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
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
