Gerald Green dropped a game and career-high 41 points on the Thunder to go with five rebounds, two assists, a block, and a team-high three steals in 41 minutes of the 128-122 home win.
Green is averaging 24 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.8 steals in 34.8 minutes over his last five games, but like Darren Collison of the Clippers, Green's role as a starter may soon be coming to an end as Eric Bledsoe is nearing a return. (Green is averaging about seven more points and more than a rebound per game as a starter this season then when coming off the bench).ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Gerald Wallace has been traded to the 76ers.
It is unclear what the 76ers plans are for Wallace, but for now he seems to be in line for starting minutes, based on the current talent in Philadelphia. They can't amnesty Wallace, as they used that privilege in 2012 for Elton Brand, but maybe they could stretch his contract like they considered for Javale McGee last season. In any event, Wallace is past his fantasy prime. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Luis Severino's next start will be with the Yankees, GM says Brian Cashman.
They really have nowhere else to turn considering they have Pineda on the DL and they made it clear that Severino is untouchable in any trade deal. The Yankees value Severino as their top prospect, and for good reason, as his upper 90's fastball has tremendous movement, and his secondary pitch, his changeup, comes from the same arm slot at about 12 mph slower with similar movement. He also features a less polished slider, but most would expect Severino to make an almost instant impact with the big league club, especially with that powerful Yankees offense backing him up.
