Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not other posts here at PBT.
What if the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Magic? That would be interesting.
The Nets are going very hard after Nene.
New Orleans has made bringing back David West its top priority.
The Lakers might consider Delonte West as they need some more athleticism at the PG spot. Can you picture Metta World Peace (aka Ron Artest) and Delonte in the same locker room?
The Lakers may try to get Josh McRoberts as a backup big. The Grizzlies are interested in him, too.
Samuel Dalembert was considered the fallback big for the Miami Heat, but his price tag may be too high for them.
The Wizards’ Nick Young is drawing interest from Chicago, Denver, New Orleans, Sacramento and Phoenix. He is a restricted free agent so the Wizards can match any offer.
The Raptors, Hornets, Rockets, Warriors, and Timberwolves have all had conversations and may make a run at Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers have said they would match any offer, but this is Donald Sterling’s team so who knows.
Andray Blatche‘s shoulder is only about 80 percent. Because he needs another excuse.
New Warriors coach Mark Jackson has hope for Andris Biedrins. That’s good, someone should.
Brian Scalabrine is back in the USA everybody!
What really is causing that Rajon Rondo personality friction in the Celtics locker room.
The Lakers would love to keep Shannon Brown but he is likely gone for a bigger payday.
The lockout cost Oklahoma City $18 million.
Glen Davis, the man you call Big Baby, is having talks with the New Orleans Hornets.
Josh Howard has lined up visits with Chicago, Washington, New Jersey and San Antonio for this week.
All-Star Weekend in Orlando could be really awkward this year. Great stuff from friend-of-this-blog Eddie Rivera.
Larry Bird is in a tough spot in Indiana.
Interesting idea: Are the teams that play at a slower pace at an advantage during a condensed schedule like the one we are about to see?
The Knicks have added Alexis Ajinca to list of big men they are considering. That’s not a good sign, Knicks fans.
The Knicks are also expected to work out Bostjan Nachbar this week.
Anderson Varejao says that his foot still bothers him after hard workouts but he wants to see how it is after training camp and games.
Flip Saunders talks Wizards and the upcoming season.
The Kings may be in the lead to land Chuck Hayes.
Ryan Gosling seduces you with Public History theory (off topic, I know, but it made me laugh).
Bismack Biyombo believes his contract issues in Spain will be resolved and he will be in Bobcats training camp Dec. 9. That team has no reason to get less than the full buyout they are owed.
