You can't hide, Tyreke. We know you still play for the Kings.
It's Trade Deadline Day! All trades must be done by 3pm EST. We'll try to keep you up to date as trades happen and give you a fairly comprehensive list.Trade Deadline Watch:
According to Marc Stein
, Robert Sarver told Amar'''''e last night in closed-door meeting that Apostrophe is unlikely to be traded. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Excuse me while I go break something.
UPDATE: Chad Ford just tweeted: "Latest: Hearing one team is making a last-minute push for Amare. Suns source says a deal "may" happen." I hope to God the Suns aren't just messing with me again. GET THIS DEAL DONE!
Chad Ford has posted another update: "Amare is staying in Phoenix. Last minute bid failed. Sarver, Kerr, Stoudemire & agent meeting for dinner tonight to calm waters." FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. If you hear my car starting in the garage even though the garage door is closed, don't come and rescue me.
Also per Chad Ford, a proposed trade between the Pacers and Bobcats involving T.J. Ford for D.J. Augustine and Nazr Mohammed was NOT able to be done and talks fell apart in the last hour.
Boozer-to-Miami talks happened, but the Jazz were decidedly not interested. No deal.
UPDATE: John Hollinger brings us news of a Null-Star getting moved! "Looks like Wash just got under the luxury tax and won't need Z's help to get there ... @MrMichaelLee says they're paying Sac to take McGuire"Final Trades:
According to ESPN's Molly Qerim, "Celtics acquire Nate Robinson from Knicks for Eddie House, J.R. Giddens in 5-player trade" I don't know any more than that, but I'm going to go look at her Twitter page again just to see her background picture for a few more minutes.
UPDATE: JE Skeets passes this along: "Nate Robinson trade official: Nate and Marcus Landry for Eddie House, JR Giddens and Bill Walker"

"I've got my fists clenched, so it's not gay" Shouldn't he be in a fountain in somebody's yard spitting a stream of water?Nationally Televised Games:Nuggets at Crabs:
This could be the first chance for us to see Antawn Jamison suit up for Cleveland. Because of course he'll be such an important game-changer unlike that LeBaron or LeBran or whatever that dude's name is.Celtics at Lakers:
Oh, damn it all.
