After signing Aaron Brooks, the Bulls no longer are in talks with Toney Douglas. They do plan on signing at least one and possibly two players to veteran minimum contracts. Their targets are one more big man for depth and a wing. Chicago Tribune

That was all Toney Douglas had played in his two weeks since joining the Heat, acquired to fill the roster spot previously occupied by the popular Joel Anthony. Now, on Feb. 11 in Phoenix, the journeyman guard would be starting for the two-time defending champions against the upstart Suns, pressed into action because Dwyane Wade had suffered a midday migraine. He was anxious to make an impression. The Heat's leader sensed he needed some validation, so he offered three words: "Be you, Toney." That's what it took to settle Douglas' stomach. That's not where LeBron James stopped. Every time Douglas played, over the final few weeks of the season, James made sure to make him feel comfortable and valuable. Douglas quickly got a handle on James' leadership style, which was largely "by example every day, in practice, in the locker room, on and off the court; he doesn't cheat the game." Bleacher Report

"No matter what, if he passes you the ball and you miss a shot, he doesn't get mad," Douglas said. "He's like, 'It's alright, OK, shoot the next one, have confidence.' The best player in the world saying that to you, that's a great feeling. Knowing that he believes in you, and he has confidence in you." Bleacher Report

With Oden looking like he can be a contributor, the Heat sent veteran center Joel Anthony to Boston last week as part of a three-team deal that brought guard Toney Douglas to Miami. But people around the league think the Heat are still looking to make another deal, for a wing, before the trade deadline. NBA.com

The trade will save the Heat about $7.7 million in salary and luxury taxes this season and frees them on the $3.8 million they owed Anthony for next season. Depending on the Heat's salary-situation for next season, this is a deal that could end up saving them more than $15 million in salary and luxury taxes for a player who played just 37 minutes this season.

The Warriors renew acquaintances on Sunday night with Jarrett Jack, their former backup point guard who played such a vital role during last year's run to the Western Conference semifinals. Their reunion with Jack comes on a night in which current backup point guard Toney Douglas will be unavailable. Douglas has food poisoning and is out for Sunday's 3 p.m. tip against the Cleveland Cavaliers -- the first game of a season-long seven-game road trip. Golden State coach Mark Jackson made it clear before the game just how much Jack's one season in Oakland meant to him. "Can't put it into words," Jackson said. "He's an incredible, incredible man. He was a great leader for us." Contra Costa Times
