VIDEO: Pistons’ Marcus Morris takes elbow right to the guys

Vine A 2 for 11 shooting night wasn’t the worst thing that happened to Marcus Morris during the Pistons loss to the New Orleans Pelicans Thursday night.  A -21 +/- while terrible didn’t compare either.  Morris was on the wrong end of a Toney Douglas elbow to a bad spot that left Morris doubled over for some time.

Karl-Anthony Towns seizes the ball (and future?) from Anthony Davis

So, in this case "the future" is just a ball. But man, it's a pretty darn important one.Anthony Davis is supposed to be the NBA's next great top two or three player, but another one-and-done from the same school as his has been making a case for that standing of late.

It’s hard to tell if the struggling New Orleans Pelicans want to act as sellers at the NBA trade deadline, though they have quite the attractive piece to offer in forward Ryan Anderson. New Orleans sits at 11-25 and well out of the running in the Western Conference, so it only makes sense other teams—both rebuilders and hopeful contenders alike—examine the roster and make...
