Speaking on First Take, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said the Knicks and Sixers have had conversations about a deal that would send Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert to the Philadelphia. Although what the Sixers would send back isn't clear, it likely wouldn't be much more than a draft pick or non-guaranteed contract player, as the Knicks would do the deal to clear cap space.

Carmelo Anthony was welcomed at Toyota Center in Houston on Wednesday with a billboard of him wearing a Rockets uniform. Inside the arena was a mural of Anthony holding the Larry O'Brien Trophy in a Rockets uniform with "The Key to a championship formula," written alongside him on the wall. That's all standard operating procedure for teams recruiting prized free agents. But what made this billboard interesting is that Anthony was wearing a No. 7 jersey, which currently belongs to his former Knicks teammate Jeremy Lin. And it's not just that Lin, who had his breakout moment three seasons ago with the Knicks, would need to be traded in order for Houston to add the cap space to sign Anthony. But the perception was that Anthony was partly responsible for running Lin out of town when the Knicks failed to match the contract offer Houston gave the then restricted free agent.

"Absolutely, I'm going to do whatever I can to help the team and the organization," Chandler said on a conference call with Dallas reporters a day after he was the centerpiece of a six-player trade. "At the end of the day, free agency is kind of an individual thing. And I know that I was once there and it comes down your family and what's best for you career-wise. ESPN.com
