Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts.

Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer.

Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten him heavily fined if there was a CBA in place, but it doesn’t mean the Pacers are happy.

We’re still waiting on the details of the owners revenue sharing plan.

The Bulls need a two guard and are apparently interested in restricted free agent Marco Belinelli. Caron Butler would be a much better fit.

David Stern is not popular on twitter.

Derrick Rose says he is to blame for the Bulls loss to the Heat. That’s not true, we all know Benny the Bull is to blame.

The Jazz are apparently not showing a lot of interest in bringing back Andrei Kirilenko, but they are interested in Sebastian Telfair, Rasual Butler, and Roger Mason.

The Grizzlies owner reiterates that they will match any offer for Marc Gasol. As they should.

The Bucks would like to re-sign Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.

Bostjan Nachbar is coming back to the NBA after a couple of years in Turkey and the Celtics, Knicks and Nets have spoken to the forward.

There’s a report that if the Trail Blazers use their amnesty on Brandon Roy he might just retire. I don’t buy this one in the least but passing it along.
