KG to Sit vs Suns - C's Set to Sign White

Kevin Garnett will sit tonight vs the Phoenix Suns and Jeff Green will get the start in his place. Small ball doesn't begin to describe what we will see tonight. More like "Mini Ball."

8 a.m. ET: Everybody is on the clock. The NBA trade deadline arrives Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, marking the last chance this season for teams to add that last pivotal player to put them over the hump — or to dump that extra salary or free-agent-to-be before it is too late.
