Holding a player out can lead to speculation of a pending trade. So can an emoji.
The New Orleans Pelicans want the N.B.A. to approve their acquisition of DeMarcus Cousins, which came just days after the Toronto Raptors got Serge Ibaka in a trade.
With a trade that cost very little, New Orleans is suddenly looking like the team that best exploits Golden State’s weaknesses.

The Charles Oakley affair, which Commissioner Adam Silver felt compelled to address, was the latest in a long line of the team’s off-court missteps.
Russell Westbrook had his 27th triple-double of the season as Oklahoma City rallied to beat the Knicks.
In recent years, the Knicks have not been renowned for their stability or for their aptitude at basketball.
Anthony will make his 10th appearance in the N.B.A. All-Star Game after replace Love, who injured his left knee on Tuesday.
A day after a private meeting with the owner Dolan seemed to end his ban from Madison Square Garden, Oakley said he would not be quick to forgive.
Carmelo Anthony, among others, has been mentioned in rumors, but Hornacek said he was planning on leading the same roster after the All-Star game break.
The city has had its share of dust-ups between the men who own sports teams and those employed by the franchises.
