The Celtics pulled to within one game of the 76ers for the Atlantic Division lead after last night's overtime win against Houston. As the two teams prepare to square off for division supremacy tonight in Philadelphia, let's round up the latest out of the Atlantic…
- University of Kentucky coach John Calipari may be "in the crosshairs" of Nets management, says Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.
- Brook Lopez's ankle injury doesn't mean the Nets will be any less active at the trade deadline, as GM Billy King tells Fred Kerber of the New York Post.
- Doug Smith of the Toronto Star discusses possible uses for the roster spot the Raptors expect to free up by parting ways with Anthony Carter.
- At one point, John Smallwood of the Philadelphia Daily News believed the 76ers would trade Andre Iguodala and keep Evan Turner long-term, but now he's convinced they'll do the opposite.
- According to a CBS Philly report, longtime Daily News writer Stan Hochman told Sportsradio 94WIP today that there's an explanation for Turner's inconsistent play that has yet to go public. However, 94WIP hears from a Sixers' front office source that the team isn't aware what Hochman is referring to. Hoffman has since apologized for making the remarks, but at the same time did not exactly back off his claim that something is going on: "I will not reveal my source, nor the nature of what I was told, but it was wrong to say what I said."
