January 19, 2013 Updates

A strong showing at the D-League Showcase propels Jerome Jordan to the No. 1 spot in our Call-Up Rankings, as voted by 10 NBADL executives and coaches. The Jamaican center, who played with the Knicks during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, has been excellent on the boards with averages of 15.6 ppg and 7.9 rpg. Look for Jordan to get a look from teams such as Minnesota, where the injury bug has been virulent among big men. HoopsHype

An Internet report last week had Jerome Jordan's bags packed and checked for China. But the 7-foot center was busy trying to navigate how to simply land in Memphis. Jordan spent the past week of Grizzlies training camp making a strong case for a spot on the roster. So any rumor that Jordan had agreed to other employment was news to him. "I know my agent has been talking to a bunch of teams. You know, as a worst-case scenario," Jordan said. "I don't know if there's a deal, per se, in China. But it's about making it in the NBA this year. I'm about trying to make it in the league and establish myself. I want to be around a long time." Memphis Commercial Appeal

After spending last season with the New York Knicks, big man Jerome Jordan is currently an unrestricted free agent. Jordan was traded to the Houston Rockets as part of the Marcus Camby trade, but was waived by the Rockets several days later. Now, Jordan is working out at Impact Basketball in Los Angeles and waiting to see what his future holds. “It was kind of tough, especially because it was my first time being traded,” Jordan said. “I was looking forward to going to Houston and playing, but then soon after I got waived. The only thing I can control is working hard. I’m just going to keep working hard and be ready when the next opportunity comes.” “I’m just waiting. I know my agent is talking and working for me. I’m trying to wait it out and just keep working. I want to be in a good position to play and compete for a back-up spot. I’m going to keep working hard and show teams that I can play.” HoopsWorld

If they landed Nash via a sign-and-trade with Phoenix, the Knicks would not bepart with point guard Iman Shumpert, who the Suns liked in last year's draft. New York is willing to part with a package that features Landry Fields, Toney Douglas, $3 million and the non-guaranteed salaries of Dan Gadzuric and Jerome Jordan. Fields is a restricted free agent who could be signed to a deal while Douglas' contract could be seen as an expiring contract whose salary is more than covered by the cash component. The Suns could waive Gadzuric and Jordan at no cost. Arizona Republic
