Anthony Slater, Warriors and NBA reporter for The Athletic, joined the Deuce & Mo Show on Wednesday to talk about the upcoming trade deadline and potential moves that could happen for the Sacramento Kings and around the league.

Topics discussed include:

  • Will there be fireworks heading into the NBA trade deadline?
  • Is there smoke behind the Matisse Thybulle rumors?
  • “I would lean more like rim protector, like a Nerlens Noel-type that they could use for more optionality. Throw a guy out there who can block a shot at the rim. To me, you could argue KZ Okpala is already Matisse Thybulle.”
  • Why Mason Plumlee should be cheap to obtain
  • John Collins has been connected to many NBA teams. What would a team have to offer to actually get Atlanta to trade him?
  • What can Keegan Murray do to be considered for Rookie of the Year?
  • Of the five games left on the road trip, the New Orleans Pelicans could be the toughest opponent
  • Why Domantas Sabonis is a lock to be an All-Star and De’Aaron Fox is on the fringe
  • What’s impressed him the most of Fox’s season?
  • If the Sacramento Kings end the season in the top six of the Western Conference standings
