Spears On Rondo, Lin, Barnes, Turner

Can the Rockets keep soaring past the All-Star break?  In his latest power rankings, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports brings Houston up from No. 7 to No. 4, putting them right behind the HeatPacers, and Thunder.  Will they make a big splash in the days to come to hold their spot?  Spears has the goods on that and more..

  • According to a source, the Kings offered the Celtics Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLemore, and two picks for Rajon Rondo.  However, Rondo wasn’t interested in re-signing with Sacramento.
  • While the Rockets would love to trade Omer Asik, a source says they won’t trade reserve Jeremy Lin due to the scoring value he brings.
  • Sources tell Spears that Warriors executives have informed forward Harrison Barnes that, barring a blockbuster offer, he will not be traded before Thursday’s deadline.  Recently, Warriors owner Joe Lacob said that he hopes to keep Barnes for the long haul.
  • The 76ers want to move Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes and could act as a third team in a significant trade.
  • Raptors coach Dwane Casey is in the final year of his deal but Spears hears that he has impressed GM Masai Ujiri.
  • The Pelicans could be trading guard Austin Rivers and the rights to D-League guard Pierre Jackson between now and Thursday.
  • The Kings are in the market for a veteran backup point guard who can push the ball up the floor.
  • With several teams looking for backup point guards, Bucks veteran Luke Ridnour could be on the move.

    When it comes to Rondo I’m not sure what I want them to do. He’s such a great player, and can change the whole outcome of a game whenever he wants, but he has zero help. It makes sense to maximize while they can, but it would be tough to see him go.

    He gets to pick where he would resign. Rivers to Clippers.
