Thomas and rookie guard Ben McLemore were the subject of a trade rumor on Monday, but coach Michael Malone and general manager Pete D’Alessandro refuted the reports following practice on Tuesday afternoon. “The report that was, I think on Yahoo!, about our offer to Boston was so erroneous and I don’t know where it came from,” Malone told reporters on Tuesday. “We dispel the rumors that are out there that we know are not true, but at the same time, this is a business and you have no idea what can happen up until trade deadline. I think all of our players realize that.” Cowbell Kingdom

D'Alessandro took exception to the report and chose to make a statement publicly, rather than have it come out through an unnamed source. "I think a lot of people act in ways in this league that I choose not to do," D'Alessandro said. "So, I'm standing here today and I'm saying Ben McLemore is a guy that we have not put in deals. He's a guy that we love here. "So, sources? I think I'm a source. We haven't put Ben in anything," he continued. "We look at Ben as a major part of what we're doing long-term." news10.net
