Carmelo Anthony shares what he missed most about being in the league last season.
Jordan McRae has agreed to be bought out by the Denver Nuggets, as the Phoenix Suns plan to sign him once the buyout is completed.
The Lakers have decided to waive shooting guard Troy Daniels as they will likely look to bring in Dion Waiters sometime during March.
After the Troy Daniels waive, it has been announced that the Los Angeles Lakers will bring in Dion Waiters for a workout on Monday.
The Lakers have struggled at the guard spot this season especially in their second unit. They now look to strengthen it, with a dynamic, veteran scorer.

No Luka Doncic? No problem! Kristaps Porzingis came up huge to lead the Mavericks to a huge win on the road.

No Embiid? No Simmons? No problem! Shake Milton absolutely took over for Philadelphia, but couldn’t do enough to get the win over the Clippers.
Kawhi Leonard had 30 points, and Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell combine for 48 off the bench to assist the Clippers in a huge win.

Lastly, we saw Lebron James and Zion Williamson square off for the second time.
The highly anticipated matchup didn’t disappoint, as Zion Williamson went for a career-high 35 points. It would be enough though, as Lebron James would record a triple-double [34-13-12] to lead the Lakers without Anthont Davis, to a 122-114 win.
