It makes almost no sense for the Lakers to make a run at Kris Humphries, they have more pressing needs (point guard) and no money to spend really, but that is the rumor from one quarter.

Whatever the Washington Wizards decide to do with the amnesty clause, Rashard Lewis wins.

The Wizards top priority is to ink Nick Young to a longer deal.

A lot of teams are eyeing Brandon Roy if the Blazers use the amnesty clause on him as expected, but don’t expect him to slip past the Timberwolves or Warriors in the bidding process. (This time around guys waived by amnesty cannot just choose a team; rather teams under the salary cap can bid to pick up a portion of their contract and the highest bid gets the player.)

NBA.com’s David Aldridge says the Celtics are looking very hard at Tyson Chandler as a free agent. I looked really hard at a $5 million beachfront home once, didn’t mean I could afford it. (The Celtics don’t have the cap space for a run at Chandler.)

Expect the Nets to make a run at Tayshaun Prince.

Expect the Pistons to make a run at Big Baby (that’s Glen Davis to the rest of us).

how u? A lot of players are lobbying Roger Mason Jr. to come play for them.

Making the argument that the NBA lockout was about the owners trying to control the workers more than it was just about the money.

A report that Andrea Bargnaini seems to have lost weight and is moving well. That’s nice.

In what is really news to nobody, the Memphis Grizzlies say they will match any offer another team makes to Marc Gasol.

The Golden State Warriors are in the market for a big man. Who isn’t?

We talked about this before the lockout and we can do so again now — the Bobcats buyout of Bismack Biyombo from Spain is not going to be that simple. http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/11/29/tuesday-morning-one-liners-rumor-mill-starting-to-spin/

Kris Humphries can go to LA and play with his brother-in-law for a day, Lamar!

Tyson wont be a Celtic, they cant afford him

If healthy, even with his knees, I think Roy could fit into Minnesota quite nice.

Too bad there is no cartilage left in his knees.

Maybe the gas is what killed the cartilage.
