The Pistons and Kings are once more discussing trade scenarios involving Pistons forward Josh Smith and are on the hunt for a third team to make a deal work.
Smith's first season in Motown did not go as planned, but a fresh start may get this triple-double threat back on the right track. If he was to join the Kings, he would make for a great addition to already solid froncourt that already features DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. Although this would look great on paper, there needs to be more contracts and players involved, including the addition of another team, before any serious discussions are made. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
