NBA All-Star Game: Open thread, lineups, TV info and trade rumors

Nothing better than watching the NBA All-Star game while pondering the latest trade rumors or trying to develop some deals that teams should consider.

NBA All-Star weekend wraps up on Sunday evening with the signature event - the actual game.

Steph Curry and Zach LaVine made All-Star Saturday night hum with eye-opening efforts in the shooting and dunk contests. Now the focus shifts to MSG for the game which is dealing with a series of mid-year injuries but still includes plenty of talent from both Conferences to put on a show fitting for the mecca.

This is also a signature weekend for many of the league's front office personnel as they have extra time without games to negotiate deals before the trade deadline hits on Thursday. No doubt the Pacers are making and taking plenty of calls but they have managed to keep their name out of any significant rumors thus far. That will surely change but silence is often deafening for the Pacers when it comes to trade news popping up without notice.

As for trade rumors which spice up NBA All-Star weekend, all eyes are on Phoenix as Goran Dragic and now Isaiah Thomas are names churning through the rumor mill. Many Pacers fans covet Dragic but would you consider a more affordable option in IT?
