    Looks like Tyson Chandler is not going back to Dallas:

    http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...-training-camp


    "I really think I'm going to be on a new team come training camp," Chandler told ESPN.com in a telephone interview Wednesday night. "I'm really taking a hard look at all of my options, trying to see what best suits me."

    The Knicks are interested in Foster:

    The Knicks want another star, but they're also targeting veteran role players. Sources say they're interested in Grant Hill and Jeff Foster.

    Max money for Tyson?

    Chandler clearly expects huge payday. I was told today that the type of $ figures his camp threw out there today were through the roof.

    I have it on pretty solid authority that Jeff plays here or he retiers. His kids are in school here, he likes it here & has no interest in moving them. The only consideration he would give is playing for the SAS. Money is not a need for Jeff. If he had to walk away today, he would do so w/ no regrets.

    Rondo/Nene to Indiana?

    Rajon Rondo’s name keeps coming up, with another prominent rumor having him possibly heading to Indiana. Sources close to the situation in Indiana called this rumor “absurd,” and said the Pacers had not reached out to the Celtics in any way regarding Rondo. They recognize Rondo’s talent, but they aren’t sure his personality is right for the team.

    On the other hand, the Pacers have expressed interest in Denver Nuggets free agent Nene, who is also seeing interest from teams like the Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and Miami HEAT. The only reason Nene’s name is even out there is because the Nuggets are not expecting to put a max deal on the table for Nene, and one NBA executive told HOOPSWORLD today he doesn’t think Nene warrants such a contract. He’s a good player, yes, but not a max player.

    This explains why Nene is suddenly being seen as a player who could be had for the right price. The Nuggets can pay him more than anyone else, but if they choose not to the bidding way could prove to be interesting.

    http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...-mavericks-yet

    Unrestricted free agent Caron Butler has received early interest from six teams, but the Dallas Mavericks are not yet one of them, a source close to the situation said Wednesday.

    The NBA relaxed the lockout rules and permitted teams to contact players' agents beginning at 8 a.m. CT. Those that quickly expressed interest in the 6-foot-7 Butler are the San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, New Jersey Nets and Chicago Bulls.

    I dunno if he is worth it or not. But I want a Twin Towers line up so if I were Larry Bird I'd be calling up Tyson's agent. I think I recall reading somewhere that he and Danny got along great on Team USA being 2 of the older players on that team.

    Landry for 5mil? meh...

    Jason Quick: Blazers will also look at Carl Landry and Chuck Hayes, knowing that Landry would probably command the full $5 mid-level exception. Twitter

    Butler should go to the Celtics, he could be amazing behind Allen.

    Yes it would. He's already looking old(er) to me as of what I noticed in the playoffs last year. It's only going to get worse now that his legs are starting to leave him. Nice player right now, though.

    He also has some toe issue, remember when OKC send him back to NO? Something is wrong with him.

    NBA front office sources list New Jersey, Houston, Toronto and Golden State showing interest in Chandler the most, according to hoopshype.com.

    Because they still have to pay almost all of it and then add $35 mil in salary to reach the minimum team salary. Might as well be deep in the tax.
