Jake Fischer: I've never heard Sixers have truly been interested in Dion Waiters & swapping Thad's professionalism for a gunner doesn't seem like Hinkie. Twitter @JakeLFischer

Sources told Sporting News that Philadelphia and Denver, again, are interested in participating in whatever deal happens for Love. Denver has interest in acquiring Love themselves, while the Sixers would like to facilitate a trade by including forward Thaddeus Young. Sporting News

On top of all that, there are league-wide whispers of a third team perhaps getting involved in a potential Cavs-Wolves deal, whispers of the 76ers possessing a strong interest in Cavs guard Dion Waiters, whispers of another major transaction on the way. Yeah. Unreal. FoxSports.com

The Knicks had a conversation with Philadelphia about two weeks ago regarding Amar'e Stoudemire, league sources said, but those talks never gained any traction. The Sixers and Jazz are among the teams with enough salary cap space to absorb a massive contract in return for promising players or draft picks, but Stoudemire's history of knee trouble makes his $23.4 million expiring contract especially risky.

In a potential cap-clearing move to make room for Chris Bosh, the Rockets have a deal in place to send Jeremy Lin to the Sixers, according to league sources. The deal hinges on whether LeBron James goes to Cleveland. If he returns to the Cavs, then Bosh is almost guaranteed to also leave Miami and head to Houston. To give Bosh a four-year, $88 million deal, the Rockets have to create cap space and can do that by trading Lin, the ex-Knick who will make almost $15 million next season. New York Daily News

According to LibertyBallers.com, the Rockets and Sixers have agreed in principle on a trade that would send point guard Jeremy Lin and a first-round pick to Philadelphia to create cap space for Houston to add a maximum-contract player such as Bosh. Multiple reports earlier in the week said the Rockets have offered Bosh a max contract in the event they could trade Lin, who is owed $15 million next season with $8.4 million of that counting against the cap. However, an NBA source said the Sixers "remain an option [for Houston], but their cap space may prove too expensive." The source also said they believe the Rockets have other options when it comes to moving Lin. CSNPhilly.com

"This time of year, there are way more [offers] leaked than real, and way more postured by one team or another than there's any legs to. We are involved in a lot of conversations. We are not involved in as many as has been reported," Hinkie said Tuesday before the Sixers' 92-71 victory over the Houston Rockets at the Amway Center practice court. Philadelphia Inquirer

The Sixers have $30 million in cap space and have made it known they’d be willing to accept an undesirable expiring contract if a pawn is thrown in. That extra pawn likely would be Iman Shumpert — something the Knicks prefer not to do. New York Post

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.
