One source insists nothing imminent, but Pistons and Kings have discussed a trade that would send Josh Smith to Sacramento.
Smith averaged 16.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists over 35.5 minutes per game with the Pistons last season. Nothing is imminent here and there hasn't been much talk as to what the Kings would be sending the other way, but this is something to keep an eye on.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
