HoopsHype Jason Kapono rumors
The Sixers listened to offers, and even might have made a few, but in the end there were no nibbles, let alone a bite. A source said the Houston Rockets were looking to deal Shane Battier to the Sixers, but the Sixers don't need another perimeter player. Reports had the deal including Marreese Speights and Jason Kapono, but a source said it never really got that far. Philadelphia Inquirer
A source confirmed that many teams are interested in Kapono's shooting ability, should the Sixers agree to buy him out. At today's practice, Sixers coach Doug Collins said if the team did that, it would be for Kapono's sake, but it would also have to make sense for the organization. That's something the organization will consider now that no trades have been executed. Philadelphia Inquirer
Chris Mannix: Going to be a fight for Jason Kapono if he is bought out, sources say. If Boston doesn't make a deal, expect them to be in the middle of it. Twitter
One move the Sixers could make is to buy out swingman Jason Kapono's contract. The Sixers would bargain on a price, pay Kapono and give him the opportunity to sign with another team for the rest of the season. His $6.6 million was set to come off the budget after this season anyway and Kapono hasn't been able to find any playing time of late for coach Doug Collins so it might be something they consider.

The Philadelphia 76ers have struggled to find a trade for shooter Jason Kapono, who has fallen out of Doug Collins’ rotation. The Sixers could be willing to work a buyout for Kapono after the deadline, sources said. Yahoo! Sports
I’ve been advised that Philadelphia, with its surplus of swingmen, is open to moving sharpshooter Jason Kapono, who has one season left on his contract at $6.6 million. Kapono is a natural target for teams in the hunt for a perimeter specialist with Mike Miller and Kyle Korver getting snapped up early in free agency. ESPN.com
