-Indiana will not buy out James Posey.
9:25 a. m. Eastern reports that the Nuggets will look to trade Al Harrington and New Jersey will try and deal Devin Harris and Troy Murphy. A Harris trade to Portland for Andre Miller could be on the back burner right now. New Jersey is also considering sending Devin Harris to Dallas in a three-way trade (which is a longshot) and are looking to get Danilo Gallinari from Denver and Aaron Brooks from Houston.

Houston has tons of interest in Nene and they’re looking to trade Felton and Gallinari. Chicago is interested in JR Smith but there was not much progress made.
-New Jersey is peddling Devin Harris all over the league and are looking to acquire Gallinari and Timofey Mozgov, with little success thus far according to Chris Mannix. Don’t count on it, says Chris Broussard.

-Carmelo Anthony will look to make his debut on Wednesday. New York is looking at signing Jared Jeffries if he is bought out or Earl Barron. Knicks GM Donnie Walsh could remain in New York but it would take a lot of damage control from owner James Dolan, says Alex Kennedy. One source told Kennedy that Walsh said “I’m done” during the trade negotiations. Chauncey Billups has been assured his contract will be renewed next season.
-Boston is interested in Rip Hamilton, Anthony Parker and Shane Battier but the Celtics don’t have much to give up.
