The NBA suspended Blazers’ Meyers Leonard and Sixers’ Daniel Orton one game each for their scuffle Saturday night.

The Sixers and Rockets have a trade in place for center Omer Asik, according to a report by Sam Amick of USA Today.
Asik is expected to be dealt within the week, as Houston attempts to milk all the value out of their backup big man. Asik has been coming off the bench since Houston brought in Dwight Howard this offseason.

One thing led to another and all of a sudden Leonard had thrown Orton...
Philadelphia is not going to rush their star rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams back from a right knee infection despite going just 1-9 in games the 22-year-old does not play. He has missed a total of 10 games so far this season between a left arch bruise and a right knee infection and with no practice on Sunday, the 76ers will likely sit him out Monday's game against...
The number six overall draft pick from the 2013 June NBA draft has yet to make a professional debut. Nerlens Noel was taken by New Orleans, then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for All-Star Jrue Holiday.
