The Cubs and Phillies have engaged in talks on a trade for star Philly pitcher Cole Hamels, but are not especially likely to complete a deal.
Although the Cubs have the depth in their farm system to pull off a trade for Hamels, it is unlikely that he will be moved before the off-season. The Phillies will have a lot more leverage if more teams are engaged in trade talks after the season, so expect him to remain in Philadelphia the rest of the way. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
