Eric Pincus: In theory, if the Magic acquire Ilyasova/Jennings while under cap, either can be packaged in an additional trade with others. If the Magic had acquired Jennings/Ilyasova over the cap – can’t re-trade in a package tomorrow – added flexibility? I need to do further research, but that’s my interpretation as to why Green and Richardson were renounced. As far as trade math – no reason Magic needed to get under – as Harris for Jennings/Ilyasova is a natural match at $16 mil & $16.2 mil @BBallInsiders

Joe Vardon: Everyone wants to know if the Cavs would trade the pick, and there’s been much speculation that Cleveland would not, in fact, make a deal involving it. That’s not true, league sources have told me. The Cavs would consider trading it if the right player were available — a player who’s either elite or who has the potential to become elite and is signed for multiple years. That player may not be available. Paul George and the Thunder are getting it together. The Pelicans are playing better with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. The Cavs need a player who can dribble and shoot (sounds simple, but I’m serious), and after that, maybe a rim protector.
“Young Trey Burke was not all the way focused on basketball,’’ Burke said before the Knicks beat the Jazz 117-115. “Distractions going on in my life as a young player. “At the same time, I do feel I did a great job my rookie season. Second year, they drafted another point guard [Exum] — which kind of messed with my mind. It played with me a little bit. That’s where it went wrong. My rookie season the coach [Tyrone Corbin] gets fired. Going into the second year, it’s a whole new coaching staff to get used to. Sometimes it don’t work out.’’
