James Harden lit up the Nuggets on Sunday with 41 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 37 minutes of action.

The MVP frontrunner shot 11-of-20 from the field and 13-of-16 from the line with a 6-of-10 mark from downtown. He scored 17 points in the first quarter alone and has been as-advertised for fantasy owners. Anthony Davis is right there with Harden for the No. 1 spot in most fantasy settings, and both AD and Harden benefit from a terrific schedule down the stretch -- the Pelicans and Rockets each play four games in Weeks 21, 22 and 23. Let the good times roll.

The February 7th game between the Pacers and Pelicans has been rescheduled for March 21.

The game was postponed due to a leak in the roof, but this could be seen as good news because it's in the heart of the fantasy playoffs. This means the Pacers will have four games instead of three in Week 23 (Mar. 19-Mar. 25), while the Pelicans will have four games as opposed to three as well.

The 76ers have reportedly expressed interest in Tyreke Evans.

The Grizzlies want a first-round pick for Evans and the 76ers are reportedly reluctant to throw that into the deal, although Memphis may be able to entice them if they'd be willing to take on Jerryd Bayless, who is owed roughly $8.5 million next season. Evans has also been linked to Boston, New Orleans, Miami, OKC and Houston, and it seems likely that he won't finish the year in Memphis. He's in an ideal situation in Memphis, so owners may want to sell-high before he gets dealt.

The Timberwolves, Warriors, Thunder and Pelicans are all reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Nick Young.

In terms of fantasy hoops, Young's best opportunity to produce would be in New Orleans, but the Warriors present Swaggy P with the best opportunity to chase a ring, which is reportedly something that is important to him. It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out, but we likely won't see a team make a move on Young until some of the bigger name two-guards come off the board.

Ty Lawson has fielded calls from multiple teams, including the Timberwolves, Kings, Thunder and Pelicans.

Lawson may have to wait until the remaining top-tier point guards find homes before he inks a new deal. He has had some issues off the floor, but Lawson served as a solid backup last season in Sacramento, where he averaged 9.9 points, 4.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 25.1 minutes.

The New Orleans Pelicans plan to connect with Nick Young on Saturday.

With Jrue Holiday agreeing to re-sign with New Orleans, the core of the team (a Big 3 of Holiday, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins) is in place. Now, the Pels are looking to flesh out the rest of the roster by adding backcourt depth. Young is coming off a solid season in Los Angeles. He averaged 13.2 points for the Lakers, shooting 43.0 percent from the floor and 40.4 percent from 3-point territory.

The Pelicans and Pacers are early possibilities for Rajon Rondo, according to CSN Chicago's Vincent Goodwill.

In case you missed it, Rondo was waived earlier today and is an unrestricted free agent. The Pelicans will obviously be doing all they can to bring back Jrue Holiday, but the Pacers could be without a point guard as Jeff Teague appears to be the favorite to land in Minnesota.

With the 40th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Hornets have selected Dwayne Bacon out of Florida State.

The Hornets acquired this pick after trading down from No. 31 in a deal with New Orleans. Although Bacon, a 6'5" prospect, was ranked 74th (out of 100) on the Draft Express big board, he has the look of an NBA wing with a 6'10" wingspan and offers intriguing potential. Per Draft Express, some concerns with Bacon revolve around his consistency, basketball IQ and level of engagement.

The Suns have reportedly spoken to the Pelicans about a trade involving Jared Dudley, likely in exchange for second-round picks.

New Orleans holds the No. 40 pick, in addition to the No. 52 pick they acquired from the Wizards for Tim Frazier. Dudley would give the Pelicans an alternative to guys like Solomon Hill, Quincy Pondexter and Dante Cunningham, but it's obviously not a given that this deal will come to fruition.
