Here's the latest news from around the league courtesy of Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski with all links going to Twitter..

  • The Wolves have been aggressive in offering multiple first-round picks for established talent, according to league sources (Twitter link).  We've heard some trade buzz around Minnesota in recent weeks, but it has mostly concerned guard Luke Ridnour.
  • The Celtics are on several fronts, including discussions on Josh Smith, Wojnarowski tweets.  They've got plenty of competition, however, as the Nets are solely focused on making a deal for Smith, despite being linked to a few other big names in recent weeks.
  • Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni has remained intrigued with bringing exiled Jazz guard Raja Bell to Lakers, sources tell Wojnarowski.  The Jazz would be delighted to put a bow on their saga with the disgruntled guard.
  • League GMs believe that the Hawks, Bucks, and Suns will make significant moves before the trade deadline.
  • The Trail Blazers are still willing to move J.J. Hickson, but haven't found an appealing offer yet.
  • Teams trying to trade for J.J. Redick of the Magic are surveying the cost of re-signing him this summer, Wojnarowski tweets.  If Bucks move a starting guard, he'll be a major target for them.
