Eastern Notes: Hairston, Bazemore, Heat

First-round draft pick P.J. Hairston told Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer that he had no idea his agent, Juan Morrow, wasn’t union-certified, as Kami Mattioli of The Sporting News reported Thursday. It’s unclear if the Hornets, who acquired Hairston in a draft-night trade with the Heat, engaged in negotiations with Morrow, but they’d be subject to a $50K fine if they did, as Mattioli notes.

More from out of the east:

  • The Cavaliers pursuit of free agents Ray Allen and Mike Miller has intensified over the last few hours, reports Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio (Twitter link).
  • Miller has a serious interest in joining the Cavaliers, reports Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today (Twitter link).
  • The Bulls and Hornets are in pursuit of Kirk Hinrich, sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (Twitter link).
  • The Heat are engaged in discussions with free agents Trevor Ariza and Luol Deng for their job opening at small forward, tweets Wojnarowski.
  • Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders tweets that the Hawks and the Hornets are showing serious interest in Kent Bazemore.
  • There is a strong market for Heat free agent Chris Andersen, but he remains “very loyal” to the Miami organization, and hasn’t made a decision about where he’ll sign, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com (Twitter link).

    No surprise there on Ariza/Deng…I assumed that earlier…Has anyone heard anything about Lance Stephenson since the whole Pacers thing went down?

    • HoopsRumors

      A few scattered mentions, but nothing resembling strong movement toward a deal or even the kind of offer he seems to be looking for, as our Lance Stephenson rumors page shows: link to hoopsrumors.com

        so pretty much exactly where things were previously with him…I would assume we’ll start seeing his name out there in the next couple of days now that some pieces are falling into place…Thanks for the response
