The Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks are in the market for frontcourt help and potential wing depth ahead of the Feb. 6 trade deadline, league sources told the New York Times' Marc Stein.

The Mavericks lost starting center Dwight Powell to a torn Achilles tendon on Tuesday. The Clippers, meanwhile, have lacked depth all season behind bigs Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell.

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond and Steven Adams of the Oklahoma City Thunder are reportedly available, and the Phoenix Suns have also not ruled out trading center Aron Baynes, sources told Stein. The 33-year-old New Zealander is on an expiring contract.

Report: Kreider atop 8 teams' trade wish lists .
Chris Kreider is in high demand. Eight teams have informed the New York Rangers they have the winger at the top of their respective wish lists ahead of the Feb. 24 trade deadline, reports The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun. The Rangers are reportedly seeking a return for Kreider equal to what they received for Kevin Hayes at last year's trade deadline. The Winnipeg Jets sent New York a first-round pick and forward Brendan Lemieux in that deal. Like Kreider, Hayes was a pending unrestricted free agent, though he plays a more coveted position at center.Kreider is expected to be the top rental target as the deadline approaches.
