The NBA trade deadline is February 8.

The LA Clippers have agreed to a contract extension with Lou Williams, who had been one of the most pursued players heading into this week's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

It appeared the Clippers may be clearing house after trading away Blake Griffin, but the team is committing to Williams as it transitions to a future with a core of Tobias Harris, Danilo Gallinari and Williams.

Can Manchester City win the quadruple this season?
The Chile global saw his penalty saved in the 68th minute but scored when the ball richocheted off goalkeeper Jonas Lossl. La Liga: Real Sociedad 5 (Willian Jose 32, Illarramendi 62, 89, Canales 75, Elustondo 82) bt Deportivo La Coruna 0.

Because of Williams' stature as one of the most pursued players on the trade market, his looming commitment to remain with the Clippers could serve as an impetus to get a sluggish trade deadline into gear on Wednesday.

Williams is very deserving of this extension due to the performances he has had for the Clippers this season. At least four teams are reported to have interest in Evans.

Williams is in the final year of a three-year, $21 million deal he signed with the Lakers in 2015. The veteran has averaged 13.5 points during his 13-year career and has also played for Philadelphia, Atlanta, Toronto, the Lakers and Houston. DeAndre Jordan and Williams were both mentioned in trade speculation, as the team looked likely to go in a new direction.

Snap Revenue Surges 72% on User Growth, Advertising Gains
Chief executive Evan Spiegel said Snap had executed its 2017 plan to improve quality, performance and automation well. When Snap first went public in March, 2017, shares sold for $24.48 a share, but they've declined steadily since.

Memphis is seeking a first-round pick in exchange for Evans, though, per Wojnarowski, and it's unclear whether Boston president of baskeball operations Danny Ainge would part with such an asset given the Herald's report that he won't trade Smart for a one-year rental.

The Clippers have discussed trade scenarios for center, but league sources said that, so far, no traction exists on a deal, and there's a real possibility that Jordan will finish the season with the Clippers.
