Ricky Rubio is a veteran of the NBA trade deadline, having seen his name surface in rumors several times over the last few years. In the end, the Wolves decided not to trade their point guard for Derrick Rose, meaning they will make their push for the eighth seed in the Western Conference with Rubio as their starter. Wolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau said the team never got very close to making a move with Rubio or anyone else.

Charles Oakley reportedly plans to attend another New York Knicks game this season, but it’s not exactly an omen that the cold war between the bruising forward and his former team is thawing. Oakley won’t attend Madison Square Garden again anytime soon, but he will be at Thursday’s game between the Knicks and Cavaliers at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena, per the New York Daily News. You’ll recall the 53-year-old former All-Star was dragged to the ground and arrested by MSG security amid an alleged confrontation with Knicks owner James Dolan earlier this month.

Richard Jefferson watches Kyrie Irving soar high above a flat surface. The biggest story of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend was he believes Earth is flat (in addition to a bunch of other conspiracy theories), setting off consternation and bewildered laughter all over. It was later revealed that Kyrie was maybe-sorta making a different point and does not actually believe all globe-related science is a sham, but he didn’t exactly walk things back entirely.

What a day for the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks to be scheduled for a game. The contest also will tip off five hours after the NBA's trade deadline, when franchises need to have informed the league office about the swaps they made. Both teams could be active before the deadline, even if it's not the Carmelo-to-the-Cavs deal that would turn the NBA on its ear.

Carmelo Anthony hasn't heard anything from the New York Knicks that makes him believe he's being traded. A day before the NBA's trade deadline, Anthony said Wednesday that he expects to remain with the Knicks, since they've given him no indication they're looking to deal their All-Star forward. Anthony has a rare no-trade clause and would have to agree to any deal, so he would expect to be kept in the loop if any serious proposals were being discussed.

Carmelo Anthony had a half-season of clues about what Phil Jackson thought of him, and now it was his turn to evaluate his boss. Anthony had trumpeted his trust in Jackson when he re-signed in 2014 and reaffirmed it months later, even as Jackson continued trading away key players from the best team Anthony ever played on in New York. The Knicks are 23-34, 12th in the Eastern Conference and on pace to miss the playoffs for the third time in Jackson's three full seasons as president of basketball operations.
