knicks owner James Dolan, is close with Cavs star LeBron James.

Long-term, Embiid/Noel combo probably doesn't work w/ Simmons, Saric, etc. Still would have tried it more this season.

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Sixers expressed interest in trading for Andrew Bogut last summer, but he made it clear then he'd request a buyout if sent to Philadelphia.

The Sixers will spend the next three hours trying to find a trade home for Andrew Bogut before contemplating a buyout, league sources say

Neither Terrence Jones nor Omer Asik on the floor shooting as Pelicans practice opens to media. Asik is doubtful tonight with an illness.

Kevin Negandhi @KNegandhiESPN

Wish we all could've seen more of Embiid and Noel duo but worthy of a big contract? or risk him walking w no return? Not good options..

The Sixers are still deciding what to do with center Andrew Bogut, a source told The Undefeated.

From what I understand, Boston has let teams with players it really likes know that its Brooklyn picks are in play
