2/20/2017 Langston Galloway, NO, G
Galloway will head to the Kings as part of Sunday's blockbuster trade that sent All-Star DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans.

Analysis: The three-year veteran is merely a throw-in in the deal and could be waived shortly afterward. Galloway averaged 8.6 points and shot 37.7 percent from 3-point range in 55 games off the bench for the Pelicans.
2/20/2017 Omri Casspi, Sac, F
Casspi has been traded to the Pelicans along with DeMarcus Cousins in exchange for guards Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield and Langston Galloway and 2017 first and second-round picks.

Analysis: The 28-year-old could provide the Pelicans with some bench scoring in their playoff push, provided he's physically able to. Casspi averaged a career-high 11.8 points and shot over 40 percent from 3-point range last season, but a lingering calf injury has limited him to just 22 games thus far in 2016-17.
2/19/2017 Anthony Davis, NO, F-C
Davis put on a show for the hometown crowd en route to earning MVP honors at the All-Star Game in New Orleans. The Pelicans standout recorded a record 52 points on 26-of-39 shooting and added 10 rebounds and two steals to lead the West to a 192-182 win.

Analysis: Davis shattered Wilt Chamberlain's mark of 42 points that had stood since 1962 in the highest-scoring All-Star Game in history. It remains to be seen whether this is the last time we see the dominant forward on the big stage this season, as the Pelicans are currently 2 1/2 games out of a playoff spot.
2/19/2017 Russell Westbrook, OKC, PG
Westbrook delivered another dynamite performance in the All-Star Game to help the West to a 192-182 win. The Thunder superstar went 7 of 13 from 3-point range while amassing 41 points in just 20 minutes along with seven assists and five rebounds.

Analysis: Westbrook, the MVP of the previous two All-Star Games, has averaged 37.7 points and gone 19 of 39 from beyond the arc over the last three editions. As fantasy players well know, he's quite prolific during the regular season as well.
2/19/2017 DeMarcus Cousins, Sac, F-C
The Kings agreed to trade Cousins along with forward Omri Casspi to the Pelicans following Sunday's All-Star Game. Sacramento will receive guards Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway, along with 2017 first and second-round picks, as part of the blockbuster deal.

Analysis: This explains why Cousins played a mere two minutes in the All-Star Game. The move gives New Orleans, currently 2 1/2 games out of a playoff spot, an imposing frontcourt with the 26-year-old paired alongside fellow All-Star Anthony Davis. Cousins' fantasy numbers could take a slight hit, though he'll surely still have plenty of value with his new team.
2/19/2017 Tyreke Evans, NO, G-F
Evans has been traded to the Kings as part of Sunday's blockbuster deal that landed DeMarcus Cousins in New Orleans.

Analysis: The injury-prone guard began his career with Sacramento and won the NBA Rookie of the Year award as a King in 2009-10, then went on to have three more good seasons with the club before being shipped to the Pelicans. Provided he can stay healthy, Evans has a chance to put up some numbers with the Kings' roster decimated by injuries and further gutted by Sunday's deal.
2/19/2017 Buddy Hield, NO, SG
The Kings have acquired Hield from New Orleans as part of the 5-player trade that sent All-Star DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans.

Analysis: Hield should immediately take over as Sacramento's starting shooting guard and receive a bump from the 20.4 minutes per game he was averaging with the Pelicans. The No. 6 overall pick in last year's draft has shown flashes of being a productive scorer as a rookie, averaging 8.6 points and shooting 36.9 percent from 3-point range over his first 57 NBA games.
2/18/2017 Kristaps Porzingis, NY, F-C
Porzingis won the NBA All-Star Saturday night skills competition.

Analysis: Porzingis emerged from the big-men's division that included the Pelicans' Anthony Davis and Denver's Nikola Jokic. The three-round, obstacle-course competition tests dribbling, passing, agility and shooting skills.
2/18/2017 Eric Gordon, Hou, SG
Gordon has dethroned Golden State splash brother Klay Thompson as the NBA All-Star 3-point contest champion.

