Basketball : NBA 2016/2017


Oklahoma 24.2.17
Thunder acquire Gibson from Bulls

The Oklahoma City Thunder got some help for Russell Westbrook by acquiring forwards Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott from Chicago just before the NBA trade deadline. The Bulls also sent a 2018 second-round pick to the Thunder. Oklahoma City sent Cameron Payne, Joffrey Lauvergne and Anthony Morrow to Chicago. Gibson averaged 11.6 points and 7.0 rebounds this season in 55 starts for the Bulls this season.

Philadel. 24.2.17
Noel Traded to Mavericks

The Philadelphia 76ers agreed to trade power forward Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday in exchange for a package that includes Andrew Bogut, Justin Anderson and a first-round draft pick. Noel holds career averages of 10.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.6 blocks and 28.3 minutes per game in 171 games with Philadelphia.

Charlotte 23.2.17
Plumlee out at least 2 weeks

The Hornets will be without backup center Miles Plumlee for at least two weeks after an MRI revealed a second degree calf strain in his right leg. Plumlee is the latest Hornets center to struggle with injury issues. Starter Cody Zeller missed time before the All-Star break with a strained quadriceps. Plumlee was acquired in a trade with Milwaukee on Feb. 2 and has appeared in five games, averaging 3.2 points on 72.7 percent shooting from the field along with 3.8 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game for Charlotte.

Washing. 23.2.17
Wizards acquire Bogdanovic

The Washington Wizards added scoring punch to their bench acquiring swingman Bojan Bogdanovic from the Brooklyn Nets. Washington also got forward Chris McCullough in the deal and sent a lottery-protected 2017 first-round pick, Marcus Thornton and Andrew Nicholson to Brooklyn. Bogdanovic, 27, averaged a career-high 14.2 points a game as a starter for the struggling Nets. He is shooting 44 percent this season, including 37 percent from 3-point range. The 2011 second-round pick led the Nets with 99 3-pointers and was second on the team in scoring.

New Orl. 21.2.17
DeMarcus Cousins traded to Pelicans

The Sacramento Kings agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans, just two weeks after publicly proclaiming that the All-Star center was off the market. The teams announced Monday afternoon that the Pelicans had acquired Cousins and swingman Omri Casspi while sending Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, a 2017 first-round pick and a 2017 second-rounder to the Kings. The Kings also announced Monday that veteran forward Matt Barnes has been waived, a move that was necessary in order to create roster room to complete the Cousins deal.

Davis breaks Chamberlain's record

Anthony Davis scored a record 52 points and led the Western Conference past the Eastern Conference, 192-182 in the NBA's All-Star Game on Sunday in New Orleans. In a game that featured virtually no defense, he made 26 of 39 shots, and broke Wilt Chamberlain's mark of 42 points in the 1962 game. Davis became the first player since Kobe Bryant in 2011 to win MVP honors on his home floor. He was the star of stars in a game where the teams combined for more points than in any other All-Star contest.

Boston 17.2.17
Bradley, Brown out with injuries

Boston guard Avery Bradley and rookie forward Jaylen Brown have been ruled out for the Celtics' final game before the All-Star break due to injuries. Bradley hasn't played in a month because of a sore right Achilles. He is averaging 17.7 points in 36 games this season. Brown missed his third straight game with a right hip strain.

New York 16.2.17
Noah, Jennings out vs. Thunder

New York Knicks center Joakim Noah and guard Brandon Jennings sat out Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder with injuries. Noah missed his fifth straight game with a sore left hamstring. Coach Jeff Hornacek said there's no timetable on Noah's return, and he hopes the All-Star break helps with the recovery. Jennings is out with a sore Achilles' tendon.

Cleveland 15.2.17
Love out at least 6 weeks

Cavaliers forward and 2017 NBA All-Star Kevin Love will miss at least six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, a blow to the defending NBA champions as they try to lock up the top seed in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage in the playoffs. Love is averaging 20 points and 11.1 rebounds in his third and best season for the Cavaliers. He's shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 38.4 percent from three.

Denver 14.2.17
Nuggets acquire Mason Plumlee

The Denver Nuggets have acquired center Mason Plumlee, a 2018 second round draft pick and cash consideration from Portland in exchange for center Jusuf Nurkic and a 2017 protected first round pick via Memphis. Plumlee appeared in 54 games for Portland this season, averaging 11.1 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 28.1 minutes per game. The 26-year-old played a key role in Portland's playoff run last season, starting all 11 games and averaging 7.0 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 27.8 minutes per game.
