Who should the Thunder pursue in the buyout market?

OKC was quiet at the trade deadline, but are they still looking for available talent? The Thunder, as expected, sat out the of trade season, keeping the roster intact, aside from dumping Timothee Luwawu-Cabbarot, who wasn’t playing, to the Chicago bulls to save money.

How does the Western Conference stack up post-trade deadline?

Most of the big moves were out East, but teams in the West made some crucial trades as well. Despite the flurry of movement in the Eastern Conference, most of the best teams in the West stood pat this trade deadline. There was no huge Anthony Davis trade, no superstar team-ups, and not much to change about the conference’s postseason outlook. The Warriors, Nuggets, and Thunder, the three best teams in the conference, didn’t make a single trade. The Jazz and Spurs also opted not to make any changes. These teams are all playoff locks, and seem content with their rosters as is. With the...

With eight active players, the Grizzlies were already undermanned. Compound that with Mike Conley and Justin Holiday being the only players on the roster with more than one season of NBA experience, and this game didn’t look promising. But as...
