The Timberwolves, like the Jazz, have shown interest at one point or another in Bulls point guard Marquis Teague, a league source tells K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. Johnson doesn’t make it sound as though the Wolves are currently pursuing Teague, but if the Bulls aren’t sold on him, that bodes well for the chances that 38-year-old point guard Mike James makes Chicago’s opening night roster on his non-guaranteed deal. The Tribune scribe checks in with James, who would be the league’s fourth oldest player if he makes the squad, and we’ve got more from around the NBA: Hoops Rumors

Marquis Teague struggled Saturday night against the Wizards and, with the Jazz's Trey Burke fracturing his right finger Saturday, ESPN.com speculated the Jazz could pursue trade talks for Teague. A league source said the Timberwolves also have shown interest in the past in Teague. As a veteran, James just focuses on what he can control. "I still love the training. I still love the competition," James said. "The older you get, the first thing that goes is your preparation. You don't want to do it no more in the summertime. I'm still doing dribbling drills in the summertime. I'm still getting my thousands of jump shots up. And I'm still playing against these young guys, and they haven't showed me that I'm washed up. They still give me confidence and motivation in the summer. I can still play this game at a really high level." Chicago Tribune

The Denver Nuggets will get something back for Andre Iguodala after all. The Nuggets have agreed to separate sign-and-trade deals that will land them guard Randy Foye from the Utah Jazz and send Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Monday. ESPN.com

The Warriors had planned to sign Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million deal as a free agent last week, sources told ESPN. Instead, the restructured deal will give Golden State more salary cap flexibility, deliver Denver a $9 million trade exception and help Utah build for the future with expiring contracts and draft picks. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because teams are not allowed to confirm moves until the new league year begins Wednesday, says the original Warriors-Jazz deal remains intact. The Warriors will clear more than $24 million by sending Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush to the Jazz along with the package of draft picks. All three players are in the last year of their contracts. Golden State is only taking back Kevin Murphy and his non-guaranteed $788,000 deal from Utah. ESPN.com

The Warriors will sign-and-trade for Iguodala. This prevents renouncing Jack and Landry and their exceptions. The Nuggets will also get Foye from Utah in a sign-and-trade (for three years, $9 million, per the Deseret News). The Warriors will send another second-round pick (2018) to Utah. Contra Costa Times

In the deal, which could be finalized on Monday, Denver would sign-and-trade forward Andre Iguodala to Golden State for the four-year, $48 million contract he had agreed to sign with the Warriors. This would create a $12 million trade exception that the Nuggets would have a full year to use before it expires. Utah would sign-and-trade Foye to Denver on a three-year, $9 million deal, with a team option on the third season, sources said. Yahoo! Sports