Analysis: And he did it in New Orleans, where he played the previous five seasons before leaving last summer in free agency. Gordon's score of 21 in a final-round tie-breaker defeated Cleveland's Kyrie Irving, the 2013 winner who had 18. The pair had each finished with a score of 20 in the final round, meaning they each had to shoot 25 more balls to decide it. Thompson was stunningly eliminated in the first round.
2/17/2017 Pau Gasol, SA, F-C
Gasol is the newest member of the National Basketball Players Association's executive committee.

Analysis: The six-time All-Star from Spain was elected on Friday, and starts his three-year term immediately. He replaces Steve Blake, who also had a three-year term and is not currently in the NBA.
2/17/2017 Jamal Murray, Den, SG
Murray scored 36 points and the World squad beat the U.S. 150-141 on Friday night in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Analysis: Murray, a Canadian and Denver Nuggets rookie out of Kentucky, went 9 of 14 on 3-pointers and was voted the game's MVP.
2/16/2017 Damian Lillard, Por, PG
Lillard finished with 13 on 3 of 19 shooting in Wednesday's 111-88 loss to the Jazz.

Analysis: Lillard has been in a big shooting slump as the Blazers have lost five of six to begin February, shooting 33.9 percent.
2/16/2017 Jusuf Nurkic, Por, C
Nurkic had 13 points, seven rebounds and made all five field goals in his Blazers' debut, a 111-88 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

Analysis: The opportunity should be there for Nurkic to thrive on Portland's second unit, and he's off to a good start.
2/16/2017 Devin Booker, Pho, SG
Booker scored 23 points to lead the Suns over the Los Angeles Lakers 137-101 on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Booker's shot has been returning to form in the new year. He's averaging 25.0 points and shooting 43.6 percent from 3-point range since Jan. 3.
2/16/2017 Eric Bledsoe, Pho, G
Bledsoe had his third career triple-double, finishing with 25 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, to lead the Suns over the Los Angeles Lakers 137-101 on Wednesday night.

Analysis: It was the first triple-double for a Phoenix player since November 2015 and Bledsoe's first since he did it against Dallas on Dec. 23, 2014. He's quietly having a fantastic season for a lousy Suns team.
2/16/2017 Lou Williams, LAL, G
Williams scored 21 points in 24 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 137-101 loss to the Suns.

Analysis: Williams, who could be traded before next week's deadline, should be a bench boost regardless of where he's playing. He's scored at least 20 points 25 times this season, tops among NBA reserves.
2/16/2017 Russell Westbrook, OKC, PG
Westbrook scored 38 points and had 14 rebounds and 12 assists, his 27th triple-double of the season, to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the New York Knicks 116-105 on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Westbrook moved into sole possession of third place for the most triple-doubles in a season, behind Oscar Robertson's 41 in 1961-62 and Wilt Chamberlain's 31 in 1967-68. He now has 64 for his career.
2/16/2017 Victor Oladipo, OKC, G
Oladipo scored 21 points in the Thunder's 116-105 win over the Knicks on Wednesday.

Analysis: Oladipo has been struggling with his shot lately, shooting just 40.6 percent and 25.5 percent from 3 over his last 10 games.
2/16/2017 Derrick Rose, NY, PG
Rose scored 25 points in the Knicks' 116-105 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Rose has been ultra efficient the last four games, shooting 57.9 percent.
2/16/2017 Carmelo Anthony, NY, F
Anthony had 30 points for the Knicks after being selected to the All-Star Game as an injury replacement for Cleveland's Kevin Love earlier in the night, but New York fell 116-105 in Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Analysis: Anthony has averaged 28.4 points and shot 54.1 percent over his last five games, but it's still a head-scratcher that he was chosen as an All-Star over the more deserving Bradley Beal.
