The Warriors are still looking to see if they can upgrade their core without laying complete waste to what they’ve already built. Don’t close the door on a possible return of Jarrett Jack, one source said, suggesting that the Cavs would help their campaign to retain Kyrie Irving by acquiring Harrison Barnes, who Irving stumped for before the draft. Knowing the familiarity between Lacob and Ainge, I’d be surprised if a Green-for-Barnes-centered swap wasn’t at least broached as well. Bleacher Report

Jarrett Jack hears the same things everyone else does. Two days before the NBA's trade deadline, there were rumors that the Cavaliers guard is headed to Brooklyn in exchange for Jason Terry, or to Sacramento for any number of players. Jack doesn't know what's true and what's not. And he's not worrying about it. "I can't worry about it unless I find out there's some legitimacy to it," he said. Meanwhile, he hopes that the rumors are false. Although Jack's start in Cleveland hasn't been what he's expected – he's averaging 8.5 points on 39.7 percent shooting – he's happy where he is. "It's good to be wanted and coveted," Jack said, "but I didn't come here to want to leave in four months. I came here to try to help build something, and I want to keep that going for as long as I can. " Cleveland Plain Dealer

A league source confirmed the Cavs have held talks with the Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets over a possible deal for Jack, who is owed another $12.6 million guaranteed over the next two seasons. ESPN.com first reported the trade negotiations involving Jack, who has been shopped for the last couple of weeks. Akron Beacon Journal

By the time Miles entered the game early in the second quarter, the Cavs were down by 26 points, soon to be 29, at 50-21. He said he tried to bring the kind of energy, pace and spacing that clearly were missing. But he also made an interesting observation about how the Cavs continually find themselves in these situations. "I just think we get discouraged too easily,'' he said quietly. "It's been hard, and it's going to be hard. There have been nights where we played our hardest and played our best basketball and haven't been able to win games, and there have been nights that we didn't play good basketball and won games. "Lately, with everything that's been going on, it's just like our mental focus…take anything that's bothering you or any frustration and leave it out there. if you don't want anybody to talk about you, prove them wrong.''

Two opposing general managers this season have told me they think Irving is pouting. Over what is anyone’s guess. Jarrett Jack hasn’t been the locker room enforcer he was supposed to be. Luol Deng should help, but he just arrived and may not be here past April. That has left Mike Brown trying to keep everyone in his “circle” despite what has been a disappointing season.
