NBA - Scoop Du Jour

With the NBA trade deadline Thursday afternoon, the Dallas Mavericks are going to push right up against it and make a last-ditch run at Tayshaun Prince(notes) of the Detroit Pistons and J.R. Smith(notes) of the Denver Nuggets, according to ESPN. Both have expiring contracts.

Dallas isn't optimistic about acquiring either player, the site reports.

Since Caron Butler's(notes) season came to an end with an injury Jan. 1, the team has been interested in these players, the site notes.

The Pistons have said no to all requests for Prince, though, ESPN notes.
