Milwaukee Bucks were reportedly interested in Kemba Walker

For one, the Hornets aren't all that interested in trading him - contrary to an ESPN report from last week. For the Hornets, it's going to be particularly challenging because they want to include one of their less-than-desirable contracts in a package.

Monday, they held off the Sacramento Kings 112-107 at Spectrum Center after leading by as many as 20 points to a rebuilding team with just 13 victories this season.

"It's not like we are shopping him", Jordan said.

Greta Gerwig Nabs Best Director Oscar Nomination With 'Lady Bird'
One of them is Best Director nominee Greta Gerwig of Lady Bird , who surpassed a milestone in the Oscars's 90-year history. The last was Kathryn Bigelow for directing The Hurt Locker - and she became the only woman to ever win the award in 2010.

This one's kind of unlikely to happen at the time because the Dallas Mavericks are reportedly eager to wait for Dennis Smith Jr and just let him play though his mistakes to become the team's franchise player after Dirk Nowitzki's return.

The problem is that Jordan won't trade Kemba Walker unless it is for an All-Star player. On the season, he's averaging 21.8 points, 5.9 assists and 1.2 steals per contest.

He's expected be sidelined at least another month with a sprained ankle.

Wenger Provides Aubameyang Transfer Update
There are still eight days left in what has arguably been the most action packed January transfer window in recent memory. It should be seen whether the Premier League outfit can match the Bundesliga side's valuation for Aubameyang.

Walker is in his seventh year in the league and developed into an All-Star-caliber point guard, but as Wojnarowski noted, he's being used as the potential sweetener in a deal mainly revolved on shedding bad contracts and pushing the reset button on an already-failed operation.

But Jordan isn't ready to give up on the season. He was Charlotte's first-round pick in the 2011 National Basketball Association draft. There are only two All-Star players on the Cavaliers team that they could consider trading for someone like Walker. Also, we've been asking about players. However, Jordan did say that he would "listen to opportunities". "He's done a hell of a job of turning himself into an All-Star". Their most recent All-Star was Andre Drummond in the 2015-16 season. But if the Hornets do decide to go in another direction, they better get a return that's worth it for the 27-year-old.

Mired in a five-game losing streak, the Pistons (22-23) have fallen to ninth in the East.

New England Women's boss Phil Neville deletes Twitter account over 'sexist' tweet
Marley will now return to leading England women's development teams, including taking a squad to this summer's U20 World Cup. Neville has a UEFA Pro license, but has never been a manager, nor does he have experience whatsoever in women's football.

Jordan said several factors beyond the team's control - coach Steve Clifford's six-week medical leave, the early-season injury to Nic Batum and the ankle sprain that cost rookie Malik Monk summer preparation - all contributed to the team's record: Seven games below.500 and four games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, now held by the Philadelphia 76ers at 22-21.
