The Nets plan to pursue Dwight Howard. Good thing no one else has that plan for 2012. 

Tony Parker is out 2-4 weeks with a calf strain. It's the first major injury for the Spurs this season, which goes a long way towards explaining why they're at the top of the West. 

The Clippers are bringing in veterans who "know how to win." This is a classic case of putting the cart before the horse. 

Al Jefferson will not back down to Kevin Garnett. He'll lose to him, sure, but not back down.

The Sixers have hired a shooting coach for Evan Turner. 

George Karl is relieved at having everything over, and you can sense it in how he's coaching this Nuggets team.

A writer contends that the "relative boonies" deserve no sympathy in the NBA. 

The fans are already chanting Deron Williams' name in Jersey. 

If you missed it, Ben Golliver takes a long look at the Gerald Wallace trade. 

And we give you the rundown on all the top buyout targets.
