Marc Stein: Hearing that the Utah Jazz are lining up another 10-day deal for @nbadleague rebound machine Jack Cooley. Jack Cooley already had one 10-day with Jazz and has been a 20/20 guy since return to @nbadleague, topped by record-setting game w/29 boards. Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

A rejuvenated Kanter is averaging 15.5 points and 9.4 rebounds while shooting 55 percent from the field since being traded. His smile broadens while he raves about his new point guard and mentor. "I have no words," Kanter said. "He has been unbelievable. He is helping his teammates, he is scoring the ball, and he is rebounding. He has been really good." NBA.com

The center position is a little muddy Thursday, with a lot of inconsistency. Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert ($6,800 salary; 13.6% of your cap) looks to be the best option. He is averaging 15 boards and more than two blocks per game over the last six. The risky part is that he's only averaging 10 points in that stretch. The New York Knicks' Andrea Bargnani ($4,500; 9.0%), the Milwaukee Bucks' Zaza Pachulia ($3,000; 6.0%), and the Cleveland Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov ($4,800; 9.6%) are all at midrange prices with decent matchups, but their production hasn't been good enough to strongly consider HoopsHype

The Jazz did re-up point guard Bryce Cotton to another short deal. “I think I just showed them who I was,” the 6-1 playmaker said. “(I am) a guy who tries to fit in with the culture and do what’s necessary, bring energy and be a great teammate and just be professional about the whole business.” Deseret News

Gobert and Noel each got slapped with a technical foul late in the fourth quarter for a brief, less-than-cordial interaction under the basket. The double techs were doled out after Noel swung on the rim a bit and Gobert swiped his arm at him after the play. Spur of the moment reaction? Or was that act of frustration building up throughout a physical game against a potential rival player? “He was talking too much, that’s why,” Gobert said when asked about the technical. “I just got mad and I shouldn’t react. I shouldn’t react.” Deseret News

Spencer Checketts: Rather irrelevant at this point, but just caught wind that Jazz had serious discussions at trade deadline with Warriors to acquire David Lee Twitter
