With less than an hour left to go, the crickets continued to be heard around most of the league. I'm told all is quiet for - among many others, I'm sure - the Chicago Bulls, Memphis Grizzlies, Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, and New Orleans Pelicans. In relation to the below note on the Los Angeles Lakers' Jordan Hill, the Mavericks do have interest in him but the proposal is problematic because of the Lakers' desire to move both Hill and fellow big man Chris Kaman in order to get under the luxury tax.

The Lakers continue to weigh their options when it comes to big man Jordan Hill, with the hope of moving his $3.5 million salary, further diminishing the team’s luxury tax bill. The Lakers have talked with several teams, including the Pelicans, Bobcats, Suns and Cavaliers, but the team that might wind up in the best position to land Hill remains the Nets, a source told Sporting News.

At 24-30, the Charlotte Bobcats are clinging to the final seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and are eager to make a move to maintain that postseason spot before Thursday’s trade deadline. The team has been to the playoffs just once in its 10-year history, and owner Michael Jordan has made a playoff berth the team’s top priority. One target that has emerged, league sources told Sporting News, is shooting guard Anthony Morrow, a player who interested the Bobcats before he signed in New Orleans last summer. Morrow leads the league in 3-point shooting, at 48.0 percent, which would boost a Charlotte roster short on shooters. The Bobcats are 17th in the NBA in 3-point percentage and 28th in 3-point attempts. Sporting News
