Cuban hopes it will be Duncan’s last and would like to honor the future Hall of Famer on March 24, the Spurs’ last scheduled trip to Dallas of the season. “If we get word that it’s his last year here, we’ll do something special,” said Cuban, who would similarly honor former Mavs Steve Nash and Jason Terry if they make it clear they plan to retire at the end of the season. “We did the same thing for David Robinson. I’m hoping Tim will bless us with those words.“ What kind of farewell prize might Cuban offer Duncan? The possibilities are practically limitless. "Probably worth a salary-cap violation,” Cuban joked. ESPN.com

Rockets coach Kevin McHale said that he plans to play “a bunch of guys” in the upcoming exhibition games. The Rockets play two games this week, starting Tuesday night in Dallas. One player that won’t be participating this week is Jason Terry. The guard, who hasn’t been able to go through a full practice due to a pulled hamstring, said he will be sitting out one more week. “I am a guy who wants to get out and go,” Terry said. “(The training staff) is holding me back a little and strengthening the leg, getting me in condition before I go out and get after it. I have another week of slow progression but then I should be ready to go next weekend.” Houston Chronicle

Sam Amick: Kings announce Houston trade that lands them Gee, Hopson & - last but not least - trade exception in exchange for Jason Terry & two 2nds. Exception, I'm told, worth $5.85 million and one of largest in the NBA. Third, perhaps, behind Minny's K. Love & Rox' Jeremy Lin exceptions? Twitter @sam_amick

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has acquired Jason Terry from the Sacramento Kings. In addition to the veteran guard, the Rockets will acquire Sacramento’s 2015 2nd round pick if it falls between 31 and 49, and New York’s 2016 unprotected 2nd round pick. In exchange, the Rockets will send forward Alonzo Gee and guard Scotty Hopson to the Kings. NBA.com

The Kings still are looking to gain roster flexibility by trading one or more of their power forwards and possibly dealing guard Jason Terry, who has said he would prefer not to play in Sacramento. The Kings say they have no plans to buy out Terry, who is due $5.45 million this season. Meanwhile, the Kings are trying to avoid paying the luxury tax and will continue to look for ways to shed salary to stay below the tax line of $76.829 million. Sacramento Bee

Terry said in a radio interview in Dallas that he would love to play for the Mavericks, where he was a former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and part of the 2011 NBA Champions. “I won’t rule out returning back to Dallas,” Terry said. “It’s my home and my heart,” Terry said. “I bleed blue. I’m a Maverick.” Sacramento Bee

Based on his comments, it doesn’t matter what else the Kings do short of landing a superstar that would make them title contenders. Terry wants no part of Sacramento. “I wouldn’t say it’s rebuilding, but a building process,” Terry said. “DeMarcus Cousins is a huge talent. Attitude, a little shaky. Rudy Gay, not a proven winner in this league but a tremendous talent and a guy you can build around. “They’re in transition right now. For me, at this point in my career, I want championships.” Sacramento Bee

Former Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry joined ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “The Afternoon Show with Tim Cowlishaw and Matt Mosley” on Friday and reasoned the Spurs could have made a tactical move in regard to the AC based on what the veteran point guard has seen them do in the past. “You know what, Pop [Spurs coach Gregg Popovich] has done that so many times. I don't know if it's a conspiracy, but I'm telling you, going into San Antonio is a tough place to play,” Terry said. “And I can remember very well one time where it was cold showers, there were about a thousand flies in the locker room. This year, there was a snake in the locker room. So, they're going to pull out all the stops to get into your head. “When you go to San Antonio, expect something like that. And Miami fell victim to it." ESPN.com
