The Rockets have already made two midseason moves, but they have still been working the phones. League sources say they have been dangling Jason Terry’s $5,850,313 expiring contract in trade talks, and it seems they’re open to packaging it with picks or prospects in order to complete a deal. Expiring contracts aren’t as valuable in today’s NBA, but certain teams do have interest in ending or non-guaranteed deals. Basketball Insiders

Days after his friend and former teammate Shawn Marion said he would retire after the season, Rockets guard Jason Terry maintained he has not changed his plan to play until he is 40-years-old. “I was shocked,” Terry, 37, said of Marion’s decision. “He told me in Cleveland the last time we played them. “I think I can play until the age 40. That’s my goal, something that I set out to do when I first came into the league. My idol is Gary Payton. He played 20 years. Hopefully I can do the same.” Houston Chronicle

Coach Rick Carlisle wasn't talking out of school, but he kind of put the onus on Cuban when he said that new Houston Rocket Jason Terry will be immortalized at American Airlines Center someday. "He's one of the all-time great Maverick players," Carlisle said. "No doubt about that. His number will be retired one day. I have no doubt about that. I have strong feelings because he and I were very close." Dallas Morning News

Terry agrees with Barkley. He, too, is on the opposite end of the spectrum from Rose when it comes to playing with injuries. "I try not to think about, 'OK it's going to hurt in three years,' " Terry said. "I try to go as hard as I possibly can and let God take care of the rest because if you live in the moment, that's what it's all about - taking advantage of every moment because one turned ankle, one false move, one guy falls into your legs, anything can happen on the court.

Cuban hopes it will be Duncan’s last and would like to honor the future Hall of Famer on March 24, the Spurs’ last scheduled trip to Dallas of the season. “If we get word that it’s his last year here, we’ll do something special,” said Cuban, who would similarly honor former Mavs Steve Nash and Jason Terry if they make it clear they plan to retire at the end of the season. “We did the same thing for David Robinson. I’m hoping Tim will bless us with those words.“ What kind of farewell prize might Cuban offer Duncan? The possibilities are practically limitless. "Probably worth a salary-cap violation,” Cuban joked. ESPN.com

Rockets coach Kevin McHale said that he plans to play “a bunch of guys” in the upcoming exhibition games. The Rockets play two games this week, starting Tuesday night in Dallas. One player that won’t be participating this week is Jason Terry. The guard, who hasn’t been able to go through a full practice due to a pulled hamstring, said he will be sitting out one more week. “I am a guy who wants to get out and go,” Terry said. “(The training staff) is holding me back a little and strengthening the leg, getting me in condition before I go out and get after it. I have another week of slow progression but then I should be ready to go next weekend.” Houston Chronicle
